Juneteenth, or June 19, 1865, was when ,"the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free...two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation". We're proud to be one of many black-run farms in South Carolina.⠀

Josephine moved from St. Louis, Missouri to Paris, France, where her career thrived. She was constantly discriminated against as a chorus girl. She starred in La Folie du Jour at the Follies-Bergère Theater. There, she became known for her costume of 16 bananas strung into a skirt. She starred in two movies in the early 1930s, Zou-Zou and Princesse Tam-Tam. ⠀
⠀
Josephine served France during World War II by performing for the troops, as an honorable correspondent for the French Resistance, and a sub-lieutenant in the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force. She was awarded the Medal of the Resistance with Rosette and named a Chevalier of the Legion of Honor by the French government for hard work and dedication. ⠀
⠀
Josephine revisited the United States during the ‘50s and ‘60s. When New York’s popular Stork Club refused her service, she engaged a head-on media battle with pro-segregation columnist Walter Winchell. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) named May 20 Josephine Baker Day in honor of her efforts. While she was fighting racism in her career, she was also battling it in her personal life. She adopted children of different ethnicities and religions to form "The Rainbow Tribe". She took the children with her cross-country, and arranged tours so visitors could  see how natural and happy they were.⠀

Germaine Jenkins, co-founder of Fresh Future Farm, grabs items off the shelves to help Lorenzo Sheppard, who is legally blind, fulfill his grocery list at her store in North Charleston. The urban farm and grocery store helps offset the struggle for many nearby residents of living in a food desert. “It’s the only place to shop,” said Sheppard, who comes to the store about four times a week. #northcharleston #southcarolina #urbanfarm #farming #food #grocery #neighborhood #freshfuturefarm #vegetables

Honored that #freshfuturefarm was featured as one of the Charleston #tinybusinesses in the Piccolo Spoleto show crafted by @connecktedtoo. They listened to us and added our goals of solar panels and incorporated our values into the farm replica🥰  Inspired and saddened at the same time. More pics and videos coming. THIS SHOW IS INCREDIBLE, Y'ALL👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 #art #artist #piccolospoleto #cannonstreet #charleston #charlestonsc #gentrification #tinyispowerful

The first FB live #gardening video is posted. Find tips on building container and nonconventional beds and making mushroom compost tea. Yesterday was the first of a series I'll host as I rebuild my home veggie garden. If you have any natural gardening questions you want answered, please let us know.

Our shady yard #homestead was the prototype for #freshfuturefarm. A low impact workout that afforded me time to grow delicious food, sit down on the front stoop and chit chat with the neighbors. We spent a couple hours outside tonight sheet mulching (that took 10 minutes) and carefully pulling the weeds from around our cactus plants.

Check us out tomorrow as we use all the tips I teach in our #gardeningclasses to restore my edible front yard in a way I can manage and enjoy around my busy work schedule.

Pictures from the last couple weeks that I've been meaning to share. Tracy and her mom visited all the way from Colorado and Virginia after reading the #foodandwine article, thanks again @turshen for the interview😉 Our awesome volunteer and #freshfuturefarm cheerleader Briana is heading up the road (as my mom would say). Best of luck lady. Enjoy all that yummy new cuisine!!! Taking a pic of the I26 drive to Columbia last Thursday to talk to yound people at the DJJ about our work. BTW, no one fertilizes those trees on the side of 'the I' and they look happy and healthy as heck - #foodforthought. Our blueberries are ALMOST ready, if this heat doesn't bake me on the bush... Finally, kiddos from the #chicoraelementary garden club visited yesterday and brought us some seeds🥰 We have more to share with our growing community. They were also mesmerized by @anikk_k mural work. Just as the family was mesmerized watching our brother @deljuanthechef on #chopped last night❤
