    Food Independence

    We grow the majority of our food right here.

  • Our own milk

    It’s a lot of work to care for goats, but we sure like the rewards.

We took delivery of two dozen chicks to build up our flock at Emerald Earth.

During the recent rainy days we’ve been laying tile on the floor of the common house. Eric, Tom, Eli, Abeja and Ananth all working together. Many hands make light work (well lighter anyway)!

Friends and residents from Canticle Farm spent a few days during the last days of January assisting us with fruit tree pruning, raspberry bed clean up and various other tasks. It was the first visit for some and a return for others who had first visited us last summer during the Joanna Macy intensive. A meaningful and restorative time was had by all, deepening connections to each other and to the Earth. More work parties are planned in the spring. Come join us!
