Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!

Today in homestead Black History, I’d like to introduce you to Tammy Gray-Steele. Tammy is the founder of the National Women In Agriculture Association. This association’s mission is “to save lives and eliminate poverty by increasing the availability of fresh, locally grown foods while expanding economic opportunities.”

National Women In Agriculture Association (NWIAA) was founded and established in February 2008 by Ms. Tammy Gray-Steele; who is the Executive Director.  The organization is headquartered in Oklahoma City, OK.  NWIAA is an agriculture outreach, fueled by sisterhood and diversity.  NWIAA believes rural minority women have been often neglected; the lack of resources has stagnated rural development.  NWIAA is the first minority woman-owned and operated organization that provides innovative outreach education that attracts and sustains current and future generations with its innovative, spiritual, and USDA certified education techniques.  The NWIAA Mississippi Chapter was established in July 2011.  The NWIAA Alabama Chapter was established in August 2011.​

Great things are achieved when adequate resources are coupled with energy, initiative, and perseverance of women in rural and urban communities.

Ms. Steele’s passion to provide the next generation in rural and urban, underserved communities throughout the United States of America, and eventually abroad. NWIAA has attracted local and national attention. Other chapter states include Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Michigan, Oklahoma, (Men In Agriculture, Youth, Native American, and Veteran chapters).  Proposed chapters that are being established are in North Carolina, Kansas, and California and others are pending.

Now on to the hop…

Homestead Blog Hop will take place every Wednesday and is for all things homesteading: real food recipes, farm animals, crafts, DIY, how-to’s, gardening, anything from-scratch, natural home/health, self-sufficiency, self-reliance, natural remedies, essential oils, & more! Basically anything related to homesteading.
