Mission Statement:

The wild seed collective seeks to find creative ways to challenge the root causes and negative effects of white-supremacist-capitalist-patriarchy while mitigating our environmental impact through sustainable practices. Understanding the interconnection of class, race, gender, sex, age and ability as factors in the most destructive forms of oppression, it is our intention to develop a safe and productive space for resident members and people from the broader community by integrating a theory and practice guided by the principle that the personal is political.
