Jìgìjìgì is an Afrikan-Centered podcast that seeks to encourage other Afrikans to learn more about growing plants, food, soil, and their soul.
We believe building a healthy soil builds a healthy soul so we share strategies for how to do both. To do both we ask two questions:
“How do you grow while you grow tomatoes, kale, collards, tomatoes, and melons?”
“Why do you think the healthiest soils are black?”
Expect episodes to contain wisdom, tips, and actionable advice from Black Farmers and other Afrikan Agriculturalists to “blacken” 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.
