This past weekend there were two amaz-ing events held in NYC. The annual Black Farmers & Urban Gardeners Conference& the Food Justice march on Wall Street,sponsored by the New York City CommunityGardening Coalition. Both events spoke tothe depth and strength of the NYC foodJustice Movement, and that urban agricul-ture is so much more than just growing somepeppers in the city. I loved being surround-ed by other people who love the day today tasks of what we do, and the reminder that its about so much more than them.In a journal about their experience at theBFUG Conference one of the Farm SchoolNYC students said “It made me realize thatmy community garden is not just a gardenbut a food sovereignty statement”. I lovehearing this, especially in the face of hear-ing so many complaints that people occu-pying Wall Street are just complainers offer-ing nothing.What drew me to farming full time is thefact that it is offering an alternative, a posi-tive and realistic alternative to the currentparadigm.How appropriate to spend a weekendfocusing on food justice from a dismantlingracism perspective and then join all thoseon Wall Street. We have large issues with thesystem of greed and we are working reallyhard to create an alternative.
