This year, the Detroit Historical Museum honors the legacy of toil and resistance in the Black community through the lens of the urban agriculture movement.

African Americans have a unique relationship to land as a way of belonging and place-making. From the largely agrarian South to the industrial North, black Americans used gardens as a means to sustain and also to remember. Take part in a day-long exploration and celebration of this legacy with a panel discussion, craft activities, vendor marketplace and more!

1 – 2:30 pm: Panel discussion with Malik Yakini, founder of the Detroit Black Community Food Security Network (DBCFSN) and D-Town Farms, and Tepfirah Rushdan, Co-Director of Keep Growing Detroit, on the power of owning your own food pipeline.

12-5 pm: Join us for fun drop-in crafts and meet entrepreneurs from around the city in our annual markeplace.
