Our mission is clear: to feed those impacted by food insecurity, while tackling the challenges of the climate crisis head-on. With love and care, we're cultivating a movement stewarded by our QTBIPOC community. From growing and sharing food to saving and exchanging seeds, and hosting empowering trainings and workshops, we're sowing seeds of change.
Food insecurity is a growing challenge nationwide. Economic and political obstacles, coupled with food deserts, leave many families vulnerable. Climate change worsens the situation, with extreme droughts and natural disasters disrupting food supplies. Our Queer-led Mutual Aid Farming emerged as a response to this crisis. Frontline communities deserve tangible pathways to a healthy future and safe spaces to thrive.
The Mutual Aid Farming is our solution to address food insecurity and build agriculture resilience. Through free food distribution and community farming, we foster connections in the high desert. Saving and banking seeds for new farms ensures long-term sustainability. Teaching skills to grow food in extreme conditions promotes resilience. With QTBIPOC stewardship, we nurture the movement for food sovereignty. Lastly, we preserve food knowledge through intergenerational conversations.
Together, we're building a sustainable mutual aid food system for frontline communities in New Mexico. We're creating a blueprint for folks to learn how to show up as guest land stewards on stolen lands and nourish our neighbors with vital food resources. Our project cultivates food and seeds, raises awareness on agricultural resiliency, and fosters a deep connection with the spaces we inhabit.
