Jìgìjìgì is an Afrikan-Centered Podcast that seeks to encourage other Afrikans to learn more about growing plants, food, soil, and their soul. We want to get our hands and minds dirty detailing the Afrikan relationship with the soil. We continually ask and answer two questions:
“How did you grow while you grew tomatoes, peppers, kale, and melons?”
“Why do you think the healthiest soils are black?”
Building healthy soil builds a healthy soul and we share stories on how to do both.
Expect episodes to contain wisdom, tips, and actionable advice from Afrikan Agriculturalists for how to improve yields, crop performance, and marketability thereby “blackening” your green-thumb.
A prominent elder in the DMV, Baba Oduno says, “There is no culture without Agriculture.” We find that to be very true here at Jìgìjìgì.
