We are committed to growing a diverse array of nutrient-dense vegetables to feed our local community using regenerative agriculture**.
** “Regenerative Agriculture” describes farming and grazing practices that, among other benefits, reverse climate change by rebuilding soil organic matter and restoring degraded soil biodiversity – resulting in both carbon drawdown and improving the water cycle.
"Let's feed people not just fill them!"
- Kelly Lively
The farm we seek to be is one that isn’t taking but rather giving back.
It is in our best interest to interpret systems found in nature to grow nutritious vegetables. our intention is to work with the land is as hands off as possible (while there is still a lot of physical work). We aim to sustain ourselves by making systems as efficient as possible and to sustain the land by causing the least destruction to the soil. we can do this through increasingly effective cover cropping, not tilling the soil, adding organic matter, and adding compost.
Adapting to climate change by growing climate adaptive plants and increasing use of carbon sequestration systems (like no till and soil coverage) give us encouragement and hope for a healthy future. Our aim in farming in this manner is to feel as at home in the natural ecosystem as we should in our community of fellow humans.
