I am a chef, gardener, and organizer working in the worlds of restorative justice, food liberation, and re-homing with one another on Earth. I am the founder of Freedom Harvest (https://mindful-brilliance-unfurl.vercel.app/freedom-harvest), a PDX-based project that explores pathways for communities impacted by incarceration to build relationship with land, Earth-based food subsistence systems, and togethering for the purpose of liberation.
I am looking to generate landed connections with those of you out there on this dear Earth who share some common ground with me. Such ground could look like:
I am a generator of many small experiments, I love this Earth, I think people are amazing and hugely capable. I’m excited to explore all the ways we can generate a brilliant future, together!
Water! Ideally water rights to a riparian source, well is awesome too. Infrastructure (green/prop houses) is awesome, or resources/interest in construction. A place with trees, an orchard, a forest.
I've worked on two farms over the past 3 years, one a small-scale organic vegetable farm, the other an up and coming homestead farm that focused on grazing animals. I'm comfortable in the practical, hands-in farm basics, and love to work with the soil. I consider my skill-sets in farming to lean more in the direction of, relationship building, community care, resourcing and funding, planning/strategy.
Experiment in farm incubation models beyond production farming (and if production farming then leaning into a specialized/value added area).
Find home on land, build cohesion with land-mates, neighbors, local communities. Generate patterns for land-based subsistence that are accessible, Earth-aligned. Help to facilitate the easeful sharing of information and resources. Be outside.
Happy to camp during summer months, have a short-term goal to build a tiny house (on wheels perhaps!) that could be parked on land.
Curiosity, reciprocity, moving at the speed of trust. Sharing meals. Ensuring that resource infrastructures can support needs-meeting. Reverence for Earth.
To contact a land seeker, you must first create a land listing and have it approved by our staff. Thank you.
