“This is a portrait of Daniella Rodríguez of Siembra Tres Vidas, a farm in Puerto Rico. I’m a Puerto Rican Jew from New York who hasn’t been back on the island since I was a little girl, but I remember my abuelo cutting sugar cane for me, and the remnants of jibaro — peasant — life, and I wanted a picture that showed a strong woman of the land, the sort of woman who always made la isla verde green.” – Molly
Made for A Growing Culture
For thousands of years, farmers have provided humanity with sustenance and nutrition, developing creative and progressive techniques that work with nature, not against it.
Yet our society consistently overlooks and undervalues them in favor of a food system developed and promoted by corporations, not farmers.
Today we say: Enough. We can no longer participate in a system that denigrates farmers, their communities, and their products. Instead, we rise in solidarity with those who feed the world. We stand with farmers and everyone who contributes to a global food supply. And we will stand with them until they are recognized as the leaders they are and returned to their rightful place at the helm of agriculture.
