A feature piece on Little Jubba Central Maine Agrarian Commons, a 104-acre farm in Wales, Maine, that is owned by a collective of 200 Somali Bantu Mainers in partnership with the Agrarian Trust. The farmers will plant corn, squash, greens and other crops, and also plan to set aside space for cultural events and for a lawn for resting, an important part of the farmers' cultural heritage that has been difficult to observe in downtown Lewiston, where many of the farmers live. Little Jubba will help children connect to their Somali Bantu culture. Includes sidebar about the history of collectively owned farmland in the U.S. and the history of racial discrimination in farming in this country. Lavishly illustrated with photographs.
