Malcolm Steele our Urban Gardener expert.

I was born and raised in Fort. Lauderdale, FL. I grew up in my fathers Commercial landscaping business W.S. Sod & Landscaping. As a kid I played in the soil, and I also worked. I learned the value of hard work as an 8 year old, and by the time I was 10 I was operating my father’s tractors, And even driving his work trucks around the nursery when he was not looking. I would find such a thrill in unloading the sod trucks with the tractors as they pulled in and out of my fathers landscaping and plant nursery. As I got older I wonder away from my roots... I became infatuated with exotic dancers on poles.. that’s right I wanted to own a strip club. I played football thought that was my calling. I was decent enough to earn a couple of division 3 scholarships, but I decided not to take any of them.. I went on to the Great Jackson State University. Where I Majored in Entrepreneurship/Management. I was supposed to take over my fathers business but I instead ended up going into the United States Navy!!! Where I served for 7 years. During Covid I found my love for plants and nature again... I discovered that the garden had so much ability to heal in so many ways!!! Gardening gave me a new perspective on life!!! And it gave me a energy I had never felt before!!! I started up a small mini farm called Big Steele Farm!!! Big Steele farm offers garden bed design services, garden furniture service and gardening consultant services!!! We also volunteer in gardens around the community. I also use some of the herbs that grows wildly through the farm (Burning Herbs) to help people heal. I have help many people heal from ailments such as covid 19, flu, fibroids, pain relief from arthritis and sciatica pain. The next big move for the farm and herbal company is getting into the cannabis industry.... the name Big Steele I had been carrying around since high school!!!! it was actually Big Steele the Real, than Big Steele Inc to Big Steele The Urban Gardner!!! Now it’s Big Steele Farm!!!!

Ok Afrikans we need your help.

We as of right now do everything you see out of our own pockets. Its for the love and a passion for our people. We know everyone may not have the time to come out and we don't expect big money . We can all do a little and move a lot. We are those can to donate 9.00. Why 9 dollars you say? That's how much this bag of soil cost. If we can get all of our friends and supporters to purchase just 1 bag of soil we can put gardens all over the Tampa Bay Area..We can all eat off of our own land from our own hands... We can all be the change we want to see!!

"Savi Horne now leads the North Carolina–based nonprofit legal services organization, which helps Black farmers—historically stymied by racism in policy and in acquiring loans or property—in such actions as writing wills, incorporating businesses, and managing land or lending disputes with the government, banks, or neighbors. The work has taken her into major policy discussions; she participated in a joint effort, for instance, that resulted in U.S. Department of Agriculture funding to resolve land titles for those who inherit “heirs’ property” without the benefit and clarity of a will."
Read more about the amazing work of (our very own) Mama Savi Horne of Land Loss Prevention Project who has played an integral role in the stewardship of NBFJA and supporting the land, lives and legacies of Black farmers.
