The Source Farm Mission
The mission of The Source Farm Foundation and Ecovillage is to be an innovative model community that is dedicated to respecting and creating balance and harmony with plants, animals and humans. It is our mission to create an innovative farm that will provide organic fruits, vegetables, nuts and herbs for our residents and our community.
The Source Farm Vision
The Source Farm Foundation has great vision for the farm. The farm has adopted a permaculture design model and will be an organic farm; following all the current organic standards. The farm will provide traditional table vegetables, fruit from the farm’s orchard, herbs, flowers and poultry and eggs. The farm is designed to allow workers and guests easy access to the farm beds to see/work with the crops that are in production. The farm will also provide many opportunities to teach/share a variety of natural farming methods to the community and its members. The farm will provide a natural sanctuary for residents and visitors.
Type of Farm
