Describe yourself, your family, background, farming experience, philosophy, goals and interestsWe are a non-profit organization whose mission is to build a strong community system that fosters socially just ways of accessing food. We believe that sharing the act of planting seeds, growing food, harvested and eating that food as well as saving seeds is become more and more a radical act! We have to continue to share this with children and our community.
Describe the physical setting of your farm and the nature of the community in which you liveWe maintain two gardens. The Wildcat Garden located at the Columbia Falls Junior High is 1/2 acres and boasts 49 fruits trees, raised and inground beds as well as classroom space and soon an outdoor kitchen. The Healing Garden at North Valley Hospital has a native plant and orchard area coupled with raised beds.

The gardens are maintained for Vegetable and Fruit production, pollinator space and seed saving. We use organic practices in both spaces. We do not currently sell any products, we use the produce for the Hospital Cafe and the School Snack Program.
