Y’all... @junipermoonfolkarts is doin a ruuuulll sweet giveaway and I want me to win almost as badly as I want YOU to win. Check out their page for more details, and PLEASE follow these babely makers Raina & Vann!! #Repost #pickinandpinnin ・・・ We wanna wish a happy #pridemonth ESPECIALLY to those farm fags, dirt dykes, forest femmes, homegrown homos, backwoods bisexuals, and trailer twinks out there living in the hills and hollers. Most of the time we aren’t represented correctly (or at all) in media or the #lgbtqia+ community but that’s starting to change thanks to a bunch of rural queers making amazing art, music, and journalistic endeavors all over our region. We love all of them and hope they’ve had a rad Pride month. 🌈✨👨🏻‍🌾👨🏼‍🌾❤️👩🏽‍🌾👩🏻‍🌾✨🌈

I wish I had the brain power to have posted more, but my weekend required a lot of just being present. It was so necessary and reminded me of how much healing I need to do. Anyway I wanted my last post to honor an aunt of mine. Her name was Vanessa and she’s the first person I knew as gay. As a toddler, I looked at her and was inspired by the way she challenged gender. Here she is (left) pictured with her mother. I didn’t know her well because my own mom kept me away from her because of homophobia and serious addict shaming. Once I said “I wanna look just like her when I grow up” and my mom screamed “No you don’t! You don’t wanna be like THAT” . I still wonder what she was like. The stories she would tell as a country queer, raising hell in Tazewell Co. Virginia. The sad reality is she died by suicide in 2006 at just 25. We came from the same rural county, same hereditary mental illness, and generational poverty. But one difference I want to name is that theres a community I have now that I think saves me everyday. I wouldn’t have access to this if it wasn’t for this strange timeline I live in. It’s chance I was born in this time and place where many opportunities and resources have been around, comparatively to a decade ago. There are still so many rural people that are outside of our queer outreach. Our community can be dangerously insular. I’m am committing myself to changing that. This has been @virginia._slime Posting for #countryqueers

Some weeks ago in one of our many random text message threads about the wild ride of parenting, @prima.de.afuera asked me, “From where do we get our power?” It was rhetorical, not to be answered in that avenue but a prompt for exploring. This question and all its facets, nooks and crannies thread together a type of discovery that comes from the sluggish work of digging around in one’s own mind and slowing enough to hear the instinctual whispers that are always accompanying us. I’ve been quiet in this reflection - writing to find a path, but not an answer, and holding all the truths and falsehoods that emerge. You see, power is a tricky thing with trials and tribulations of both our own making and all that is around us. Power is both imagined and tangible, individual and collective, a poison and a medicine. We come to know our power, where we abuse it, where we give it away, where it is taken away, and where we wield it for the greatest good by the very walk of life itself. Each well of experience and knowledge and learning cannot be traded or bartered away. We must trust and risk and create and fight for the sake of our power, for all its might, filled with grace, is part of our equation for liberation. . . . #yearofeternalspring #elcenote #nepantla #radicalwomenco #motherhoodrising #liberationinourlifetime #countryqueers #happymonday #brujxconocimiento

Scenes from making my way back to town after teaching today at @marlborocollege -- the end of our third week of "Interrogating Queer & Trans Histories" a course focused on LGBTQ movement history and oral history as a medium. . If you'd like to explore using oral history as a tool in LGBTQ communities, we will have Rachel from @countryqueers here for a daylong session on Friday Nov. 9 at our Out in the Open Summit! (!!!!!!)

🍂🍃If you have been listening, the seasons have been whispering of change. We are always doing our best to hear the transition and prepare for the next step while also being present in what's going on right now. 🍁As we come back to the same season in which this garden was started last year we are planning our expansion and growth. Our first step is to mulch and define our pathways with a thick layer of wood chips/green mulch. 👩‍🌾 We found a local fellow who sells firewood and mulch and just got 10 yards of his chipped mulch. We will weed-eat the paths, letting everything fall and decompose into the soil. Then we will load it up with chips! Follow our progress over the next month as we build this awesome garden up! . . . . . . . . . . #queerfarmers #womenwhofarm #queerswhofarm #enbieswhofarm #queerdirt #countryqueers #growwhatyoueat  #growingfood #instagardeners  #ediblegarden  #garden #gardening #growyourownfood #homegrown  #homegarden  #vegetablegarden  #veggiegarden #organicgardening  #gardenlife  #greenthumb

I’ve been doing a lot of teaching and facilitation in the apiaries this season: interns, first time beekeepers, curious humans, artists, spiritual seekers, land conservationists and students @umass. It’s one of my happiest places— sharing knowledge and ideas, breaking down barriers to access and stigma about stinging insects, and sharing the magic and science of it all. Here are a few flicks from a gorgeous late summer day in the apiary. Thanks to @gretasvalberg for these beautiful 📷. #apiculture #experientiallearning #pollinatorpower #beemagic #honeybees #embodiedpractice #changemaking #radical #healing #art #withbees #busybee #countryqueers #beesarequeercommunity #decolonizethehive

🍋🍋This spring I volunteered for our county master gardeners plant sale and scored this little #myerlemon for five bucks. It's still in the little 4 inch pot but it's really healthy and has a single lemon!

