Over the summer of 2010, a crew from the public radio show, The Promised Land, visited North Lawndale to produce a show about Sweet Beginnings, LLC and its CEO, Brenda Palms Barber. The host of The Promised Land is none other than Majora Carter, founder of Sustainable South Bronx, a pioneering organization in the fields of green collar job training and environmental justice advocacy. Sweet Beginnings, LLC was honored to host a visit by such a distinguished guest and prominent activist concerned with urban sustainability. During their visit, Majora Carter and the crew from The Promised Land spent three days with our CEO and the Sweet Beginnings team, venturing out to see the hives in our apiary, witnessing the production of our honey-based skincare products, and participating in a product demonstration at a Chicago Whole Foods Market.
