Join the Million Acre Challenge for an exciting conversation taking place on June 22, 2022 from 3-5:00PM. An interactive, storytelling panel discussion that connects food, culture and farming practices known as “regenerative” with their roots in Indigenous, African, Latinx and other heritages. Four featured, regional BIPOC farmers will raise up the work of the early pioneers of the regenerative movement, highlighting the value of their contributions both on and beyond the farm.
- Josué Barrera and Gloria Romano-Barrera – Glory Fields | Hacienda Barrera
- Vanessa Bolin – Community Roots Garden | Virginia Free Farm
- Michael Carter – The Carter Farms
- Samaria King – Juniper’s Garden
Moderated by Tope Fajingbesi of Dodo Farms with event coordination support from Adrienne Granston of Cusheeba Earth Farm. Both of these women, also from communities of color, are regenerative Chesapeake-region farmers who bring their own expertise to this conversation.
A free, farm-focused event open all who have interest. Registration required. We look forward to seeing you soon!
