Inventor and Farmer, Andrew Beard~Born in Alabama in 1849, Andrew Beard spent the first fifteen years enslaved on a small farm in Alabama. A year after he was emancipated, he got married and became a farmer in a small city outside of Birmingham. While in Birmingham, he was able to develop and champion his first invention (a plow). Three years later, he patented a second plow. These two inventions earned him almost $10,000, with which he began to invest in real estate.

Host: Samiyyah Saafir-Muhammad
Guests: Shamir and Chaava Muhammad of The Black Agricultural Survival Expo (B.A.S.E.)
Shamir Muhammad has been growing and planting since the age of six. At thirteen, Shamir was introduced to horticulture by Jill Barrett of the Knox Parks Foundation. This would be the beginning of his formal training in agriculture and horticulture.
In October 2010, Shamir was introduced to Will Allen by way of Dr. Alim Muhammad through a workshop presentation. In that workshop, Shamir was reconnected to his first love, agriculture. He also knew at that moment that he not only wanted to be a farmer, but a scientist - a supreme god of agriculture. From that day in October 2010, Shamir works sleeps, and breathes agriculture. His sole purpose is to help The Hon. Min. Louis Farrakhan build an Agricultural Dynasty to end poverty and want.
Chaava Muhammad, an event, promotions, and marketing coordinator of Dress The Garden, is a native of Brooklyn, NY. After taking the journey to Tuskegee, Alabama for the 18th anniversary of the Million Man March, Chaava teamed up with her husband Shamir, to form B.A.S.E. (Black Agriculture Survival Expo), which aims in helping the black nation recognize the importance of beginning to do for self. B.A.S.E. is a platform where black farmers, manufacturers, distributors, students, educators and consumers are able to meet to study, teach, train, learn, present ideas, products, and services that relate to agribusiness and ensure the survival and success of black national life.
Tonight we will have the National Black Farmers Association on to discuss their 24TH Annual Conference to be held November 7-8, 2014.
Everyone is welcomed to attend.
We also will be discussing how we as the community can support our Black Farmers, create jobs in our communities and in the process eat healthier and wiser.
We all know that Food, Shelter and Clothing are keys to having our basic needs met. Can we possibly cut out the middle man in this equation by establishing this relationship?
Please join us and let us know if you have any ideas, resources or possible solutions to helping us to build this bridge.
