Yahdi's Farm Dream

Hey faml! Thank you for taking the time to read this. It’s been a long journey to recognize that community support caries us further than struggling alone. I am open and ready to receive support as it flows to me :)


My name is Yahdi! I’m a queer Gender Non-Confirming Black human starting my farm journey on a ¼ of land just out side so called Chicago, IL! My dream is to build a farm that centers accessibility and active healing in relationship with the Land. We create spaces for people who are pushed to the shadows to shine in the light. Together we re-image better futures beyond the scope of perceived limitations. 


The farm is called Unbound Growing Community Cooperative (UGCC).  We care for mushrooms, Buckeye chickens, herbs, and veggies. People deserve the options of fresh local food grown with love and care for the Land. 


At UGCC, we release the constraints society has placed on us and grow in community. We go further because we have each other. We push each other to re-image and build better futures for our communities and heal the hurt of the past. People feel like they can show up as their whole self, not just the shiny parts that are praised. There is space for all emotions, highs, and lows. We uphold boundaries and respect them with enthusiasm. We dream out loud!


What are we raising coin for?

-A tiny house on wheels! Specifically a gorgeous Ram Promaster and the conversion by me and the community! Paying the people that help me is very important and this fundraiser helps get there :)

-Starting Unbound Growing Community Cooperative’s Mushroom growing!

-Funds to care for the chicken flock until egg production starts next year. Goal is 35 chickens by 2022!

-Covering ongoing medical care for a small amount of reprieve


When will this go down?!
-Mushroom growing starts ASAP
-Van Build and chicken incubation starts in the summer (winter is still holding on for dear life!)


Help me make my dream of building sanctuary for accessible, healing Land relationship a reality for as many people as I can. Affordable, safe, long term housing will allow for so much more energy to be channeled into growing the farm and supporting those around me. Thank you for reading. Please donate and share. No amount is too small. Sending calming energy to everyone that supports in the ways that feel good! Peace yall :)
