Ready ... set ... Lets go!  

Each year hundreds of people throughout the US and across the globe join together at the Black Farmers and Urban Gardeners Conference.

This amazing conference will be held November 10-12 in Atlanta, Georgia.  Our FarmFam crew of the greatest new and seasoned farmers, is planning to go to represent Boston.

We are asking for your help to support us on this journey by donating today!

We are super excited to vibe with other black and brown activists, growers, change makers, from throughout world to exchange knowledge and share love for life, the earth, and humanity! 

As growing farmers, particularly farmers of color, it is vital for us to learn what other farmers and growers are doing to improve food systems in their communities. It is essential to gain diverse, innovative methods and tactics, and to engage with the different food justice challenges across the globe as we seek solutions at home. 

While dirty hands and buggy fields may not be your thing, it's okay! There are a few ways to support and be a part of this food movement to create and sustain health, wellness, and abundance in our communities.

Your help in supporting this educational experience for your FarmFam, is vital to our growth as urban farmers in Boston. This trip will allow us to immerse ourselves in the shared roots of urban farming and further expand our farm family. 

OK, Action Time! Here is how you can help!

Your donation today will help us raise our goal of $7000 to attend the Black Farmers Conference 2017.

Peace, together we did it ya'll. Thanks for all the love and support. Boston FarmFam made it to Atlanta for the Black Farmers and Urban Growers Conference this past weekend. It was tremendous.

In a few weeks, after we have had a chance to truly resonate with the seeds of grand emotion and possibility that we experienced, we will send one final note of thanks with some pictures and maybe video.

Thanks again, you are all the greatest.
