This is an organic farm, community and education center that is off the grid and uses no fossil fuels. We grow most of our own food, and also grow organic vegetable seeds which we sell to a local seed company, Southern Exposure Seed Exchange.

Our community and farm are powered by the sun and farm-grown biofuels. We have developed a unique DC micro-grid that we actively promote to other groups and communities as an economical alternative to grid power and fossil fuel. We are continuing to improve our systems for fossil-fuel-free farm traction and cooking.

We host interns and work exchangers year-round. Work is usually agricultural from May to October, and technological projects the rest of the year. Kids are welcome. Interns and volunteers donate 30 hours of work per week in exchange for room, board and educational opportunities.

We are part of a network of egalitarian and income-sharing communities in Louisa County that includes Twin Oaks and Acorn Communities.
