Our Mission

Through our equitable programs, we seek to right the wrongs done to the BIPOC community

People of color have suffered horrific wrongs as a result of colonization, genocide and gentrification. At Yasuke Commons, our primary purpose is to remedy the lasting effects of those harms on the mental, physical and spiritual well-being of those impacted.

Our holistic healing programs work in harmony to disrupt inequities that have plagued marginalized communities for generations. Our unique business model is rooted in ancestral practices of regeneration, resilience, culturally-specific healing modalities, and plant wisdom and medicine.

Who We Are

A health and wellness non-profit organization integrated with a farm

Yasuke Commons and Commons is a woman-owned, BIPOC-led, diverse collective dedicated to healing the harms done through systemic racism and oppressive systems.

About Michelle


Founder of Yasuke Commons

Dr. Michelle Rose hails from a lineage of farmers. She was inspired to take up farming after obtaining a degree in neuropsychology where she learned about the connection between food and health. Driven by a passion for food & racial justice, she recognized the importance of having access to nutritious, culturally relevant food in addressing the health challenges that plague many BIPOC communities.


Farming History

Michelle began farming 17 years ago with an organic farm in Ridgefield, WA. She farmed through various incubator programs in OR and received training in permaculture, water conservation & regenerative agriculture. She earned a degree in Sustainability and Healthcare. She currently grows produce on Multnomah County Soil and Land Conservation land (OR) which is predominantly distributed to underserved BIPOC neighborhoods in the Portland Metro area. Our project leadership team has several decades of combined farming experience.
