We Have Always Been Related (WHABR)

is a 1-acre, non-profit farming collective in Milwaukee, WI.  WHABR collective member, Chalchiuhkoatl Kardós, described the farm as, “an intentional intergenerational collective of two-spirit, queer, trans, nonbinary and gender expansive (2SQTNBGE) BIPOC earthworkers villaging up to take care of one another and reclaim, remember, and regenerate our traditional roles, responsibilities, knowledges, visions, and medicines within our communities.” Their work is rooted in regenerative practices such as restoring soil health and ancestral knowledge and wisdom to steward the land. With their $4,999 grant they will purchase a variety of supplies and equipment such as compost, a soil PH meter, straw, rice hulls. They also were able to provide seven low-income, 2SQTNBGE BIPOC families a full season’s share in their CSA program, which included four farm visits and two community meals prepared by one of their member chefs with ingredients sourced from the farm.

They distributed a full season’s CSA to seven families and hosted them on the farm throughout the growing season. They have been granted a project extension through September 2024 in order to spend their remaining funds on necessary supplies for an upcoming participatory workshop on microorganisms and organic biofertilizer benefits during the next warm season.
