the farm

30 May

I have stumbled upon a gem on this little island I now live on.  Here on Cortes Island is a small school called Linnaea.

The Linnaea Ecological Gardening Program offers a thorough grounding in a small-scale organic gardening and farming, with the intent to impart an understanding of the values and practical skills of ecological land stewardship.  Students come here for a full growing season March to October and work there assigned plot of land while attending classes  like herbology, wildcrafting, and woodworking.

The school and its students are really lovely.  I wanted to share this special place with you and some pictures too.  Please check out the website linnaeafarm.org  for more information.
