The Black Farmers and Urban Gardeners Conference (BFUGC) connects growers, eaters and organizations across the country to nurture the health and well being of Black America and the environment as a whole. The first two BFUGCs drew hundreds of participants from as far as Michigan, South Carolina, California and Vermont. The BFUGC is a place to explore issues of race, class, health and food through panel discussions, workshops, films and conversations.
