Natasha Bowens on Whitewashing and Greenwashing

Natasha is a writer, food justice activist and a young farmer. She is the founder of The Color of Food, a new initiative that focuses on the intersection of race and food by raising the voices of farms and food work led by people of color.  This is done partly through the Color of Food Network Directory & Map, which highlights Black, Latino, Indigenous, Asian...farmers, urban gardeners, chefs, activists, food workers, health educators and more worldwide, and partly through multi-media documentary projects telling farmers’ stories and repainting the picture of food and agriculture for people of color. Natasha also writes the blog Brown.Girl.Farming and is currently farming outside of NYC, growing food for communities in the South Bronx and Dutchess County and serving as the farm's food justice and education coordinator.
