our mission statement is growing in community.

we covenant:

  • to provide a safe place for women to explore our spirituality and creativity in an atmosphere of sobriety, develop our artistic skills and collaborate to create community based public art in a sustainable way.

  • to welcome women regardless of age, economics, education, sexual orientation, gender identification, race, ethnic origin, citizen status, physical abilities, mental health challenges, recovery journey, spirituality, political beliefs or veteran status.

  • to hold a sacred intention for those who are affected by the issues of human trafficking.

  • to honor this sky, land and water as its own being, which sustains the original people of the ho-chunk nation, this historic african american neighborhood, the german immigrants who established this ministry and the women of this project who share the values of living with the earth for future generations.

how we approach restoration of land depends, of course, on what we believe that "land" means. if land is just real estate, then restoration looks very different than if land is the source of a subsistence economy and a spiritual home. restoring land for production of natural resources is not the same as renewal of land as cultural identity. we have to think about what land means.
