Black Thumb Farm
Porter Ranch, CA
Black Thumb Farm is space to teach children and young adults to fight food injustice through hands-on training and experience, all while providing communities with access to healthy, quality produce. Hands-on and community activities include growing plants from seed to harvest, an active community accessible compost system, and workshops on exploring and implementing the mechanics of food distribution to disadvantaged communities. Food is grown sustainably and with an eye on long-term soil health so that communities may have access to healthy soil for generations to come.
Their mission is to educate young people on sustainable farming methods that will aid them in the fight against food injustice in their communities as well as provide them with a trade that they can utilize throughout their lives. They aim to give children and young people of color, particularly BIPOC, access to a safe, green space where they can explore their own passions and connection to the land.
