Mapping Midwest Farmers of Color

 Lead by Sophia Benrud this project aims to give a visual representation of where  farmers and gardeners of color in the Midwest are located, what they are working on and how to connect with them.  The project is producing an accessible directory for MFCC members to connect and have basic profiles of one another. Our mapping is currently highlighting farmers of color primarily in MN and WI and the team aims to support the work for expanding to cover the entire region. This work is intended to unite farmers of color, demonstrate opportunities to buy from their farms, to collect pertinent information for future organizing and leadership development opportunities. This project is supported by the MN Institute of Sustainable Agriculture.
