    Very Important Guests:
    Angela Provost of Iberia, Louisiana, Farmer at Provost Farms, advocate of the black farming community, cousin to Terri, and #MovementMaker.
    Provost Farm LLC is committed to supplying resources that promote equity and food security to marginalized communities. The farm was created in 2018 as an agriculture and advocacy center to preserve the ancestral legacies of South Louisiana’s Farmers of Color. They cultivate historically African and Indigenous diasporic crops for  sale and distribution to other minority owned businesses.
    They apply the wisdom of their Afro-Creole ancestors as a way to acknowledge the historical significance of black sugarcane growers and move forward toward fair and impartial institutional practices. They draw on the efforts of many progressive networks that connect rural and urban communities in order to heal damage created by centuries of “plantation” practices. They envision Provost Farm LLC as an epicenter of agricultural inclusivity and food justice for the next generation. They believe it is the right of every human being to “Bon Manger.”
    Elora Turner of Louisiana, educator, organizer, and the Co-founder & Director of Communications at Bhoomi Cane Water. After teaching in New Orleans for 7 years, Elora and Arpit (her partner in life and business as CEO of Bhoomi) moved to Austin, Texas to launch Bhoomi Cane Water.
