Soilful seeks to bring justice to communities and heal the sacred relationship between communities of African decent and Mother earth. Soilful views farming not only as a way to cultivate food and sovereignty for communities, but as a way to heal and rebuild our souls. We utilize the agricultural and the political principals of Agroecology to work in solidarity with under resourced communities to develop a collective consciousness about restoring bodies, families, communities, and the land in which they live and to create a harmony amongst individuals, communities, and the natural world.
Soilful City is a space dedicated to connecting humans and nature through information, ideas, and people in urban environments. Creating Leadership through the wisdom of nature. Soilful City partners with other grassroots organizations to create community led urban sustainable projects by using urban agriculture and the wisdom of nature to reconnect people back to the earth. Soilful City seeks to find the intersecting points between urban agriculture and other social justice issues.
