    This episode comes from my notes after attending a lecture by Susan Godwin, the 2012 Nigerian Female Food Hero. A small holding farmer, she is one of the many women who make up the source of 70% of the food in Nigeria. Often without support from their local community. Though interviewing Susan would have been ideal, her whirlwind tour through the U.S. didn’t allow it. Instead, here is her background, struggles, and successes compiled from my notes when she spoke at Yeehaw Farm. A kind, generous, and congenial person, I am thankful for the time I got to spend hearing her story. May my second hand account do her life’s work a modicum of justice.
