Join us for a 10-14 day land-stewardship learning exchange in beautiful Tanzania, East Africa. We will build connections with farmers and land-stewards from across East Africa and the Diaspora while exploring cultural stewardship practices that cultivate resilience.

A group of 10-12 Black farmers will be selected to participate in this opportunity. The Black farmer exchange is for adults only.


We expect to release the application by July 2023.
