Our approach

Place-based:

As farmers, we have learned from the land. We prioritize rural communities in an effort to keep people in community, to protect indigenous knowledge, and to nurture rootedness and good stewardship for future generations.

Faith-inspired:

As Christians, we are called to love our neighbors. We seek to partner with visionary leaders who use their faith to inspire a mindset change in community, responding to God’s call to service and justice.

Healing-centered:

As practitioners, we sit with people in their brokenness. We prioritize grassroots initiatives that rise up from communities marked by migration, violence, and exclusion to promote healing and reconciliation.
