Fishing to Feed 🎣

by Marley Johnson, Community Photographer in Resident

The last few months in 2020 has revealed many truths. Some that we were already aware of and some that might come shocking to others. Nevertheless, this is the time that WE must remember love is the answer to all this madness. If you’re like me, having a BIG heart sometimes feels as if it will be the death of me. I always find myself wanting to save everyone that I can, helping as much as possible, be a voice to those without a voice and etc.

Since meeting Marley Carter, late 2018, we’ve both expressed how important it is to get involved within our communities. Jay Kristoff once said “An avalanche starts with one pebble. A forest with one seed. And it takes one word to make the whole world stop and listen. All you need is the right one.” We might not have the resources or reach to save the world. However, if we can make even the SMALLEST change in the place we call home - that’s a start.

As of June (TSCxM) = The Sunny Collection x Misguided is committed and dedicated to - donating, providing, serving, educating, feeding, teaching, the people within our community.

When Misguided was founded in late 2018, the foundation was built off the love for music. The music will always be here, but there’s more to our lifestyle than music. Misguided is a lifestyle full of culture ranging from - music, art, culinary, fashion, philanthropy, agriculture, social activism, financial literacy, and visual art. All with the hopes of growing and expanding more. As we continue to build we couldn’t help but notice that our platform began to grow. (TSCxM) is committed to using our platform to uplift and serve our community in any way that we can.

Starting July 26th, 2020, (TSCxM) will be feeding those in our communities in need of a home cooked Sunday dinner. Founder of The Sunny Collection, Marley Carter is recruiting 10 - 15 young men who are available the last Saturday of each month to reel in enough fish to prepare 100 meals (goal).

We're glad you're here for the Black Soil experience! These year-round events include Farm Tours, Farm to Table Dinners and Off-Season Workshops where you are connected Kentucky's black farmers/growers/producers. Black Soil events allow attendees to celebrate and educate themselves on the narratives, experience, and expertise of our partner black farmers.

Representing 1.4% of the primary farm operators in the state, black farmers account for less than 600 of the more than 76,000 agricultural operations in Kentucky.

The mission of Black Soil: Our Better Nature is to reconnect black Kentuckians to their legacy and heritage in agriculture.

By bringing together urban families with rural and urban-based black farmers/growers/producers across the state, we help introduce opportunities in agriculture that promote self-sufficiency, encourage healthy living, and activate cooperative economics.

Our vision is to help foster a greater market share for black farmers and producers as they provide healthy food options to a larger consumer base.
