Learning Gardens

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.

Healing Gardens

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.

Community Gardens

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.

Success! You're on the list.
