Where are you located?
We live on 1/3rd acre lot in Millwood. Resting on the banks of the Spokane River, Millwood is small town in center of the Spokane Valley.
What do you do specifically?
After watching Homegrown Revolution, among other influences, we felt called to start living differently. In 2015 we committed our property to food production, resilience, and living in a regenerative relationship with the natural world. This year we are also leasing 10 plots at Pumpkin Patch Community Garden. We built infrastructure on our leased plots to extend our growing season to yearlong, mild winters permitting.
We are actively looking to purchase 2+ acres in the Millwood/Spokane Valley area to start a nursery.
Do you give tours?
If you are interested in increasing the productivity of your home, we would love to meet you. Lunch at our place, us visiting your property, or a quick coffee meeting are all ways we would love to connect with you!
If you have a:
* youth group
* garden club
* civic group
…and want to host a workshop we have would love to plan something with you.
* A developing perennial food forest * Chickens * Bunnies * Bee Hives * Multiple soil building projects * Cut flowers * Berries galore *
Are you a real farm?
We produce food in excess to what our family consumes. However, our excesses are often gifted to neighbors and other community members.
We have also been known to set up and manage chicken coops and bunny hutches for our neighbors who are interested in incorporating elements of suburban farming on their properties but don’t know how to start. We believe the more families in our neighborhood that are engaged in this work, the more resilient our neighborhood is for everyone!
What will you be selling at the Millwood Farmer’s Market this year?
We will be selling surpluses from our property.
* Greens & edible flowers
* Dehydrated soup & stew mixes
* Baked goods
We will also have books, specifically copies of books that helped us along our journey. Mostly we will be at the Millwood Farmer’s Market because we love our community. We want to share ideas with our neighbors about becoming a more resilient Millwood!
How do you make money?
We have jobs!
We do have future plans to set up a commercial nursery, but until that happens we are enthusiasts first. Also, we are developing a network of other passionate homesteaders & farmers who want to engage their communities the same way we have engaged ours.
