A paradigm-shattering and place-centric context—that, to harvest, we must first become.
Timshel Wildland is a 400-acre regenerative, process-led, and emergent conservation wildland located south of Charlottesville, Virginia and in the heart of Central Virginia. Since 2017, the land – once a horse farm turned degenerative commercial cattle farm – has been devoted to a pioneering wilding project.
The Wildland today occupies the ancient home of the Siouan Indians of the Monacan and Mannahoac Nations. It is believed that just a couple steps south of this ridge and up its river valley is Monahassanough, a great city of the Monacans that was occupied as early as the Late Paleoindian to Early Archaic Period, or 10,000 to 8,000 years ago. Together, we can fight indiginous erasure.Click here to learn more!
