So that we all may thrive
Heartbeat Gardens is a 501(c)3 non-profit farm.
We are responding to the immediate needs of local food insecurity by donating all of our organic produce to food pantries.
We are working towards the long-term health of our community and ecosystem by teaching others how to grow food and herbal medicine in this habitat using methods that support a vital ecosystem for generations to come.
Community Days Canceled today!!
Due to increased COVID concern in our area, we are going to take a pause this month, and see you again next Community Days – Sunday, September 19. Take good care friends!
Last Cooking Class this Thursday September 9th!
Cooking from a (Permaculture) Garden with Sara DeAloia.
Each week we’ll browse the Heartbeat gardens together and, using simple ingredients, will craft a few recipes for immediate enjoyment and several for taking home. Each week will be different; each week a creative process of letting the garden bounty guide our palettes and hands. Click here to reserve your spot.

We offer educational opportunities on sustainable agriculture, ecology, and herb-crafting. This occurs through mentorship, volunteer opportunities, Community Days, and through our new online herbcrafters course.
Over the years we have come to know that being in the garden and and sharing meals together is a healing pathway from the root up. We remember our belonging through this communal care of one another and our living landscape.
Additionally, learning to work with food and herbs from the garden to create family and community health, and doing it in a way that contributes to a thriving ecosystem, engages us in a process of co-healing with one another and our landscape.
Through our educational programming, hundreds of pounds of food is produced. We are responding to food insecurity in our region by donating all our fresh, organic produce to our local food pantries, while also working towards a long-term vision of a strong local food economy accessible to all.
