Small-Scale Sustainable Farm near Flagstaff, AZ

Small-Scale Sustainable Farm near Flagstaff, AZ

We tend kinship between land and people by growing and gathering food and by creating thriving places of refuge for human and other-than-human communities.

We’re moving to Alaska!

After deep dialogues with friends, elders, the land, and ourselves, we’ve decided to move to Homer, Alaska, on Sugpiaq & Dena’ina land, in the spring of 2023.

Flagstaff and the surrounding region will always be a dear home, the place where the three of us farmers began growing into the people we are today. And yet we deeply feel the weight of the climate, ecological, and economic, and housing crises push us northward to practice new and old ways of being in relation with land, together.

We’re working with a small group of friends to move up together, share resources and land, do community-oriented work, and co-create spaces of refuge, reciprocity, and resilience. In our new farm and our shared life, we aim to invite people to imagine and practice kinship-oriented ecological ways of being.

In the coming months, we’ll be sharing more about our long-term work—as a farm and a community—while we walk our communal path forward. We hope to invite others to support and participate online and in-person as we share this alternative path through creative work and storytelling during this transition.

While our farm is moving, we’ll be keeping in touch with folks through our collaborative, community-oriented work as part of Refugia Collective. We’re hoping to start up our new farm in Alaska in mid-2023. In the meantime, sign up for dispatches, updates, & events from our wider community crew!
