I love helping out on farms and being with animals. I feel most like my true self in nature camping. I am most curious to learn about animal fat salves, wildcrafts and stationary.

The edits I see in the above paragraph are: "Harvesting from yard and around the neighbourhood" It should read: " Harvesting from the yard and around the neighborhood"
I participate in social justice movements by:
Working for a youth non profit organization in social justice work.
I show up to community events on social justice and People Of Color circles.
My partner and I have councils on being queer and on race as an interracial couple.
I also am starting my own VLOG about women of color in nature.
I am also working on a one woman show where I play a historical black woman and tell her story that has not been told and perform it it within my community center.
And some days holding my partners hand can feel like a movement in itself.
