We kindly ask you to follow these instructions to contribute to the safety and health of our community. Thank you in advance!



Farming and living in times where we need hope the most

We are living and working in difficult times. We are also parenting, teaching and sharing with one another the greatest opportunity we have to give all we have to hope, courage, and wisdom.

Every harvest season is our living prayer for may all beings be happy and healthy. Acknowledging that we are privileged and blessed, we want to thank you for being part of this journey of resilience and peaceful resistance. Thank you for being part of a community who cares for one another, for our planet and that is waking up to rise up to the challenges of our time.
