As part of Come to the Table’s (CTTT) empowering faith communities through collaboration, the Farm and Faith Partnerships Project (FFPP) works against injustices in the food system that harm farmers of color and rural communities by creating mutually-beneficial and self-sustaining economic partnerships between farmers of color and faith groups in their communities.
In Spring 2021, RAFI-USA launched the Wake County CSA, our first pilot project. Fast forward to this past May, and Wake County is entering its eighth season. As a celebration of partnership and community, Wake County held its fifth Blessing of the Land gathering at Brown Family Farm. Usually at the beginning of the season, the Blessing of the Land is a chance for shareholders, farmers, and community members to gather on the farmer’s land and bless it for the coming season.
