Nature's Flow: The Power of Womanhood and Generational Wisdom in Sustainable Farming


The Power of Interconnectedness: Nature and Womanhood in Harmony

Today, I have a beautiful story about the interconnectedness of nature and womanhood. It's a tale of how we birth, grow, and nurture and how this cycle flows like a river. This particular farm, located in the heart of a region that holds special significance to the owner's mother, is a testament to the power of love and determination.



Finding Refuge and Renewal: Resting at the Sustainable Farm

Adri's mom, a retired professor from Tunja University, started this farm as a solo endeavor, driven by her lifelong desire to connect with the land of her forebears. But she was not alone for long. Adri, her daughter, came to live with her and join in the mission of preserving local plant and animal species. Volunteers from across the country bring indigenous plant seeds to grow and reseed, adding to the farm's diversity and sustainability.

Sustainability in Action: Preserving Local Plant and Animal Species



At the heart of this farm's mission is preserving local plant and animal species. Adri and her mother recognize the importance of maintaining the region's biodiversity, which is critical for the ecosystem's health. With the help of volunteers from across the country, they have been able to grow and reseed a wide variety of indigenous plant species, restoring the natural balance that has been disrupted by human activity. They have also created habitats for various animal species, including birds, bees, and butterflies, providing a sanctuary for them to thrive. By taking sustainable actions to preserve the local environment, this farm is a shining example of living in harmony with nature rather than exploiting it for our benefit.

The Resilience of Women: Navigating Life's Challenges



Adri, who feels the farm's healing energy daily, has built huts for visitors seeking rest and refuge from the world's weariness. As I spoke with Adri's mother, we shared stories of our struggles with divorce, mourning, and the disconnection from our children. But we also spoke of the resilience of women, of how we flow through life's challenges like water, bearing the pain and creating new life to take the world forward.

Generational Wisdom: Passing on the Cycle of Life and Growth



This farm is a testament to the power of generational wisdom, of how the journeys of our mothers, daughters, and grandmothers combine to create something greater than ourselves. Today, I feel strong, knowing that I am an aggregate of the women who have flowed into me, and I will pass this wisdom on to my daughters to continue the cycle of life.
