If you look around you, wherever you are, everything you see comes from the soil… the soil is not dirt - it’s life. I support MIFFS because helping farmers who have been discriminated against is so important. I know. It happened to me. Since I’ve become involved with MIFFS, I’ve had the opportunity to get people in the city there who were planning a garden - that didn’t consider themselves farmers - out of the city and different areas to go on trips. We’ve been to Growing Power and many, many different places… it’s been quite enlightening for a lot of us. MIFFS has been a great opportunity for people to learn more about agriculture. It’s very important to visit and see what other farmers are doing to get the experience and knowledge that you can bring back to your own place.
