Black Soil

Our Better Nature is to reconnect Black Kentuckians to their legacy and heritage in agriculture. By bringing together urban families with rural and urban based Black farmers/growers/producers across the state, we help introduce opportunities in agriculture that promote self-sufficiency, encourage healthy living, and activate cooperative economics.

Our vision is to help foster a greater market share for Black farmers and producers as they provide healthy food options to a larger consumer base.
