Agroecological

lawn-mowersAgroecological production involves utilizing and enhancing the natural features of the farm to increase biodiversity and encourage regenerative agriculture. Integrated, multi-species production and permaculture are used where viable.

 

Soil fertility is augmented through holistic livestock grazing and careful rotations of diverse field and vegetable crops appropriate for this region. The latest technology is used, where it makes sense for small-scale production—because ‘efficiency’, ‘progress’ and ‘tradition’ are not inherently good or bad, but concepts whose potential we frame with our values.

Farm production reflects the aspirations and needs of the community within which it will thrive. We partner with the Women Warriors’ Healing Garden, who provide the chicks to raise a flock of Rhode Island Red for eggs, which in turn support food security at partner agencies.
