Farm

CWCW FARM hosts a working produce farm that uses Biodynamic practices. The farm is a source for healing and nourishing foods, for educational and therapeutic purposes for our visitors and also as a funding stream through the sale of produce and in the sales of cottage-industry products at local markets and restaurants.

Elements of the farm include:

  • Outdoor seasonal vegetable, herb, and flower garden.
  • Greenhouse for winter gardens.
  • Beekeeping to come soon
  • Free-range chickens/eggs

Growing Biodynamic food promotes a less toxic environment for all living things. With only 0.5 percent of crop and pasture land in organic, according to USDA that leaves 99.5 percent of farm acres in the U.S. at risk of exposure to noxious agricultural chemicals.
Industrial agriculture doesn’t singularly pollute farmland and farm workers; it also wreaks havoc on the environment downstream. Pesticide drift affects non-farm communities with odorless and invisible poisons. Synthetic fertilizer drifting downstream is the main culprit for dead zones in delicate ocean environments, such as the Gulf of Mexico, where its dead zone is now larger than 22,000 square kilometers, an area larger than New Jersey, according to Science magazine, August, 2002.
Our bodies are the environment so supporting organic agriculture doesn’t just benefit your family, it helps all families live less toxic.
