Black Futures Farm is a community farm, staffed by volunteers and two resident farmers. We sit on 1.15 acres with 17 different fruit trees, vegetables, flowers, medicinal and cooking herbs.
We are a group of Black identified/Diasporic and Continental African people working together, growing food and community. Our aim is to implement the best methods of growing food, taking the best of what we can from our ancestral practices while innovating.
We also have a community garden on the site of BFF, where our members teach one another and lead skillshares. Later this season, we will produce and release a series of 8 videos featuring community members sharing their knowledge around food preservation, gardening, and making specialty dishes such as Fig cobbler and Carolina slaw pickles.
