Our Mission

Our Mission

To foster a healthy and sustainable environment; promote social, economic, environmental, housing, food, and spiritual justice, and strengthen democracy for our BIPOC Elder Women/Grandmothers, and Grandfathers. Phase One.

Phase two through five include: Grandparents with custody of their grandchildren; Families; 2SLGBTQ+; Veterans; and Teens aging out of foster care.

Our Vision

The Grandmothers Village Project is a not-for-profit organization founded to uphold and provide respect, honor, and care for our Elders, centering on our Grandmothers. By providing living spaces for a growing community of like-minded, spirit-centered, and health-minded Elders, we will provide the means for our Elders to live independently and sustainably, with ceremony and spirit at the core. The Wisdom Tree Village will be our flagship community of Grandmothers (and some grandfathers) that live a spiritually-based, environmentally conscious, and animist life, located in Massachusetts. Our community will build eco-sustainable, net-zero homes, and be conscientious and considerate of environmental impact and health within our infrastructure. We will grow our own regenerative organic farm food herbs, and medicine. And in the Retreat Center and Sanctuary culturally inclusive practices, ceremony, creativity, education, health care, fitness and more will be at the heart of this community. This will be a place where Elders are honored for their wisdom and will have ceremonial space to share their wisdom both within and outside the community. A diversity of traditions will be honored and welcomed here. At the center, and common ground will be a deep respect and love for the land and nature, a knowing that we are all connected: Humans, Animals, Plants, the Earth, the Waters, the Air, and all they contain; and a dedication to live in a manner that is good medicine for all involved.

Our Values

The highest integrity in every endeavor and interaction. Honor and respect for our human and other than human relatives, the land, and all of nature. Commitment to JEDI: Diversity, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion of all BIPOC-identified people. Commitment to the land, good health, organic food, and zero carbon emissions. We hold a Spiritual, Animist, Trust Based philosophy grounded in Indigenous Technologies, Values and Customs.
