At Groundswell, when we talk about land, we acknowledge its deep connection to policy and power.
As an organization training people to be farmers, land is at the backbone of our work. Land is also at the root of racial equity, food sovereignty, economic prosperity, health and wellbeing, and the climate crisis. We must consider the intersection of all these issues as we approach our mission of creating a diverse, sustainable and equitable food system.
Central to all of our land access work is our membership in the Land Access Reparations & Reconciliation Working Group. This Working Group is one of the accountability partners that directs Groundswell land access and land linking activities (see below). The Working Group has created a web site of its own to serve as the landing page and central point for online communication about ongoings, events and resources.
