WE ARE HIRING!

Basic knowledge of urban agriculture is required. Farmers must have good communication skills and be able to work collectively and harmoniously. Farmers must support DBCFSN’s mission and Black community self-determination approach to food system change. Knowledge of African American history and culture is

helpful. These jobs require physical and mental stamina to meet various challenges.

PROGRAMS

We believe that Black Food Sovereignty encompasses the intersectionality of agriculture, climate change, environmental justice, and food justice. We recognize that this is an intergenerational effort that requires connecting the community on a local, national, and global level. The Detroit Black Community Food Sovereignty Network (DBCFSN) programs and partnerships reflect this comprehensive approach, working to empower the community, promote sustainable practices, and advocate for policies that address systemic inequities. Through our initiatives, we strive to create a resilient and equitable food system that benefits all generations.

ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE

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.

CONGO BEEHIVE COALITION

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.
