Podcast Episode 93
We all hear that we should “eat more vegetables.” But what if you don’t actually have access to them? What can be done about this? Join us for a conversation with pioneers, Dr. Robert Jeffrey and Brione Scott from Clean Greens, a market and farm working to bring more produce to black and brown communities.
IN THIS EPISODE WE’LL COVER SOME OF THESE QUESTIONS:

- How does food play a role in social justice?
- What role does spirituality play in our relationship to food?
- What’s it like to get your hands in the dirt?