After work, the sky turned golden. The curls of smoke around my fingertips met the rainclouds, pregnant and passing over the farm. I listened to the geese bellow. It echoed off the window. I sometimes wonder if every experience leaves bits of oneself behind. If, like a dust mote, like dandruff, there is a particulate cast-off of molecules that get absorbed into some other object. Ones that haunt a space. That fertilize a house with memories and maybe that is what makes the floorboards ache at night. I wonder, then, if the windowpane keeps a trace of the geese’s caterwauling. I wonder if the clouds are pregnant with prayer and curses and birthday wishes as well as rain. I wonder what trace of myself I have left in the chickens, in the dogs, in the field where I bore down my nails digging potatoes by hand. I wonder if the golden yolks are a sign of my commitment. If the small kisses Elsa gives me are traces of memories left behind the house to spark her tenderness. If the flowers I pick in the garden grew bold and bright and electric because that is how I was feeling the day I planted them, months ago. In the high noon of Summer. Is this what satisfaction and contentment and pride feels like?

This Saturday, Imagine Queer Futures with us wherever you are by using the hashtag #Queers4ClimateJustice. #ImagineQueerFutures #QueerResilience #QueerFutures #LandJustice #QueerTheLand #CountryQueers #Ecofaith Image Description: Intricate black and white line work fills the page like a coloring book. Across the top, large letters covered with vines and flowers proclaim: "Imagine Queer Futures". Between the letters is a floating queer ecological land teaming with life: birds eat from corn, trees and sunflowers grow tall while roots and fungi interlace below, pumpkins hide out beneath thick leaves, and nestled in the middle are two femme-fluid beings with side-shaved hair, holding each other close. Nestled into the line work, fine text reads: Art by Sarah Holst #sarahholstart. Curving beneath the nest in large lettering is the hashtag #Queers4ClimateJustice. Artist Statement: I'm writing this statement with one hand with a baby sleeping on my chest--who both requires me to make this statement short and sweet and inspires me to be extra invested in this work. In the queer and holy work of saying NO to the lies of cis-heteropatriarchy, white supremacy, and extraction capitalism, what sustains me is finding strong, beautiful, tender, green and growing, composting, muddy YESES. Movement history, the wisdom and stories of the land, community, and the process of creating artwork are all tools for my embodied imagining of a future where relationships are as diverse and deep and dazzling as we all are. I like to remember that, for the land surrounding us that holds us, biodiversity is the source of life. The silt-filled waters are the most nutrient dense. Those of us who have practice transgressing boundaries, subverting structures, and planting communities in the cracks of a broken system will have what we need to thrive as ways of conformity and individualism fail.

Hey dear #countryqueers & friends. Been taking some time off from takeovers as you might have noticed, but don’t worry! They’ll be back and better real soon!!! • I’m t.h.r.i.l.l.e.d. to introduce the new Country Queers account managers: Shannel (they/she) @virginia._slime & Olivia (she/her) @queencoal ! These badass swVA fabulachian @stayproject babes are doing a joint takeover September 13-17, 2018 to introduce themselves. And they’ll be taking lead from there.. • I’ll still be around, but trying to focus on getting the 60+ oral histories gathered with incredible country queers from across the US out into the world. Thanks for sticking with this 6-year-old project as it grows and evolves! ❤️ Rachel. • 📷 @loumurrey

We’re back! Thanks to our oldest daughter who held down the farm while we were gone, we spent the most glorious eight days in California on our first proper vacation in eight years! Back on the farm now, we’re refreshed, revitalized, and determined to strike a new balance between farm life, work off the farm, family, and self-care! After years of chasing dreams and burning all the candles at both ends we’re determined to slow down a bit, be more present with each other and ourselves, and refocus on the day to day as well as our end goals. A few years ago we intentionally decided to dive head on into chasing our farm dreams and while we’ve accomplished so much already, we’ve run ourselves a bit ragged in the process, which doesn’t serve us well now and won’t serve us well later...especially if we burn ourselves out. Cheers to renewed passion tempered by the reminder that if you’re not having fun, you’re doing it all wrong 😉 And so, followed around by the pups that missed us so, we spent a good part of the evening harvesting the ripest raspberries while a storm swirled around the mesas and valleys and rainbows danced on the horizon. The fruit abundance has truly just begun and with it will come work like we’ve not yet known before, but the view is lovely, the company is perfect, and our passions (and plenty of caffeine) will find a way to keep us moving forward! At least that’s the plan 👩🏻‍🌾 . . . . #growwhereyouareplanted #homesweethome #farmher #farmlife #balance #farmscene #iamcountryside #nothingisordinary #lesbianfarmer #queerswhofarm #queerfarmers #countryqueers #thegayfarmers #homegrown #growyourown #farmfresh #farmtotable #knowitorgrowit #livecolorfully #flashesofdelight #farmkid #thepursuitofjoyproject #greatpyrenees #greatpyreneesofthehour #greatpyreneesoftheday #lgd #livestockguardiandog #huskey #raspberries #raspberryharvest

