Last weekend was a historical moment for the future of farming in Pembroke. Three black farmer training programs were in attendance for the PermaFarm Weekend at Black Oaks Center Eco Campus on June 7th & 8th. Farmer trainees from Growing Power, Family Farm Technical Assistance, and RAFT P, enjoyed workshops on Mushroom Cultivation, Vermiculture, Grassroots Herbal Medicine and more. The weekend was a successful collaboration between Raft P Farmer Training Program and Growing Power Chicago. We look forward to more collaborative training opportunities this year.
