On this episode of the Regenerative Rising Podcast – Elevating Stories, Activating Change, host Seleyn DeYarus sits down with Clarenda “Farmer Cee” Stanley, CEO of Green Heffa Farms, to chat about the challenges and triumphs of being a black woman in agriculture. Farmer Cee is a seventh-generation heritage farmer from the Black Belt region of Alabama and is currently farming hemp and other medicinal plants and herbs in North Carolina. She is the CEO and Founder of Green Heffa Farms, the first Black-owned farm to receive a B Corp certification in the United States.
We invite you to join Seleyn and Clarenda as they discuss the four “E”s (economic development, education, equity, and environment), the cost of being environmentally conscious, how to honor the rights and empowerment of all women, and the origin story of Gertrude the Black Widow Spider. Tune in via the link in our bio/below to learn about how Green Heffa Farms came to be, what a legitimate farmer looks like, and Farmer Cee’s words of encouragement to BIPOC folks who are interested in entering the agricultural space.
