With a vision for the land, both as a sacred healing space and as an environmentally sustainable hub where our footprint is small, we nurture simplicity, sustainability and holistic health.
We’ve begun to plant nut trees, native vegetation and are eager to cultivate gardens and develop a nursery. Crop covers of organic buckwheat, oats and winter rye are regenerating the soil in preparation for vegetable gardens, herbs and flowers, in an effort to fortify wildlife such as the butterflies, bees and bluebirds.
Throughout the property you’ll find a wide range of vegetation including uncommon medicinal plants. With over seven ecosystems it’s the perfect landscape for permaculture education and supporting the growth of diverse trees, and plant species. There are areas of mature black walnut trees and a nearby natural black walnut nursery. The forests include mature hickory, oak, birch, ash, and thankfully, the endangered butternut tree. The ferns and moss covered soil and bark in the forests are wonder filled areas for fairy gardens and the kindling of our imagination!
We look forward to developing gardens and a nursery which includes organic produce, medicinal herbs, sapling and seeds for indigenous plants and trees (particularly ones at risk) and plants that serve the pollinators. Education (numerous events/year) will focus on a variety of topics that support sustainability and make a positive difference to our health and the planet.
