Co-created by Ariel Reyes Antuan and Jess Reyes Barton in the midst of the pandemic, the Palenke Greens Initiative provides burlap sack gardens to people of African descent and other marginalized folks who are facing food insecurity. For Black History Month, we look into how the project began, where it’s headed, and how it feeds into “the Ubuntu spirit of communal self-reliance.”
