Establishing a Regenerative Farm Incubator

Our work is to unlock markets that have excluded generations from economic opportunity. We partner with the black neighborhoods most targeted for marijuana related crime in NYC, and other cities in NY state, to recruit and match black artists, healers and entrepreneurs  to opportunities for to share equity and work in the burgeoning New York Market.

Incubator farms address barriers to beginning farmers, including access to land, capital, and credit, and opportunities to learn and develop skills in farmbusiness planning.

We are launching our first Black To The Land CBD Farm Apprenticeship Program this grow season. This opportunity will give selected social equity participants a rare opportunity to gain valuable cultivation experience in a burgeoning industry. Participants will learn regenerative, biodynamic, organic and/or carbon farming techniques while growing hemp and organic vegetables in the Hudson Valley. Land Justice is foundational to all justice. The Institute of Afrofuturist Ecology works to connect ecological wellness, social justice, equity and land resources.
