Farmers of Color Organizing Support Network in Portland

In Portland, Oregon, farmers of color are organizing a network to build support amongst themselves as well as in the broader community, reports the Portland Tribune. One of the group’s efforts was a two-day networking fair to connect local Black and brown farmers to potential buyers. Attendees included food buyers from restaurants and community organizations, as well as individuals. Participants in the fair say that it offered an opportunity to meet new buyers and to connect with other farmers of color and benefit from their knowledge.
