About

WILDSEED Community Farm & Healing Village is a space to actively experience the change we devote our lives to, with each other as co-creators of our present reality. We are descendants of legacies of deep division and trauma, and devote ourselves to cultivating collaborative, reciprocal relationships with each other and this magnificent land as a mechanism of resilience, agency, and intergenerational accountability.

Surrounded by mountains and adjacent to a state forest, WILDSEED is situated on 181 acres of land and water in the mid-Hudson Valley. We are a collective of people committed to stewarding this incredible resource as a permanent safe space for the sustenance and strength of our movement community, and a site of belonging for people historically disenfranchised from land. We are a community by and for Black, Indigenous and People of Color, queer and trans folks, farmers, artists, activists, healers on the frontlines of state violence and environmental injustice.

Our collective work is guided by the following core principles:

  1. Embodying the World We Dream Of
  2. Healing Present and Ancestral Trauma
  3. Confronting Institutional, Interpersonal, and Internalized Oppression
  4. Ecological Guidance & Reverence for the Earth
  5. Dignity & Self Determination
  6. Communal Intimacy & Interdependence
  7. Radical Imagination & Courageous Artistry
  8. Liberatory Economics
  9. Transformative & Restorative Justice
  10. Accessibility & Inclusivity
  11. Movement Building & Education
  12. Intergenerational Responsibility
