Does Regenerative Agriculture Have a Race Problem? (yes. The answer is yes, of course it bloody does)
BIPOC farmers and advocates say the latest trend in agriculture is built on an age-old pattern of cultural theft and appropriation.
Ok big question that I want to expand my audience for. Solidarity economy folks: How do you save for retirement? Do you put money in the stock market?

Soul Fire Farm put out an amazing series of videos a month ago. They're skillshare videos talking about seed keeping, green house propagation, honouring the land and more.
Soul Fire Farm is a BIPOC run community farm focused on ending racism and injustice in the food system.
"Join us for a 6-week course on Race, Class & Revolution!"
"We [will] analyze the theoretical and political contributions that radicals of color in the US have made to the fight for human liberation.

Communists in Harlem, the Young Lords, the Black Panthers, the Brown Berets, I Wor Kuen, and the American Indian Movement, among others."
Another gentle nudge for folks to update their loomio account with their social.coop handle :)
To do this, go to the MEMBERS tab on the social.coop loomio home page.
Find your name and click the three dots on the right hand side.
Select "set title".
Some folks have been adding their social.coop handle to their profile instead of changing their title- it really helps to have the handle as the title so we can connect loomio members to social.coop users!
