May's event was successful, and we hope to make this upcoming event even better! Black Sovereign Nation is committed to developing food security, establishing food sovereignty, and building meaningful relationships in Black and Brown neighborhoods. Join us as we continue our efforts to feed communities of color by equipping them with the skills, materials, and support needed to grow their own food. Each family has the opportunity to install a free garden bed with the help of community volunteers!

*We will be separated into three groups:
Group 1: Meet at 6606 Sandshof Dr.
Group 2: Meet at 6401 Huntleigh
Group 3: Meet at 4706 Oldfort Hill Dr.
You will be assigned a group when you RSVP. PLEASE SHOW UP IF YOU ARE ASSIGNED A GROUP AND LET US KNOW BEFORE HAD IF YOU HAVE TIME CONSTRAINTS*

Volunteers will be responsible for:
-breaking ground
-fertilizing soil
-setting stone/wood
-planting
-weeding
-watering

We'll also be talking with the commnity members about the power of growing food!

Our goal is to create long lasting relationships with families we partner with and become less involved in their growing and harvesting process as those families become more confident.
