Seeking creative partnerships in landed enterprises: 1-X acres within a 70 mile radius of Portland


Land Seeker Description

Hello all!

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 (, 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:

  • Exploring land-based enterprises beyond crop production that focus on bringing people to land to generate shareable resources and engender connection and agency with one another and Earth.
  • Butchery, animal husbandry: I’m looking to expand my practical skills in butchering, meat processing, etc. I have lots of curiosity around true nose-to-tail processing, and how to bring new (or old/traditional!) and creative products to market as a result of the practice.
  • Bees: love bees, love honey. Have two urban hives in Portland and excitement to learn more.
  • True farm-table private cheffing enterprise that doubles as mutual aid.
  • Many many more ideas!

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!


What features of the property are essential?

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.

Describe your farming experience

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.

Are you currently farming?


What are your short term goals for the land

Experiment in farm incubation models beyond production farming (and if production farming then leaning into a specialized/value added area).

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.
