Emerging Leaders Fund organization Soul Fire Farm Institute and its co-executive director Lean Penniman were mentioned recently in a Mother Jones article. Leah Penniman was also involved with the podcast called Bite to discuss black people’s lack of land when it comes to farming. 

The innovations of black farmers have been around for centuries. Penniman and Soul Fire Farm “focus on training the next generation of Black and brown farmers, as well as providing food and medicine for our community.”
