The Kawamoto - Wipala farm transition team is formed by Ana Galvis and Brent Walker, two human beings that have dedicated their lives and professional careers to learn and practice the skills to build a more sustainable relationship with their communities and environments. Brent and Ana have the determined and very productive support of their communities and families, the Kawamoto family and institutions such as the Jefferson County Land Trust and the Jefferson LandWorks . We plan to use the fund to crystallize this vision.
The process began in September 2021 when we responded to a call for proposals published by the Jefferson Land Trust in Washington State. We submitted a letter of interest on behalf of our collective project and after a long process that included multiple interviews and the development of an entire proposal, we are thrilled to announce that our proposal was selected, accepted and thank you to the decided support of family, friends and the beloved community we are in the farm, working hard to cyrstallize the vision

5. Forest Management
What is our mission and vision?
To not take a minute of life for granted; not extracting from life that which we think we need or deserve – but celebrating, through creative action and loving relating, the beauty and potential around us by maintaining and producing a quality organic sustainable environment where food and people can grow. As an intentional community, we aim to express that which we see in our mind’s eye whilst encouraging others to be more self actualized, think more universally and choose life affirming activities which take care of the Self, Earth- Pachamama and generations to come.
• We will produce food, fruits, flowers, and seeds for ourselves and our close community
• We will have an economically viable business based on producing goods and services that support conservation and regeneration of natural resources and holistic health of our surrounding community
• We will be running a locally-recognized apprenticeship program in Agroecology and Food Justice
• We will have infrastructure fully developed to have a thriving food forest and a functional management plan that maximizes production in our greenhouses and production fields.
• We will have a team of well trained people in sustainable food systems that will contribute to maintain a healthy food system in the farm and with the ability to start their own food system
When this vision crystallizes the beloved community is welcome to visit!
YOUR SUPPORT IS NEEDED AND VALUED. THANK YOU!
