Rose Island Farm
Rose Island Farm is an Indigenous family-owned farm in southeast Tacoma. We prioritize and center people of culture and all our Indigenous relatives. Our farm is located in the territory of the Puyallup Indian Tribe and their coastal Salish relatives. We lovingly grow and care for herbs, foods, and create herbal supports for relatives at the Tahoma Indian Center and local BIPOC relatives. Melissa hosts community classes at the farm and provides safe space for Black and Indigenous community and families. Our farm is named after the village that Melissa comes from in northern BC, Lax kw’alaams or “Island of Wild Roses.” Our farm logo was designed by Nuxalk artist Danika Saunders.
