Land in Black Hands Fund
New Dedicated Fund for
Land in Black Hands
In 2019 we launched our first annual Land in Black Hands event (in collaboration with the Hudson Valley Farm Hub and Scenic Hudson) and, after a second event this year during Black History Month Kingston, we asked what ideas community members of color have for local land access and ownership.
These events inspired the creation of a dedicated fund to support a quarterly convening of this group who can determine how the funds can best be used to support black land ownership/sovereignty and food/agricultural cooperatives in and around Kingston, New York.
