Join Pollinate Farm & Garden and Farms to Grow, Inc. for the third annual Black Hands in the Soil, an evening of film about the legacy of Black farming in the United Sates and around the world. The evening’s feature documentary, 40 Acres and a Mule, details the early struggles of Black farmers in the Central Valley. Short films focus on organic farming in North Carolina and land expropriation in South Africa. Donation: $5–$25 sliding scale, but no one turned away for lack of funds. Light refreshments served.
