Down to Earth: The Planet to Plate Podcast

Apr 23, 2019

<strong>Leah Penniman</strong> fell in love with farming when she was a teenager, became a farmer and food justice advocate, and with her husband founded <a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Soul Fire Farm</a> in Grafton, New York. The farm provides food in for those with limited access to fresh produce, and it's a center for teaching and learning about farming and African/indigenous heritage for people of color. Leah's new book, <em><a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Farming While Black: Soul Fire Farm’s Practical Guide to Liberation on the Land</a></em>, is a profound and wide-ranging exploration of everything from the practical details of how to start a farm to the rich history of African-heritage farming and healing traditions.