Sometimes grief gets stuck in the body, sometimes it becomes water that moves through you, transforming, sometimes it wells back up in the form of a wave of rage and fire. Sometimes it becomes a small stone that you roll around in the palm of your hand as an accompaniment to meditation. Grief, it has metamorphosis and seasons too. . . . #yearofeternalspring #margaretatwood #tejas #soco #spellboundherbals #motherhoodrising #radicalwomenco #countryqueers #traumarecovery #mentalhealthawareness #grief #sundaymood

We did a thing! We are giving a go at our first #CSA type box thing, that in true Aisha + Kelsey fashion doesn't really follow CSA typical standards! The weather has been real crappy lately with the wildfires, so our regular outlet of the market has been somewhat hit or miss. The garden hasn't stopped producing though so we need to move vegetables asap. We put an idea out there and like five of our friends swooped it up. Tomorrow we will be delivering $10 produce boxes to some folks. These are box examples. The left one has three $1 add ons so it looks a bit heftier. The one on the right is a standard. We're really excited to see how this sales model is different than the market one and also wanna see if we enjoy it more/less.

Today we're talking about weeds. What a weed is is highly personal, especially depending on your gardening/farming philosophy. We haven't done much weeding this season mostly because I, Aisha, really dislike the time and energy it takes. I don't like how it disrupts the soil either. So up until today our youngest bed has been our WILD child. This photo represents my weeding compromise. Weeding the beds so we can plant fall brassicas but not the pathways. All the weeds are piled into the center and the living ones are simply matted down. This provides us lots of organic matter for the paths and keeps them mulched to avoid erosion. #notill #marketgarden #permaculture #queerswhofarm #womenwhofarm #enbieswhofarm #southernoregon #countryqueers #weeds #gardening #organic

Hi #countryqueers & friends.  Rachel here with a few updates/thoughts. .. 1st: I can still hardly believe it happened, but, I got to interview @dorothyallisonwriter for Country Queers this month. As a writer, a southern born & raised queer, a history nerd, & a huge fan it was truly amazing.  She was as feisty, funny, wise, fierce, generous, & welcoming as you could hope for.  Can’t wait to share the interview! • 2nd:  I want to thank @twinoaksqueergathering for the takeover last week, & also to acknowledge that some of their content & language was really harmful in terms of gender & race.  I also want to thank folks for raising some really important critiques of the takeover itself & issues of white supremacy in country queer life generally. The tensions, contradictions, & messiness of promoting rural pride – specifically among predominantly white queer folks – in a country founded on & fueled by genocide, slavery, land theft, & colonialism are not lost on me. And, I still believe in a need for first person rural queer accounts of the joys, challenges, terrors, triumphs of our lives. • The goal of this project has never been to amplify one kind of rural or queer experience, to romanticize rural life, to deny the problems in rural spaces. The goal has been to amplify many experiences of queerness & rural life, and complicate ideas of both.  To demand a national conversation that doesn’t simplify queerness to metropolitan, wealthy, cis-gendered whiteness, or rural-ness to conservative Christian white heteronormativity. .. Content of takeovers are left wide open so folks can craft their stories as suits them, but clearly a process is needed to determine when & how to step in when harmful content and dynamics come up. Development of some clearer guidelines is in progress. I’m grateful to everyone who has shared their stories, & their frustrations & critiques of this work.  Please keep both coming... • 3rd:  I’m super excited to announce that the moderation of this account is going to shift hands to some badass young Central Appalachian babes from swVA from @stayproject More on that soon! .. 🧡💜❤️🖤💚💛💖 from eKY

Been dreaming about el cenote. Been writing, writing, writing. Been knowing. Been coming up for air. Been calling in chosen familia for each of their special skills. Been hitting my 205 day meditationversary. Been celebrating small victories. Been reflecting on the magic that is my life. Been seeing the gifts of ten years of deep commitment to sharing the stories that matter. Been seeing the spirits of the dead accompanying me. Been time traveling. Been growing. Been transforming. Ain’t no metamorphosis here yet but that molting sure is here (thank you @chaninicholas and los dos mariposa visitors for affirming my morning pages). Really, this is a post about all that and to say thank you and to say some things are coming and to say that eating this ceviche I made is probably the best thing that’s happened to me all year and I couldn’t be happier. . . . #elcenote #yearofeternalspring #nepantla #mariposa #traumarecovery #mentalhealthawareness #countryqueers #radicalwomenco #motherhoodrising
