Our mission is to spread the wisdom of Seeds through tending the wounds of
People Of Heritage (Of Colour) and their land with our programs since 2011.
Our vision is to bring People Of Heritage back into harmony with the Planet through our relationships to Self, our Ancestry, Nature and each other.
We seek to increase and sustain accessible wellness services and education to People Of Heritage in Nucchu Territory, ‘Colorado’ with our nature based lifestyles approach, adapted from Indigenous cultures, which promotes leadership, respect, accountability, mutual aide, creativity, and cultural revitalization.
Through such initiatives as artistic writing, Ancestral gardening, Seed stewardship, affinity gatherings, apprenticeships, celebrations, indigenous foods, theatre, educational literature and illustrations (zines) we aim to assist our underrepresented community in sovereign-self-realization. Over the last decade, our focus is trauma informed care, therapeutic techniques, cultural significance, intersectional diversity, and play. Our zero waste grassroots organization affirms, networks, advocates for and shares plant knowledge with our marginalized population.
Our offerings are by and for People of Heritage, genderqueer, and low-income members of this community, and their Allies. All our offerings are ethically sourced, given freely, on a sliding scale, and/or trade based.
People of Heritage have family lineage originating from Afrika, the Middle East, Asia, South America, Turtle Island, and all other non-European descendants. Also known as People Of Colour and/or mixed folks.
