Fresh food is a basic human right. Within the first two weeks of the COVID-19 public health crisis, food insecurity was already magnifying, particularly among BIPOC communities who were experiencing higher rates of hunger, food insecurity, and diet-related disease due to structural inequities. Women Roots Farm, a regenerative farm in Massachusetts, is actively working with BRIDGE to increase access to vibrant local farms, skill sharing, and education. Learn how this partnership has enabled more equitable, participatory practices in and around local food systems, and hear from Jenn Salinetti about how Indigenous farming practices provide healthy, vibrant, nutrient-dense plants that strengthen the health of our communities.
A note from Gwendolyn: Why this talk now? As we seek to steward the Earth’s resources more wisely and increase community health, we must center indigenous knowledge and place-based movements.
