About us: Peace Farm is a co-operative permaculture farm, and a community of families who value and practice yoga, wholistic therapies, conscious parenting, wholistic education, hand crafting and self sufficiency skills and technologies. We have an organic veggie growing CSA garden, an heirloom seedlings nursery, and an events space focusing on arts, crafts, permaculture education and wellbeing. There are 4 goats, lots of chickens, and are planting a food forest and fruit orchards.
We have found that people who are interested in permaculture, intentional community living, wholistic health and wellbeing, yoga, arts and crafts as a sacred practice, and earth stewardship get the most value from their stay here. There are ample opportunities to share and apply your gifts and explore your passions in very real ways. We do prefer longer stays,preferably a month at a time as this will give the WWOOFers time to experience the community lifestyle and build long lasting friendships.
Our Organic Heirlooms Nursery
PEACE Farm Organic Heirloom seedlings are made up of more than 100 varieties grown at PEACE Farm or from seed saved in the valley and seed sourced from quality organic seed companies, suited to the local climate and conditions.
This day and age gardeners and eaters are looking for the freedom to grow and eat produce that is grown without chemicals for which I have been providing this service since 2006.
