We Are Seeds: Land, Meaning, and Money

  • Culture Mill Lab 1616 Jordan Drive Saxapahaw, NC, 27340 United States (map)

Please join RAFI and the Saxapahaw Social Justice Exchange for the fourth talk in the Equity at the Table Speaker Series - We are Seeds: Land, Meaning, and Money. The talk will be delivered by Vanessa Jackson. This event is a collaboration between RAFI and the Saxapahaw Social Justice Exchange.

What impact does lack of money have on our emotional well-being? 

What role does land and farming have in contributing to fiscal trauma, in the past and still today? 

In her talk, Ms. Jackson will explore these questions by examining what meaning working the land has and the fiscal trauma which emerges from the financial struggle to make a living or feed oneself. Participants will engage in conversations about how money shapes their lives and discuss tools for how to address and heal the emotional impacts of ancestral fiscal trauma. Ms. Jackson is a licensed clinical social worker, Soul Doula and owner of Healing Circles, Inc., a healing practice based in Atlanta, GA. 

RAFI will host the Equity at the Table Speaker Series in locations across North Carolina from March through August 2018. The series is designed for people who are working in the intersection of equity and food security and for those with the desire to think more critically about equity in their work and volunteerism. RAFI invites people of faith, farmers, activists, and journalists to come hear these perspectives.
