Creating just pathways to agriculture
Cultivating Justice is a community-led organization meeting community-identified needs around food security, land access, environmental justice, civic engagement, power building, and pathways towards agriculture for people underrepresented in Connecticut's farming community. Our goal is to nurture Connecticut's next generation of farmers of color.
