*First and foremost, we uphold the needs and goals of the community we work with as the foundation of our programs.
*We advocate for refugees and immigrants to have the autonomy to decide how to re-create home. The farm provides a space for participants to maintain their culture of origin and to resist cultural assimilation in the ways they know best.
*We value equity in our food system by authentically working to include the farmers and consumers that represent our multi-cultural community.
*We uplift and support the adult and youth leadership that emerges within the refugee and immigrant community we work with.
*We strive to be intersectional in our work and recognize how cultural identity, ethnicity, class, gender and educational background must be considered in programming.
*We invest time in building accountable and trusting relationships with program participants in order to create meaningful grassroots change.
*We believe an abundance of resources can support multiple organizations and that shared efforts can lead to greater impact.
*We believe that stewardship of the land is inextricably linked to community health and must be upheld in our farming practices.
