This webcast seeks to address food insecurity by featuring the art and science of Black farming. We will focus on Pembroke Township, located within Kankakee County, because it is the largest and oldest (over 150 years) African-American agricultural community in Illinois. We bring together experts in farming, holistic health, multi-disciplinary art and community organizing to discuss innovative solutions around hunger in the U.S. Podcast guests will also discuss innovative programs at UIUC such as farm robots (FarmBots) and the Artificial Intelligence for Future Agricultural Resilience, Management, and Sustainability (AIFARMS).
