Rural Advancement Foundation International-USA

The Rural Advancement Foundation International (RAFI-USA) is continuing to build its Farmers of Color Network (FOCN) in North Carolina and neighboring states, hosting its Gathering Roots Convenings, and expanding its NC Seed Stewards Initiative. In addition, RAFI-USA’s “Farmer Work Brigades” creates pathways of direct assistance to FOCN farmers. Implemented in partnership with the South Eastern African American Farmers Organic Network (SAAFON), volunteers in Farmer Work Brigades assist in farm work, share meals, and explore the historical and cultural traditions of agrarian communities of color.
