The Indiana Black Loam Conference, authored by Legacy Taste of the Garden, will embark on its second year of events focused on the needs of underserved Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) who are farmers, ranchers, producers and socially vulnerable communities.

Legacy Taste of the Garden LLC, People’s Cooperative Market, and their farming collaborators living across the state of Indiana remain committed and dedicated to building relationships, providing support, breaking down barriers to information, and creating access to resources and training for historically underserved Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) farmers, producers, ranchers and growers.
