NESAWG embarks on a new chapter in 2023
See how Jason’s organic farm inspires our own change!
NESAWG interviewed Karla Nicholson, Executive Director of Haymarket People’s Fund, a New England-based grant making foundation that went through a deep anti-racism transformation involving a multi-year process that started in the late 1990s, took shape in the early 2000s, and is still ongoing.
NESAWG is focusing on our Racial Equity-focused Organizational & Regional Transformation Work. Learn more about that process and how we are framing the next steps!
In January 2022, a legacy project that culminated in a report and webinar was presented to the NESAWG community and met with backlash for failing to center BIPOC perspectives and anti-racist analyses. In April, NESAWG held a network conversation about growth, lessons learned and future building. Read the recap here!
This month we chatted with Pollinator Pathway Board Member, Louise Washer to learn more about her work and the importance of pollinator gardens.
As we all know, the Northeast has been hit with extreme high temperatures, much like other areas of the country, of Europe, and of the entire world. Farmers, growers, animals, plants- we are all feeling it. Sadly, this might result in “heatflation” - a further rise in food prices due to heat, drought, wildfires, bodies of water drying up, pest invasion, and entire crop production being severely compromised.
On April 2022, Lakota Chief Arvol Looking Horse issued a call to all peoples and all faiths around the globe to come in unity for the protection and healing of Mother Earth. Narragansett Indian Tribal Elders, in partnership with Native Green, echoed that call and held a sunrise and a sunset ceremony by the Ocean on January 21st on unceded territory in what is now known as the state of Rhode Island. NESAWG interviewed Bella Noka, Narragansett Tribal Elder.
