The Soul of Food: A Juneteenth Jubilee

This event is hosted in partnership with Deep Routes

Come cook with us in the garden in honor of Juneteenth! During this workshop we’ll get into the legacy of Juneteenth as well as self liberation efforts throughout the African diaspora, and learn about crops (e.g. hibiscus, field peas, and more) that have sustained Black peoples throughout the Southern U.S. and Caribbean. 

As we prepare and share a meal together we’ll reflect on the legacies and continued strides Black folks have made through self-determination and preservation of foodways. This session is a continuation of The Soul of Food, a hands-on Deep Routes workshop series honoring the foodways that connect plants, peoples, and lands across Afro-Indigenous diasporas.

NOTE: Registration is required for this workshop. ATTENDANCE WILL BE CAPPED AT 25 PEOPLE, after which anyone else who registers will automatically be added to a waitlist.
