Nance Klehm with Catatumbo Cooperative Farm

Catatumbo Cooperative Farm is a worker owned collective run by three immigrant queer, nonbinary women, located in South Chicago. CCF uses a community supported agriculture model to provide culturally relevant food for community members in Little Village, Englewood, and South Chicago neighborhoods. CCF officially begun operations in the fall of 2018 but was conceived in 2017 when the three worker owners attended Soul Fire farmers immersion program. It can be argued that the seeds for Catatumbo Cooperative Farm were planted long before that, through their families’ histories and relationship to agriculture, migration, and community-building.

Nance Klehm with Zach Elfers

A curiosity for the natural world has sustained Zach from an early age. This solidified into a passion as he came of age, and dirtied his hands through horticulture, ethnobotany, permaculture, and native plants. Learning native plant propagation, things came together in a very real way, when he realized that the forager's perspective and the propagator's understanding went hand in hand. His path has led him to wild tending, an imperfect word for an ethic of relating to nature, based on reciprocity. Wildtending sets itself as an alternative to the troubled colonial legacy which created the contexts away from which we are presently emerging. Zach is a native of the mid Atlantic Piedmont and is currently based out of the lower Susquehanna river region.
