Mapping Midwest Farmers of Color

Mapping Minnesota Farmers of Color, Midwest Farmers Of Color collective

 Lead by Sophia Benrud this project aims to give a visual presentation of where BIPOC farmers in the midwest are located, what they are working on and how to connect with them.  The project will create an accessible directory for MFCC members to connect and have basic profiles of one another. The initial map will illustrate the whereabouts of farmers in the state of Minnesota 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.
