Moon Phase: Waning Moon
Sun Phase: before Winter Solstice
Pause to celebrate our 11 years of programming!
As founding steward I, kuwa jasiri Indomela (elle/ beauty), study wild foods, birth work, Seed stewardship, and liberatory medicine to tend my own family traumas. As an intersex, genderqueer, polysexual Ghanaian-Cubane/Taino my superpower is infiltrating privileged spaces, advocating and bringing about equity while marginalized folks rest and play.
Our grassroots initiative nourishes the mental, spiritual and physical wellbeing of genderqueer People Of Culture (Of Colour) while affirming our societal greatness.
Our zero waste collective began due to express interest from our community to solve their own problems with our BY US, FOR US model. Originally, in 2011, our priority was free herbal clinics and Indigenous Solidarity which grew to rural Seed libraries in 2013 then wildland and watershed restoration in 2016 which is now sprouting up as social advocacy. Learn more.
Over the last decade, our focus is accountability, trauma informed care, therapeutic techniques, cultural revitalization, intersectional diversity, rest, and play. We invite you to align with us now as we embark on our next chapter, shinning into a new Sun cycle (year), celebrating our eleventh year of service and deepening our commitment to community-centered care. In 2023 we are introducing our Birthwork team that ushers in the Age Of Abolition.
