Location: Haverford College Apts Garden (HCA Garden)

Date: Thursday, September 16, 2021

Times: Session 1 11:30-1pm & Session 1-2:30pm


The Farm Demo & Demonstration is part 1 in a four part Black Ecologies workshop series. This series centers the knowledge, traditions and practices of local Black land and nature based practitioners, organizers and scholars. During the Farm Demo and Discussion workshop, students and participants will engage with the two Black urban Farmers who organize for food access and sovereignty in the city. The workshop will begin with a short presentation by the facilitators, along with time for Q&A. The second half of the workshop will include hands-on guided work in the HCA garden—  performing general maintenance and planting fall/winter crops. This workshop is the beginning of a project to recover the HCA garden as a viable space for student access to free organic produce at Haverford. This series is an outgrowth of the Black Ecologies first year writing seminar. 


Limited water and snacks will be provided.
