Liberation Farms promotes "food justice, community building, and education in the form of inter-cultural and inter-generational exchange and reciprocal learning of farming traditions." Working together, Somali Bantu farmers in Lewiston, Maine, sell crops to food pantries, shelters and schools. Their story was recently featured in the Boston Globe.
