We envision a world in which every person can access their right to food that benefits their health, community, and environment.
To advance our vision, we work in collaboration with communities to develop and expand access to local, sustainably grown food.
We carry out this mission through three core pillars:
We Grow Food Locally and Sustainably
We grow culturally relevant food with and for our local community through sustainable practices.
We facilitate hands-on educational programming that equips participants with the skills and resources to grow food sustainably and work towards leading a healthier life.
We Build Community
We use our farms as community building spaces and forge relationships with local residents through shared space, events, and good food.
Community – We come together through an environment welcoming and inclusive to all, working together toward a shared mission, and embracing our interconnectedness.
Equity – We work from a foundation of justice, with a focus on anti-oppression, to engage with power in a way that addresses systemic and structural inequities that are operating within and between the individual, group, organizational, and institutional levels.
Transparency – We believe in showing what we claim we are by working together with respectful, open, and honest communication.
Collaboration – We use nonhierarchical structures to disrupt traditional power dynamics and equitably consider everyone’s insight as unique, meaningful, and necessary.
Regeneration – We expand our potential by nourishing the spiritual, mental, and physical wellness of nature, community, and individuals. We are working towards sustainability now and seven generations ahead by centering adaptability, resilience, and healing.
Joy – We engage with each other and the land from a place of wonder and delight, always celebrating the abundance of life and the opportunity to care for each other and the land communally.
