Our Garden

On nearly 2 acres, we endeavor to grow and learn with, through, and alongside the plants and soil. This journey is to cultivate healthy, thriving soil as the basis for lush, nutritious, and resilient plants, and beyond to flourishing animals (including us - humans), and clean water and air.


Garden Tours

Interested in learning more about the garden through a visit? Tours can be arranged though require scheduling ahead. Free-will donations are welcome.
