The young people—tilling the soil and harvesting healthy fruits and vegetables at Sankofa Community Gardenmay not all grow up to be farmers, but learning the values of agriculture will take them far in life. It’s already transforming their neighborhood. Ayanna says, “The garden enabled this community to blossom back to where it was when I was young. I grew up in this community and I’ve seen the best of the best here. I also saw the worst of the worst. Now I see the best of the best coming back.”
Family farmers make us incredibly proud. They are innovative and creative, and they deserve our support in growing a better kind of agriculture. With your help, we’re ensuring a future of good food for all of us and the values of family farm agriculture in the next generation.
As we gather with our families this holiday season, let’s give thanks for family farmers and the way they inspire hope in all of us.
Stay Strong and Positive,
