Jovan Sage

In 2016 we first spoke with Dr. Kwesi deGraft-Hanson about The Weeping Time. This was the largest single sale of humans in American history, which took place in Savannah.  Since then, Dr. deGraft-Hanson has hosted commemoration ceremonies in Atlanta and Savannah. 

This week the Local Take speaks with food alchemist, Jovan Sage. Sage is co-owner of The Farmer and The Larder, a farm to table restaurant in Brunswick, Georgia, where she prepares fresh offerings along with educational components about the region's food history and the importance of eating seasonally. 

Jovan shares with us how the restaurant came to be a few years after a chance meeting between she and Chef Matthew Raiford at a food conference in Italy. The couple farms land that has been in the family for over 6 generations.
