This five-acre farm on Bainbridge Island is discovering a new model of agriculture supported community – ASC as compared to CSA, community supported agriculture.
Farmers or gardeners who have some experience are welcome to join as paying members and receive the support of our community, and the benefit of membership with earning power. Each membership and fee is tailored to the individual, depending on experience and needs. Interns are welcome but do not have the same benefits or membership options, however, they will receive training.
We have enough commercial produce buyers for what members might want to sell or don’t personally use. Currently, our produce can be found at Dharma Café on Bainbridge Island. The Farmers & Gardeners Guild also provides garden maintenance services, and landscape design consultations (both edible and/or ornamental) which are also available for members to participate in, depending on experience. Housing possibilities for members range from overnight stays to opportunities to live on, or near the farm.
Come and fulfill your farming desires and join our agricultural supported community (ASC). We provide a lifestyle and a chance to farm that is a fraction of the cost of doing it all on your own. Come farm with us, then you can decide if you want to do it on your own. Our community is varied and supportive – from serious farmers to those who grow for their families. We are a place for all ages to gather – from children to elders.
