Woven Roots Farm: Hand Scale Farming and Community Care

July 29 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Situated on 10 acres, our farm has 2.5 acres in cultivation in a permanent bed, hand-scale farming system. This system is managed by a dynamic team of 10 farmers that grow over 70 different crops throughout the year. Our produce, herbs, and flowers connect with over 250 families annually, mostly through our low/no-cost solidarity share program. This visit will provide an overview of our farming practices and how our work has evolved over the last two decades in response to our community.

Woven Roots Farm is a traditional, hand-scale vegetable farm, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program, and education center located on unceded Mohican homelands in the so-called southern Berkshire hills of western Massachusetts. Through a deep relationship with the land and one another, we commit to feeding, educating, and empowering our community members by co-creating equitable pathways to become healthier individuals, ethical growers, and caretakers of the earth and one another.

We celebrate that agriculture itself is rooted in the long-standing cultural practices within communities of Indigenous people, people of color, and immigrants. We acknowledge that the US was built on stolen land and that all US systems are built on the stolen labor of Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian, and other people of color.

Our agricultural practices are centered in the ancestral ways of acknowledging nature as a part of us, just as much as we are a part of nature. We recognize the interconnectedness of all life—soil, plants, microbes, insects, and animals. We embrace these connections and seek to enhance them, not to disturb them. In direct opposition to colonized agriculture, we move through a space of reciprocity that prioritizes our responsibility as land stewards and caregivers. Click here for more information.
