What Antonia Enjoys About Sharing Our Roots
I feel it's an integral time in history to be rethinking and rebuilding our food systems in a way that works for everyone. I am energized by the ways Sharing our Roots has centered intersectionality in all programming; we can not move forward with healing land and community without centering the voices and knowledge of BIPOC, immigrants, and other historically marginalized communities.
