Nurturing Roots WORKING TITLE

Reimagine farming and food justice for all.

A WAC in-person event

Picture a small farm in a big city dedicated to growing food, fostering relationships, and cultivating the next generation of able gardeners and healthy eaters.  Spend a summer evening on the farm with Nyema Clark, an inspiring black female entrepreneur who founded and serves as Executive Director of Nurturing Roots.  She’ll share her story that brought forth the vision for this Beacon Hill working farm to promote awareness about food and enriching underserved communities.  Tour the gardens, pet some chickens, and enjoy light snacks and beverages.
