    National Back Farmers Association Helps Homeowners Become Food Producers

    in Women

    When it comes to government funding to grow food on your property, the difference between those who get it and those who don't get it boils down to one word: Farming. An urban garden might produce food that the property owner eats, feeds a family and even sells to others, but as the founders of the National Association of Black Farmers explain, gardening is a hobby. Farming is a business, and for those homeowners who want to grow food, they can tap into the many financial resources available from the Deparment of Agriculture if only they refer to their food growing activities as "farming."  Empowerment begins with land ownership and the ability to provide ones own food , clothing, and shelter. Today we learn from Dr. John Wesley and Kara Boyd how to capitalize on the power we have in our hands right now, to become producers and sellers of food.
