Heirloom Gardens Oral History Project

Faculty Leads: Tessa Lowinske Desmond and Hanna Garth

Collaborating Partners: Spelman College Food Studies Program, Ujamaa Cooperative Farming Alliance

The Heirloom Gardens Oral History Project is a collaboration among Princeton University, Spelman College, and the Ujamaa Cooperative Farming Alliance.  Through oral history, HGP documents stories of people who have been working to preserve Black and Indigenous seed and foodways.  HGP grows out of the work of The Seed Farm, particularly from the relationship between The Seed Farm and Ujamaa Cooperative Farming Alliance.
