Martin Acres is a seventh generation black-owned family farm in the Rhodes Chapel Community of Greenville, KY. Obiora and Irucka Ajani Embry of the sixth generation have formed businesses that have a focus on growing food and have been leasing land on the family farm since 2013. Our newly formed partnership through our respective businesses, EConsulting (tm) and EcoC^2S, is Getting Back to Nature.

We are creating an edible forest garden ecosystem on fallow grazing land. We are making do with what we have on the farm--borrowed from some of the groundbreaking work of Dr. George W. Carver--in an effort to develop a system that will produce really good soil. Soil is the most important thing for plant health and vitality and the rest can fall into place. Some of the diverse tools that we are using include the following: native plants, cover crops, various rock powders, fungi, biointensive planting, biodynamics, but most importantly L-O-V-E.
