This poster is part of a series of images that educated youth of color about local food production and urban farming. The piece is intended to encourage people living in urban communities to reclaim vacant lots for producing their own food. The practices of growing and It makes the link between the practice of cooking and self-empowerment.
At a time when the dominant messages around food encourage us to eat “fast” and “cheap,” positive and alternative messages are of major importance in changing our diets. By learning to grow nourishing foods locally, we can make a statement about the community we wish to live in and the world we seek to create. I developed this image in collaboration with Black eco-chef, Bryant Terry.
