    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.

    Beverly Cox site manager for the Black Loyalist Heritage Society was living in Shelburne and raising her first daughter. One day, some community members approached her about the importance of Birchtown and keeping their history alive. Thus began an over-20-year relationship with the BLHS. Cox has many roles as Site Manager. She runs the site, hires summer staff and interpretive guides, makes sure the location is in impeccable shape, and ensures that visitors thoroughly enjoy their experience. Cox is also involved in fundraising for the interpretive centre and is the centre’s project manager. Of all of her roles, she loves the ones that let her interact with people the most. “I really enjoy meeting new people … So that’s my favourite part – giving our tour and partnering with other organizations to highlight our African Nova Scotian history.”
