What We Do at Mama Scrap's
Created for the freedom fighter, the healer, the artist, the womxn, the queer, the oppressed and marginalized, we provide spaces and experiences for BIPOC to find freedom and liberation through engaging in healing and wellness. From retreats to rituals, meditation spaces to sustainability practices, we seek to provide a liberating and inclusive healing space for those in our midst who seek to be whole and live well!
While offering our healing services virtually, including birthing support through our doula work that you can learn more about below, we are also in the process of building our wellness village in Hillsboro, Mississippi. The 5+ acres of forested land was purchased by Mama Scrap in 1919, and 100 years later, her great (great) granddaughters became the stewards of it. Soon, Mama Scrap’s land will house a small-scale self-sufficient, sustainable village offering holistic retreat experiences by utilizing our permaculture farm and eco-friendly housing.
