Creating Connection Through Culturally Relevant Crops

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Growing culturally specific crops provides a platform for connection, crossing language barriers and creating a space unified by food. Being an urban farm located in a diverse neighborhood, 5 Loaves Farm has had the opportunity to do just that. Join farm staff and youth interns as they share their experience of creating and maintaining a garden dedicated to ethnic specialty crops and the resulting relationships. They will share their endeavor of identifying, growing, harvesting, and selling an array of culturally relevant crops and their discovery of mutual growth and a sharing of knowledge and resources.
