Here is some more in depth information on our “sustainable agriculture training and demonstration farm”
As I mentioned before, we have bought a “Sustainable Agriculture Training and Demonstration Farm in Northern Pennsylvania. Called “Rock Bottom Farms – Stillwater”. This project, while on a slow build out, It is non the less moving forward. We hope to have portions of it operational by spring 2019, with it fully functional by 2021. We would like to discuss ways we can use your products in the various aspects of this project. This project will have perma culture beds as well as a Walipini. Livestock will be limited due to the size limitations. We also plan to have Aqua and Areo ponic systems, as well as mycology, vermiculture, and biodigestors in operation. As well as classes, workshops, and packages of programs for individuals and families to come and experience off grid living. This 5 bedroom 2 bath farm house is being remodeled to better service these needs. With four of the rooms, and several hammock spots on the decks overlooking the river, and potentially a RV spot with hook ups, and several tent sites being planned, being availible to persons wanting to come, stay, and learn about off grid, sustainable ways to live and produce food. The one additional bedroom is being converted to a caretakers / farm managers quarters.
“If You care about what you eat… NOW is the time to get involved!”-Ethan The Farmer, Founder Get To Know Your Farmer
This project has two key purposes:
- Number one being to provide a location, platform, and knowledge to assist with those considering this lifestyle either for themselves on a small scale or for those farmers wanting to go from conventional agriculture to sustainable to come and learn hands on. The packages of workshops and activities will be customized based on who and what the needs of the group that is there at the time.
- Number two being to provide a place of respite and renewal for farmers, families, and others involved in areas we are passionate about. A Place for them to come and relax and enjoy the river and natural surroundings, while eating good home made food (most grown on site- or bartered for). We envision this facility operating year round, with snow activities availible in the winter. When we have openings in the booking schedule we will offer those slots to Air bnb type people to assist with off setting the ongoing costs of this facility.
If you have any thoughts on how we could work together on this project / program please feel free to let us know.
As always we rely on your donations to fund all of these many programs: Please consider supporting us here Thank You
