Chasity Salvador


Sandstone Farm, located in our beloved home of Acoma Pueblo, was birthed from my heart and love for my family, my community, and our beloved seed, water, and plant relatives, by and for the hearts of young Pueblo women and girls. We focus on continuing the seed cultivating traditions of our Pueblo ways by growing almost all traditional Pueblo seeds, focusing on soil regeneration, comprehensive seedkeeping, and learning our dry-land farming traditions. We also focus on growing medicinal and edible plants and herbs used for community remedy making and as a way to give back to the plant relatives that give so much life to our community. This farm alternates each season in terms of what we grow, and is led by the needs of the community. This grant will be used to create a hoop house near our field to serve as a home for plant starts, tool storage, and a place of gathering for family and community who aspire to support each growing season. This grant will also support the expansion of our farm to be a place of growing vulnerable Pueblo heirloom seeds and growing large amounts of root and green vegetables for community distribution.
