Queer Women of Color's Land Seed Fund

Fundraising opportunity in Gloria's memory for Queer Women's Land in Southern Oregon!

We are fundraising to continue stewarding the 24 acre community land known as *Womanshare*, and evolve it into NativeWomanshare to center a community of Queer Native, Latinx, Black and Women of Color.

We are so grateful for all of the help and support received so far! ❤︎

Because dear Gloria Heredia (recent Womanshare owner and long-time womyn's community member) called these 60 acres in Oregon home for many years, loved all trees and things nature, and was a Latina-Mexican-American woman by blood, we like to think that she would have appreciated where Womanshare is headed now, specifically honoring Queer women of color with a healing utopia. With the donations, we will plant a tree on the land in Gloria Heredia's  honorable memory, as well as create photography and story altars in the main house to honor Womanshare's varied herstory. We are currently looking for suggestions for a tree Gloria would have prefered from the Tribute Store, as well as photos of Gloria and other women to frame and feature in our altars. 

The donations will also help us:
- make necessary repairs to existing cabins,
- build new structures such as our brand new 8' garden fence,
- heal and protect the land with Indigenous remediation,
- continue to grow food and medicine from our gardens,
- and continue to offer much-needed belonging, community space, and wildfire/COVID aid to the diverse family of Queer Women in Southern Oregon

Thank you for all of your support. This is how we build community.
This is how we take care of ourselves and each other, come rain or shine.

Thank you for helping us Queer Women of Color create many more generations of safe-space at Womanshare,

With Gloria in our hearts, and love and ancestral healing for us all,

NATIVEWOMANSHARE in Oregon
