Hajjah Glover

Hajjah Glover is an alumnus of the Sankofa Community Farm Youth Program. She graduated from Sankofa with plant knowledge, a connection to the land, and an embodiment of her African roots. She developed a new perspective of the value of food in her West Philadelphia community. Hajjah wondered, “Where is the good food in my community?” This question pushed Hajjah to start looking for solutions for black and brown communities. Her answer was to start a business that built and installed garden beds. Therefore, her neighbors were the ones in control of their food. Hajjah Glover is now the owner of Glover Gardens LLC. She has built and installed over 100 garden beds throughout Philadelphia. She helps to build sovereign communities and promote food justice through her work. She wants to be a part of the Philadelphia Food Policy Advisory Council because she knows the impact food has on black and brown communities throughout the world and wants to get “good food” to those who need it most.
