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.
