Down on the Farms

We'll head by bus to VSU's experimental farm for a special tour and then go farther south to Browntown Farm, Virginia's small farm of the year. Herb Brown and his family have owned their farm for more than 100 years. Listen to how these African-American farmers have adapted their land over the years and learn the history of the National Black Farmers Association, which their family was part of along with founder John Boyd Jr. We'll have a family-style lunch at Browntown, featuring some of their produce and products. Led by Duron Chavis, an urban agriculture advocate and community engagement coordinator at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. Therese Nelson, founder of Black Culinary History, will join us and share her research. $65.
