Golden RodOne of the basic principles of self sufficiency and resilience is the abilility to feed yourself. As long as you've got money and the store's open that's how most people do it.  If you've got a garden it takes some investment of money to start it and a considerable investment of time to maintain it.  And yet, most people overlook or even scoff at the idea of harvesting food from the wild.  Food and medicine, that you don't have to invest anything more than harvest and prep time to get.  We think that's wasteful so we'd like to show you what you've already got on your land.

Last fall we began working to transform a hillside cow pasture, over run with sumac and ragweed, into a system of terraced planting spaces that utilizes the rain water that had been rutting out our road to irrigate the field.  Nick named Terrace Heights; the system currently includes 2 swales, a collection pool and 4 terraces.
