It is June 2, 2020 and many cities across our nation are on fire and many of our hearts are blazing with the witness and/or experience of inequitable systems designed to rank human value.
When we buy into those systems, we diminished ourselves because no human life is more valuable or worthy than another. But divesting from inequitable systems takes constant, intentional practice. And like planting an orchard, it can be a long time before we see any fruit from our work.
At Firstfruits Farm SLO, we renounce the ranking of human value by growing the best, highest quality food specifically for those of us who have been barred from accessing it.
We practice divesting from inequitable systems through the action of farming together. We push for a more equitable system with our labor of love that is growing food and freely giving it away.
