Earthseed Land Collective

…in pursuit and practice of collective liberation

Our Collective

We are Earthseed Land Collective! Our mission is to remember and reimagine our relationship to ourselves, each other and the land in pursuit and practice of collective liberation.


Earthseed is a center for community resilience through cooperative ownership of land and resources. We are a transformational response to systemic oppression, committed to centering People of Color and other communities pushed to the margins.


Currently we are growing a center for community resilience; stewarding 48 acres of land for collective healing, cultural arts, food justice, food sovereignty, and cooperative learning.

Sustain Us

Thanks to some of our great friends, whom have supported us towards our goal!  If you want to become a sustainer of Earthseed, you can do so by committing to donate a specific monthly amount.


In 2016, Earthseed Land Cooperative purchased a beautiful 48-acre property in Durham County! This land has woods for roaming, fields for growing, and multiple structures to house our vision. Our members have already begun making trails, hosting groups, holding ceremony and saving seeds.We are clear that our communities need access to space for convening, organizing, celebrating, healing and beyond. Join us on the land.

TOGETHER: This is our alternative path.
