Season 5, Episode 1: Farming and Reclaiming the Land

About: Today we are discussing Black Sustainability as it relates to increasing our knowledge about urban gardening with Guest Momomologist Iyeshima Harris-Ouedraogo.

Guest Bio:

Iyeshima started her journey in the food justice movement over 10 years ago as a Green Guerillas Youth Tiller. A Jamaican native, she struggled with the process of assimilation into a new culture. Through farming she found great comfort in her community. Throughout her involvement in the movement, Iyeshima has taught food justice, advocated for universal free school lunch, assisted in the development and sustainment of youth-led organizations, and is now the Project Director of East New York Farms! She is dedicated to integrating youth empowerment and leadership into adult dominated sectors. With a double major in Political Science and Sociology, Iyeshima wishes to combine her passion for food justice and her knowledge of American politics to drive the importance of food in people’s everyday life.
