My Vision is to eventually manage a small sustainable community supported farm (CSA)that serves as a writer’s retreat and an education center.
The Community Supported Farm would provide vegetables, fruits and herbs for the center as well as for sale within the larger community. The farm would provide consistent employment for a local farmer as well as housing. Strong effort would be put forward to have local plants and to incorporate plants into water treatment.
The Writer’s Retreat Center would provide writers an opportunity and space to work as well as a community to gain support from. The writers would be expected to help in the farm community as payment for their room and board. Each writer would have a private living space and work space. An outdoor covered theater would serve as the presentation space and performances would be open to the public at designated times.
The Education Center would offer groups writing classes and courses about farms. The Center would be open at nominal charge to local school and community groups.
