Nutritious Food and Beautiful Floral Designs

 
 
Food and medicine are not two different things: they are the front and back of one body.

The Idea

We started farming for two reasons. We wanted to produce quality food to nourish people in our community and because we wanted to do work that was ethical, sustainable, and moral.

 

The Practice

Our Farm is permaculture based. We use cover crops as much as possible while also not tilling the earth. This builds soil while improving soil microflora and fauna. We seek to grow the most nutritious food we can. We believe in natural farming. No synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides are used. Finally we try to limit our petroleum use as much as possible. Our farm is completely off grid truly powered by the sun.
