The Ecology

  • The 80 acres of mixed conifer forest land is continually managed for fire safety and ecological health, the goal being to re-establish a fire cycle and promote botanical diversity.

  • Through responsible stewardship we monitor botanical growth to nurture ecological education in our community.

  • Through experimentation we continue to explore how and where plants thrive in the various soils and exposures on the land.

  • The engagement with the ecosystem will serve to strengthen the connection for those involved and lead to art informed and inspired by this stewardship.

  • A regenerative organic farm with seasonal fresh fruits and vegetables.
