Program Overview: Soul Fire Farm’s Undoing Racism in the Food System Immersion (URFI) is a theory and action training for farming and food justice leaders to uproot systemic racism in our organizations and society. We will delve deep into the history and structural realities of food injustice and develop an understanding of the movement strategies of frontlines communities struggling for food sovereignty. We will examine our personal and societal roles of complicity in and resistance to the system. Much of the time will be spent developing tangible action plans – to use of sphere of influence to uproot these oppressions. True to Soul Fire Farm’s values and culture, this work will be rooted in fierce love, courageous self-reflection, and healing connection to land. We will all participate in growing and preparing our own food during the week and have ample time for networking and celebrating life. Note: This is not a farm skills training.
Cost: Sliding scale $100-750. Once you are accepted to the program, a $50 non-refundable deposit holds your spot. (Note that the real cost to run the program is around $690 per person so please support at a higher level if able.)
Who Should Apply: This program is designed for a multi-racial group of farming and food justice leaders. We define “leader” broadly as someone who has the desire and potential to create a positive impact in their community with what they learn. We will pay attention to having a diversity of sectors, ethnicities, genders, and class backgrounds in the group. There will be “caucus” space to meet with those of similar identities during the training.
