About

Operation Irrigation: Help us get untangled! 

We currently have a system of above ground hoses stretched over two acres to water our gardens and furry friends. We will be adding 14.22 more acres to the mix this summer that will also need irrigating and we are running out of hoses!

Problems:                                                                                                          

1.  Not enough pressure to accommodate the farm expansion.

2.Our hoses are vulnerable above ground, leading to many leaks and hours of searching for those pesky leaks.

Solution

1. Dig us a  20" deep trench from our water source down to the farm.

2. Lay 4" PVC pipe in that trench.

3. Water for all our plants and furry loves!

Good Irrigation= Great Food for Good People

About Us

We are dedicated to creating an environment in which you feel uninhibited while playing a role in a sustainable community. With your help we can build a creative hub that respects the earth, using alternative farming methods while simultaneously reaping the benefits of localized agricultural production.

 As the project moves forward and we further develop our facilities we provide opportunities for education, demonstration, project management, and research. We are working to develop a network of knowledge sharing between artists, students, horticulturalists, builders, yogis, wellness experts, performers, educators and other intentional communities to become a positive driving force locally and beyond.

Our end goal is to bloom into a sustainable artistic collective that provides an innovative environment where like minded individuals from all pockets of society can stay and volunteer, attend classes, enjoy art and music events, spearhead development projects , or simply enjoy what farm life has to offer.

Risks and challenges

Starting an alternative business comes with it's ups and downs. But with the freedom of getting creative on a daily basis and a community that continues to grow, our challenges become something that keeps us moving forward in positive way. The farm continues to attract professionals seeking a break from the boundaries of the city. Because of this, there is an ever growing pot of knowledge and support. We have had over 200 folks come through our farm within the first year, it is because of this we feel certain that we can overcome most challenges that will be thrown our way!
