Our
homestead
provides our family, neighbors, and friends with some of the
foods
and medicines that we need to live. It is a peaceful place where we relax, play, experiment and
connect
with the earth and our spirits. Environmental
stewardship
and permaculture principles guide how we interact with the land.
