Black Yield Institute, directed by 2017 OSI Community Fellow Eric Jackson, and the Farm Alliance of Baltimore co-host End-Dependence Day tomorrow, Tuesday, October 16th, at 2640 Space.
The event will include a community meal and a workshop on organizing for food sovereignty. Register here.
Through his Fellowship, Jackson is organizing two community-controlled cooperative food ventures in Cherry Hill and Poppleton, creating a community-oriented, self-determined solution to food insecurity and its effects. The Building Black Land and Food Sovereignty Practice – through the Black Yield Institute – aims to improve residents’ quality of life, develop black, indigenous leaders and create a self-sustaining community.
