Black Futures Farm
Black Futures Farm is a community farm, staffed by volunteers and two resident farmers. We sit on 1.15 acres with 17 different fruit trees, vegetables, flowers, medicinal and cooking herbs. Our farm is located on the grounds of the Learning Gardens Lab at 60th and SE Duke in Portland, Oregon.
We are a group of Black identified/ Diasporic and Continental African people working together, growing food and community. Our aim is to implement the best methods of growing food, taking the best of what we can from our ancestral practices while being a part of innovation.
Black Futures Farm is a project of the Black Food Sovereignty Coalition, which is a nonprofit fiscally sponsored by Know Agenda Foundation. Please contact us at [email protected] to request EIN numbers.
This year we will produce vegetables, flowers and herbs. We are focusing on staple items, and a few specialty items such as greens, squashes and vegetables common in Africa and Asia.
We are a vegetable farm, so we have what you’d typically expect: Peas, Beans, Lettuce, Bok Choy, Greens, Tomatoes, Potatoes, Onions, Shallots, Corn, Radishes, Beets, Cucumbers, Melons, Squash, etc. This is our first year in operation so we don’t have any specialties yet. If there is something you’d like us to grow, please message us.
