From Weed Chopper to Community Farmer – Listen.

My colleague and friend Demalda Newsome posted this piece that her husband and farmer partner Rufus recorded. I think it’s a piece that food organizers should carry far and wide and deep into their communities to remember the work left to be done and yes, also what has already been done by our fellow organizers. In 1995 they started a community farm in north Tulsa, Newsome Community Farms, and have helped more than a dozen families, churches and schools build backyard gardens.
