Follow the drinking gourd

Our logo was inspired by the legacy of the drinking gourd. “Follow the drinkin gourd” was a song used by conductors of the underground railroad to guide slaves to freedom using the big dipper, or in African culture, the imagery of the drinking gourd. Using the north star as their guide, enslaved men, women and children fought their way to freedom. We hope that through our work, we honor the stories and sacrifices of our ancestors. By reclaiming activism and growing food, we give the tools to foster resilience, growth and personal freedom.
