Blacks Run Forest Farm is a riparian nursery and folk school rooted in love and living soil. These roots grow out as agroforestry, watershed health, and restorative justice. We tend the silver waters of Blacks Run, the Shenandoah, and downstream by farming in the image of the forest and remediating the toxins that pollute our souls, society, and soil, from chemical leaching to white supremacy. In fact, we see all this as an expression of restorative justice, a way of transforming harm and injustice by respecting needs, holding ourselves accountable for healing, and making relationships and conditions as right as possible so that all creatures can be fully themselves!
