Thriving Ecosystem

Phase 2 of this amazing adventure will be to establish perennial polyculture on the 12.5 acres not included in our home building area. Our goal is to sell enough of our farm products to sustain the operation, and to give away the remaining food to local food banks and other outlets providing fresh, wholesome food to those with limited resources.

Perennial polyculture ameliorates climate change because organic soil sequesters carbon dioxide. In addition, it:

  • enables soil to retain more moisture and is thus less reliant on artificial irrigation;
  • is less susceptible to erosion;
  • improves worker health because of the absence of toxic pesticides and herbicides;
  • and it provides habitat for pollinators, birds and beneficial insects, which promotes biodiversity.
