ABOUT THE LAND
Yarrow Ecovillage Community farm is a 20-acre certified organic community farm located at Yarrow Ecovillage, a 33-household co-housing / ecovillage community. Farmers lease land from the Ecovillage, run their individual operations, and work together to share advice/experience and resources.
The farmers here care deeply about balancing earning a living with caring for the land, natural resources, and the wide diversity of life in the area. Stewart creek runs through the farmland, and is home to salmon, a wide array of birds, amphibians, and occasionally splashing, laughing children and sweaty farmers.
ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY
Yarrow Ecovillage is accepting applications from farmers seeking to lease land until January 31, 2021, so don’t wait to get in touch!
There are approximately 3 acres still available for potential farmers. Some of the land was cultivated this season, while other fields are planted in cover crops. Water is available onsite as is the potential for storage.
Yarrow Ecovillage assesses the fit of prospective farmers to ensure they align with Yarrow Ecovillage Community Farm values; the potential for the farmer to contribute to the farm as a whole, and work of the Farm Team; and the land available. While priority is given to residents of the Yarrow Ecovillage, off-site farmers are considered. Leases begin on January 31 for successful applicants.
