Rural Advancement Foundation International

The Rural Advancement Foundation International (RAFI-USA) is expanding its Farmer of Color Network (FOCN) via two programs. Through Gathering Roots, RAFI-USA convenes FOCN farmers to share farm stories that uplift cultural traditions, utilize participatory learning that values farmer wisdom, and facilitate farmer-led technical assistance using a peer-to-peer model. Through North Carolina Seed Stewards, RAFI-USA supports farmers in producing, selecting, processing, and distributing culturally significant seed varieties.
