Session 290: Growing Foods At Home

The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible versions of ourselves.

Today I’m joined by internationally recognized urban farmer and food activist, Jamila Norman. Jamila or “Farmer J” is the founder of Patchwork City Farms, a 1.2 acre farm planted in downtown Atlanta. In our conversation Jamila spoke about the kind of foods to grow in your home with limited space, some of the key tools you’ll need to get started with gardening, what to pay attention to during the crop development process, and the rich and empowering history of Black folks stewarding the land.
