MISSION

 

As an intentional learning community our mission is to cultivate regenerative technologies for BIPOC women, girls, and LGBTQI+ gender expansive people towards:

  • Climate Resilience

  • Food Security

  • Economic Advancement

  • Healing Justice

We create safe and brave spaces centering trauma-informed care.

There is limited funding and programming to eradicate gender-based violence (GBV) against Black Indigenous women, girls, and LBTQIX communities in Jamaica. Complicit rape and violence touches 62% of women and girls in Jamaica, which is 12% higher than the global average.

The Caribbean region is increasingly susceptible to environmental emergencies that are ignored. Black Indigenous women and  gender expansive people are the most vulnerable and own less than 10% of land in Jamaica. Government bodies are not yet instituting necessary policies for effecting changes.

ENVIRONEMENTAL BIODIVERSITY

We are sharing tools to mitigate hazardous environmental events, and find adaptive solutions by providing trainings to the most susceptible; in order to combat the effects on their own terms in ways that work in collaboration with the land’s natural bioprocesses.

Check out our Solidarity R.O.O.T.S. Permaculture Design Certification Course - a collaboration with R.O.O.T.S PDC coming up in January 2024.

REGENERATIVE FARMING

We are rematriating 12.5 acres of diverse mature moist tropical forest, St. Ann parish (at the border of St. Mary) through organic soil regeneration, agroforestry, watershed management, natural and organic energy inputs, and food security distribution systems that can provide sustained social economic advantages.

By keeping our farm organic, through restoring our soils, we deepen our connection the micro-organisms and mycelium networks to grow the best foods without toxic chemicals.

HEALING JUSTICE

We are intervening on behalf of personal and collective revitalization and redemption, through on-call trauma informed emotional-somatic care. We center indigenous Taino, Maroon, Afrakan, and Rastafarian rootwork in our ceremonies, coaching, consultation, cultivation, and conferences.

Healing Justice is necessary to the circle of wellbeing that is cultivated by disrupting toxic patriarchal and colonial regimes with radical authenticity and transparency to the pain grief, and trauma our communities have been living through. 

Ocean

As a network of BIPOC gender expansive peoples and accomplices, we envision opportunities for emotional safety, mutual support, solidarity economics, and inclusiveness for all aspects of life on planet earth.

Our 
Story

"Every Mickle Mek a Muckle" 

Jamaican proverb speaks to the impact

that small things, when combined, one by one, can have a significant effect on the whole.

Our movement is 100% community funded.  Since 2015, we have been growing radical feminist solutions alongside women survivors of gender based violence (GBV) in Jamaica.

In 2019, we launched our first online fundrazr campaign to acquire and rematriate land essential to moving our communities into re-earthing, be-birthing, rewilding, and re-skilling towards our greatest potential.  We are so grateful to the magnificent stewards who are part of this vision that began with a tiny seed. 

Join us in building a more inclusive, safer, kinder Jamaica Caribbean, and world.
