Your gift helps transform our food system. Thank you!
From now until December 31, 25% of all funds raised will go towards the Ramapough Lenape Turtle Clan and their effort to start the Munsee Three Sisters Medicine Farm. Read a note from Chief Vincent Mann, head of the Turtle Clan:
We the peoples of the Ramapough Lenape Nation Turtle Clan are seeking assistance in creating a farm which will not only be utilized for sustenance, but also for educating our children and families in the traditional ways of our ancestors. Recovering our cultural ways and food sovereignty is of the highest importance. Due to the toxic waste that has been disposed of upon our community in Ringwood, NJ, we have lost the ability to hunt clean game animals and to gather traditional wild edibles as well as having loss the knowledge of our healing plants, and with that, the loss of language that is associated with the gathering of them.
It's our hope that through providing this resource, that our people will find it as a source of food sovereignty as well as an opportunity
to heal through cultural regeneration.....
