Wild Town is a non-profit land-based healing and food education organization located in New Waterford, Unama’ki (Cape Breton Island). With the understanding that good, locally-produced food can revitalize the physical and mental health of people and communities, Wild Town is committed to actions that promote healing, decolonization, self-actualization, and regenerative food production.
Our planet is in crisis. We need actions now to avoid climate catastrophe and improve our world for the next seven generations. At Wild Town we recognize our responsibility in contributing to the climate crisis and work daily to shrink our footprint. Our primary tool in this healing journey is local and ethically-sourced food. Our primary focus is youth on land.
Food has the power to change the world and end injustice. When we share food, we come together, no matter our age, gender, race, ability, class, or identity. Food builds community and fosters connection. By building strong, truly diverse, locally-serviced communities we can replace the unjust systems that currently oppress 99% of the global population and enhance our resilience in times of crisis.
Our actions are informed by truth and love. At Wild Town it is our mission to:
- Recognize we are all colonized.
- Replace abusive, unjust systems with love.
- Regenerate land.
- Rebuild communities.
- Re-wild the landscape.
