Johanna Rosen launched Meadowhawk Farm in 2018 at her home in Montague, Massachusetts, on traditional Pocumtuc land. Jo uses low-till practices to grow vegetables, fruits, flowers, and herbs on less than an acre, set amidst meadow, forest, and wetland ecosystems. She is proud to embrace her role as a seed steward, and to be part of efforts to promote seed sovereignty, biodiversity, resilience, and varieties that will thrive in organic and regenerative systems in the northeast.
Jo also works off-farm with Equity Trust, a small, national non-profit supporting community ownership of land and other resources, in particular affordable and secure land tenure for farmers. Previously, she spent over a decade working in the urban agriculture movement in Philadelphia, including as co-founder and director of the Mill Creek Farm.
