LexFarm Believes That Black Lives Matter
The LexFarm Board and Staff are angered and distraught over the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade and countless other Black lives lost as a result of our nation’s long-standing history of systemic racism and police violence.
LexFarm stands in support of all those demanding justice for Black lives.
We recognize there is much to be done. LexFarm is committed to addressing inclusivity in organic farming education, accessibility to local food, support of Black-owned businesses in our farmstand, and increasing the diversity of our board. We look forward to sharing our plan of action with the community in the near future.
We welcome members, customers, neighbors, and the community to join us in conversation, learning and action. This will be a lifelong commitment, and continuous work – just like stewarding this precious piece of land on which we gather.
