Natasha Bowens

Natasha is a writer, an activist and an urban farmer-in-training who thinks food justice stands at the center of many issues for minority and low-income communities. She left her job in youth advocacy in Washington D.C. to travel the country in search of organic and urban farms sprouting up in food-insecure communities. She is blogging about her adventures, her farmer training and the topic of race and class in the food movement at Brown.Girl.Farming. You can most often find her on a bus or train with her three essentials: backpack, journal, and bug spray.
