Project: a consistent community of support for foster youth, utilizing nature as the main connector, healer, and space of learning.

Audience: children and youth who have been separated from one or both parents due to cycles of systemic oppression.

“The huge long term goal: Radical community based support for foster youth, including but not limited to: residence programs, alternatives to the traditional “foster parent,” summer and yearlong outdoor education programming based in healing in nature, alternative schooling, farming education programs that help feed the community and keep it autonomous and self reliant, youth mentorship, and re-entry support (including housing and employment) for parents”
