Keely Curliss is a queer Nipmuc farmer located in MA. She is a member of the Eastern Woodlands Rematriation Collective. She serves on the board of the Northeast Farmers of Color Land Trust (NEFOC), and as a member of the leadership team of Rooted in Community. This is Keely’s 14th season farming, and second season managing Movement Ground Farm in Tiverton, RI. Farming can be deeply meaningful and fulfilling and demands so much from the mind, body, and soul. Often the time demand of this work leaves little to no space to process the stress, struggle, and trauma. For that reason, Keely is interested in ways that resources can be created, available, and trusted by folks who have historically and systemically been excluded from farmer support programs.
