Buried Hxstories for BIPOC Youth

A new monthly series starting at People’s this Summer! Every third Wednesday of the month, Buried Hxstories for BIPOC youth brings kid-friendly lessons on ancestral wisdom of Black or African, Indigenous or Native, and Non-Black People of Color. In July, we will start this series with the buried hxstory of black and brown food growers. Come through as we bring a varied education on black and brown farming practices you may not have heard of, partnered with fun activities to really experience different perspectives to growing food brought to you by our ancestors. This class is specifically for elementary aged BIPOC youth and aims to give BIPOC youth ancestral knowledge they may not have received through traditional schooling. 

About the Facilitator

The class is brought to you by co-op worker Makayla, who has taught garden education and spent time at several farms in Costa Rica, Hawaii, and here in Portland.

People's Food Coop is committed to making our classes accessible to folks of all income levels and financial situations, while ensuring that our instructors are compensated fairly for their time, effort, expertise, and materials. If this class is interesting or useful to you but you can't swing the fee, please be in touch with us and we'll work something out. You can email for scholarship inquiries.

The Community Room is located on the 2nd floor up a flight of stairs. It is also accessible by elevator lift--just let a staff member know you need to use it and they will help you!

A Message from Makayla

Accessibility of this class for all BIPoC youth is important to me, which is my reasoning for a donation based class, but please be mindful about what is truly affordable and take into account the work and energy of a black community member that went into the creation of this class when checking out.

This class is free for BIPoC youth, but please reserve your space online. Recommended donations of $5-$15 are received with gratitude. Although this class is exclusively for BIPoC youth, white allies are strongly encouraged to donate; please visit the eventbrite page for this option.
