Black Star Farmers

Our mission as Black Star Farmers is to create safe, joyful, and supportive spaces for BIPOC communities to reclaim their ancestral foodways, while facilitating difficult conversations about race and inequality.

This will be achieved through the creation of farms on public lands that produce easily accessible and high quality produce, plants, and traditional medicines. That will alleviate the traumatic effects of food injustice and food deserts that are prevalent in communities of color.

Our work was born in the Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP), but has long-term aspirations beyond this current moment and place, and certainly will not be limited to the space at CHOP. 

With these funds we hope to buy the equipment, tools, and materials necessary to build small-scale farming businesses in the Central District and South End. Help us bring our skills and knowledge into the communities that need it most!

A third of these funds will be donated directly to local food justices organizations such as Nurturing Roots , YES Farms , and The Common Acre .
