Reclaim MLK

#ReclaimMLK 2nd Annual Day of Service - Blacker the Berry & Greens Community Garden Day

🧔🏿‍♂️ “Everybody can be great because everybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace, a soul generated by love.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.
🎉 Welcome to 2024 where
- rent is even higher then last year,
- SMUD and PG&E are through the roof,
- and it has become harder and harder for the middle, low, and no income class to keep a roof over our heads and food in our kitchens (if we have kitchens).
♥️ We created this garden as a means to create relief in Sacramento's Black community.
🥬 Access to free fruits, veggies, herbs, and nuts allow folks to pay their rent and their bills, cover gas to get to work/school, and if we are lucky...invest in self care.
🧔🏿‍♂️ “I have the audacity to believe,” he exclaimed, “that people everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education, and culture for their minds and dignity, equality and freedom for their spirits.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.
📢 Last year was the first year we decided to not march and instead to come together to help grow food for the community. It was a hit so we are making this tradition. Dr. Martin Luther King would have wanted the people to be able to eat!
🙍🏾‍♀️ "You can’t have a revolution if you can’t feed the people." - Laila Aziz
🧔🏿‍♂️ In the spirit of Martin Luther King...
- This garden is not government funded
- This garden is completely built and maintained by the people
- This garden provides absolutely free food to Black folks in Sacramento regardless of employment, or access to other resources.
- This garden is intentionally in a historically Black yet heavily gentrified community.
