Starting an Urban Community Garden: Access, Soil & Growing

As a community affected by Food Injustice by way of Structural Racism, we desired to holistically heal our community both internally and externally, leading us to establish Springfield First Herbal Atonement Farm. We will discuss how we created our community garden on once vacant lots, organizing tactics for land acquisition, community involvement and next steps.
