our farm sites

spirit of the sun has been stewarding land in Colorado for the past few years, but we still do not own our own land. scroll to the bottom to learn about the importance of LandBack.

All of the land that we steward is cared for in line with Indigenous land practices. We grow our Indigenous foodways to restore our ecosystems, feed our community, and preserve our cultural knowledge for future generations. The food from our farms goes directly to our Food Share to feed our elders, their families and the unhoused.

Indigenous foodscapes demonstration garden

This is a small suburban garden hosting Indigenous foodscapes in partnership with local North Park Hill homeowner Gary. In 2022, the site was innoculated with mycelium through an educational workshop with our Native Youth in order to improve the soil and ecosystem health in the neighborhood. 


our Landback



Landback is an Indigenous-led environmental, cultural and political movement that works to place Indigenous land back in Indigenous hands. At Spirit of the Sun, we believe in rematriation. Rematriation signifies a return to Mother Earth and a re-establishment of the important relationship between people and land. By placing land back in the hands of Indigenous people, we are choosing to disrupt systems of patriarchy, oppression and violence by instead affirming the value of relationships and intentional, reciprocal care above all forms of profit and extraction. Land stewarded by Indigenous people contains a significant portion of our Earth's biodiversity, and we need to trust that returning land to Indigenous people is a step towards returning our world to a more healed and balanced system. We need the support of allies who are truly committed to restorative justice, in order to place land back in the care of Indigenous people. Please join us in this work.

With the support of our community, We can return Colorado lands back to Indigenous Hands. if you want support us through landback, click below.
