Healing Springs Farmacy MS’s Vegetable Fest

November 30 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

On the 29th ROBE – reaching our brothers everywhere- will be visiting Jordan’s Barbershop and Super Cutz to chop it up with men on the subject of breastfeeding. I’m hoping to host a vegan dinner for them later in the evening on the 29th but lack sponsorship at this time.

11/30/2019 is the big day! Andre “Tiny” Rush will prepare vegan cooking demos, Cindy Ayers will discuss entrepreneurship opportunities in agriculture, ROBE and ROSE -reaching our sisters everywhere- will speak on the state of black breastfeeding and the importance of our return to breastfeeding. Joe Tutt from Crooked Fork Farms will grace the audience with a breakdown on farm economics from a square foot approach verses a traditional acreage standpoint. Jerry Jenkins from Hasan Drums along with Jeremy Jenkins will intrigue us with their artistic expression using drums and words to tell African stories.

Pusha of Oyo Herbals will discuss hair, herbs, and happiness. Prof. Phillip Gillon will give a discussion around current hemp legislation and much more! There will be vegan chefs, group yoga sessions, mental health talks, and other vendors.

Proceeds from the event fund KidzCafe-a program that helps those in poverty situations rethink their circumstances daily. The children in the KidzCafe program learn to become self sufficient due to project based learning skills acquired therein. We teach children the importance of land, soil, and the earth. We then teach farming and allow them to grow their own fruit and vegetables. When ready, they harvest the gardens and prepare the harvest for CSA delivery or prepare meals for those community members with preventable diseases.
