A community farm in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. By blending access to fresh food, skill-development, socialization, and art into one location, Baton Roots brings an opportunity for our community to learn best practices in sustainable agriculture on an urban farm.
The Indian Bayou Food Forest began in 2018 during the struggle, led by indigenous women, against the Bayou Bridge Pipeline in so-called Louisiana. Water protectors set up camp and defended an 11-acre property from encroachment by the pipeline company, forcing them to re-route the pipeline around them, and carrying out over a hundred disruptions of construction elsewhere on the route. After the pipeline was completed in early 2019, water protectors shifted gears, from fighting against the systems that are destroying the Earth, to working to grow and build systems to heal the Earth and sustain life.
The Indigenous Environmental Network
A network formed by grassroots Indigenous peoples and individuals to address environmental and economic justice issues (EJ). IEN’s activities include building the capacity of Indigenous communities and tribal governments to develop mechanisms to protect sacred sites, land, water, air, natural resources, health of both people and all living things, and to build economically sustainable communities.
