Seedling in the Wind Micro-Farm ~ Opening Spring 2018

Rather than fighting the world we reject, let’s use our knowledge, skills, insights, principle and techniques to create the world we do want. ~ Bill Mollison

We are so proud to announce that Seedling in the Wind Micro-Farm will open in Spring 2018. We are located in beautiful Central Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada.

Our micro-farm, as the words suggest, is a small-scale, family run operation. All plants and seeds have been carefully obtained from producers that exclusively use organic practices as well as heirloom AND non-GMO seeds only. We grow our plants and foods using ONLY organic growing practices and materials.  We use organic worm castings, bat guano, horse manure and our own organic compost.

Our Philosophy

Everything we need to nourish our bodies, minds and souls is found beneath our feet. The planet provides us with the medicine and nutrition we need for maintaining optimal balance in our bodies as well as for supporting recovery and return to a healthy balance.

Our Brief Story

We love all things sustainable, local and organic. As a family, we are nature enthusiasts, gardeners, photographers, hikers and now farmers. In early 2017, our family started an Urban Front Yard Farm Project. We turned our dry grass into a productive hugulkultur garden in order to grow food for us and our neighbours.

Our urban garden project included 360 square feet of growing space on our front suburban lawn. We wanted to know if this space could provide nutrient dense sustenance for a family of 5 over a 22 week growing season and beyond? We wanted to know if growing our own could save us money or even make money?

Once we started growing our own, we just couldn’t stop. In August 2017, basically on a whim and with the winds of synchronicity blowing, we sold our suburban home and bought a small acreage in a rural part of Vancouver Island all in the span of four weeks. It was a whirlwind AND we are happy to say we have settled in to our new place nicely.

We down-sized big time, shedding much of the stuff that was cluttering every corner of the old house – a truly liberating experience. We uprooted our garden beds from the front lawn and transferred them, rather unceremoniously, to our new garden, where most plants are once again thriving, still giving us tomatoes, cucumber and squashes.

Our dream is to farm, to grow and to nourish our bodies and the planet…so we started a farm…Seedling in the Wind Micro-Farm! We are the growers of Superfoods – plants that can help to create, maintain and restore balance.

We have been busy landscaping our family run, small-scale, organic farm and planting all kinds of berries and herbs as well as growing a new (to us) kind of superfood that will be ready in the spring. Stay Tuned.

We are off on a new and exciting adventure and we hope that you will visit us when we open in Spring 2018!
