Seeking Land for a BIPOC Community land share


?

Land Seeker Description

My name is Jasmine, I currently work for Portland Public schools alongside studying herbal medicine. I am seeking a small plot of land to eventually own and cohabitate with like minded people in my community. I am interested in growing fruit, nuts, vegetables, herbs and flowers.  My vision is to get back to the land and provide a healing and safe place for BIPOC. The goal is to have more space to grow herbs so that I can expand my  small online apothecary, earth flower apothecary. With access to more land, and an abundant garden I would like to leave my day job to solely run my herbal business and vend herbal medicines, fruits, and veggies at local markets making organic and fresh produce more easily available to marginalized communities. Ideally looking for something 40-60 minutes outside of Portland, but open to other locations.
