In the "Greatest Garden in the World" restoration of Black Agriculture as the foundation of Black Culture is poised for job creation, career advancement and community economic development. The cultural transformation within United States Department of Agriculture and a new reality at the California Department of Food and Agriculture warrants a new approach for Black Agriculture farmers and ranchers. Farm to Fork activities that demonstrate culturally appropriate events and ethnic specialty crops will help open an new way forward, healing what is hurting our communities. Farmers Markets, home delivery of produce boxes and most importantly Black Churches demonstrating the "faith to farm" will lead the way to better diet related health outcomes.
