Nyema Clark bustles around her Beacon Hill farm, checking on spring growth, weeding and planting, keeping an eye on her many chickens. Every once in a while, she walks across the way to the Black Power Epicenter where her office is. In a room near her office, Clark is growing starts beside windows, atop tables and stacked on shelves. The room is filled with seedlings she calls “her babies.” Out back, behind the center, Clark lifts the lid on her large compost bin, turns the compost with a shovel, points out the happy worms and demonstrates how it does not smell bad (which means it is good).
