Hi I'm letty chichitonyoltli martinez. I am an activist, herbalist, dog worker and farmer. I was lucky to be part of the pilot program Beginning Farmers of Color in 2018 and am proud to join you all on this Pathway to Farming in 2019 and beyond. I grow medicinal herbs and make holistic herbal remedies for dogs and humans and will be growing for La Clinica's CSA this season.

I grew up in Chicago but my family of origin is from an area in northeastern Mexico called Coahuila. I am a veteran, have a background in public health and community health education I’ve been living and working in Portland since April of 2012. I live here with my sweet heart, our 2 dogs and recently, my nephew Victor, who came to live with us and help us grow. I'm grateful for this opportunity to continue growing and learning in community.
