Agrarian Commons – Little Jubba Farms
The Agrarian Trust works to break down the barriers preventing new farmers from accessing and securing land by creating Agrarian Commons. The Agrarian Commons holds land parcels in trust and gives the power back to the farmer, rather than the landowner. Somalian refugees in Maine have struggled with land security and tenancy in since 2014, forced to move and recreate their farm systems multiple times before BCM’s own Beth Boepple helped launch Little Jubba Agrarian Commons, making it possible for Muhidin Libah and his community to secure and control farmland.
