82. Urban Farming for the People w. Jessey Njau (Zawadi Farm)


In this episode, Mexie talks with Jessey Njau, a community-centred urban farmer in Toronto who founded Zawadi Farm. Jessey talks about his journey from his soul-sucking job in tech to his life-giving urban farm project, the importance of community-driven food systems founded on reciprocity and mutual aid, and the possibilities for transforming cityscapes into productive and generative spaces. Urban food security is wildly important, especially as the climate crisis advances. Jessey’s passion and commitment are contagious, and he leaves listeners with advice on how to get involved in local food systems.
