About Conscious Homestead

B R I E F - B I O:
Candace Jennifer Taylor is the founder of Conscious Homestead (L3C), an educational urban homestead and Conscious Kitchen (LLC), a full-circle catering and ancestral food education space both based in Winooski VT. ConsciousHomestead and Conscious Kitchen focus on the practice of living consciously with our environment as a radical way to heal and transform our world both individually and collectively. I am also a yoga teacher at Laughing River Yoga, a faculty on several yoga teacher trainings, the creator of Together We Rise Immersion and Mentorship focusing on yoga as a practice to understand and unearth the avidya of oppression within each one of us. I am one of the founders of a collective called Rebel Womxn: A Sisters of the Yam Gathering focused on building community and healing within women of color communities.  Candace is a mother to David, partner to Tony and daughter to Frank and Camille. There are many things, places, experiences, people that make me ME.   

W H Y - P A T R E O N:
I am using Patreon as a platform for my work of many reasons.  As a small, black-owned, women's business I have been seeking a space that is versatile enough to share my offerings to the community I serve in an accessible way.  This platform enables me to sustainably do my work while retaining the autonomy and space I need to create.  I will also be able to connect with those guided to my work more meaningfully which is something I deeply desire.  Added bonus, Patreon also provides me with the support and community I need to grow my work and ultimately our collective impact on the land and each other.
