For the first time in Fields history, Wythe and Melissa interview four urban growers at once! We speak to the principles of H3irloom Food Group—Linda and Floyd Taliaferro, and David and Tonya Thomas—about their simultaneously innovative and tradition-inspired approach to cooking and growing, as well as their educational initiatives using agriculture.
Longtime collaborators with local farmers, the H3irloom Food Group is currently developing their own 68-acre farm, Gabriel Fields, just outside of Baltimore (in Baltimore County). Through growing and cooking, they’re connecting their culinary work to a tradition of land stewardship in the Mid-Atlantic that goes back to the arrival of enslaved Africans on Turtle Island/North America.
H3irloom uses delicious food, sourced locally, to help tell important stories about Black food traditions, especially in and around Baltimore. Join Melissa and Wythe for another powerful conversation about the roles that growing food plays in culture, both in and beyond the kitchen! And stay tuned as we catch up with H3irloom regarding their farm in the near future.
