Our Purpose

We dream of a place to call home, a working farm with a learning center and museum. For the Koasek people, our ability to address the chronic hunger facing far too many of us is tied to controlling our own food choices by teaching our citizens of all ages how to organically grow our traditional foods from seed to harvest, how to cook and preserve them, and to recognize the importance of food as medicine.
