Help us teach the next generations!

For 25 years we talked about buying some land and growing our own food. But until 2 years ago, talk was all it was. It took a world-wide pandemic to shake us out of our comfort zone. We wondered if the food supply would change, if prices would start to go up, if we were safe. We worried about the next generation, if they were learning the things they needed to survive AND thrive, to be independent and self-sufficient. 

We became interested in discovering, preserving and teaching an almost forgotten way of life to younger generations, a traditional Cherokee life way. For thousands of years, the Cherokee managed to live in harmony with the land around them, enjoyed bountiful harvests, and built collaborative and mutually beneficial networks. Their way of life was highly sustainable and teaching children was a priority. The Cherokee knew and taught that each person’s time walking on this land is fleeting, and that we all have a responsibility to act as caretakers of this world and serve as teachers for the next generation. Earlier this year we incorporated as a 501c3 nonprofit, so that we could raise funds to provide this education free of charge to those who can’t afford to purchase it.
