Justice requires a conscious, vigilant and active populace. Building towards food justice requires that we conduct public education campaigns to make communities aware of the impact of the current food system on our planet, our health and the economies of our communities.
DETROIT BLACK FARMER LAND FUND
We are a coalition of three long-standing Detroit urban farming organizations with a collective mission to rebuild inter-generational land ownership for Black Farmers in Detroit: The Detroit Black Food Security Network (DBCFSN), Oakland Avenue Urban Farm, and Keep Growing Detroit.
DBCFSN is a proud member of the Congo Beehive Coalition. The coalition represents a group of international NGO and non-profit organizations, partnered to bring hope to communities that have been under severe distress due to a number of reasons including civil wars. We believe beekeeping can empower women and children through a pilot project planned for North Kivu.
