Using the north star as their guide, enslaved men, women and children fought their way to freedom.

We hope that through our work, we honor the stories and sacrifices of our ancestors. By reclaiming activism and growing food, we give the tools to foster resilience, growth and personal freedom.Follow us on social media to stay updated on all the event details:
