As the veggies and flowers grow -- as we work in our bubble in the woods -- the world is being shaken up. Waking up a long sleeping people to stand up for equity with real anti-racist actions. Our eyes are wide open.
As a biracial cis male and white cis female farm partnership, our orientations to race and gender bias differ from one another. What we hold in common is our dedication to racial inclusion and equitable action. We are watching, learning, engaging. As individuals, as parents, as community members, and as a business, Jay and Jordan are working at defining and taking anti-racist actions. We are privately donating to community funds such as dontshootpdx and to BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) individuals who are working hard to educate America to the realities of the working racist system.
As farmers and ecologists we see our action centered in our ability to provide nutritious food for our community. In addition to our personal and communal anti-racist work, we have included an opportunity for you to contribute anything you can towards a CSA share for a local BIPOC family experiencing food insecurity to receive a weekly box of nutritious veggies and a flowers. This donation supports our farm and helps us create a more nutritious and stronger community today.
