Here’s a great resource we just discovered!  For your Nevada County greenhorns in CA. Living Lands Agrarian Network is a non-profit organization that offers training and mentorship to the next generation of farmers.
Our unique model of cooperative farming integrates ecological education, community involvement, resource sharing, and celebration around the food we grow right here in our neighborhoods.  We practice and promote localized ecological farming for the profound effect it has on ourselves, our neighbors and the planet.

Learn more about the impact of our work here.

We are farmers. We plant, nurture, harvest, and process vegetables, grains, dry beans, chickens and small livestock. We facilitate the work of interns and volunteers who support farm production. We teach gardening in the community and in Nevada City schools.

We are interns and volunteers
, here to help and to learn. Growing food is our passion, too, and through our service we make friends, share meals, and grow as individuals and community.

We are land owners. We recognize the potential of our backyards, in providing food to Nevada County. We appreciate the dedication of farmers, interns, and volunteers as they transform the soil of our pastures into “Living Lands.”

We are businesses. We embrace local food and distribute it to the community as part of our enterprise. We are restaurants: New Moon, Ike’s Quarter Cafe. We are the Nevada City Farmers Market: Saturday mornings, June-October. We are the Soil Sisters CSA: Offering subscriptions of vegetables and flowers.
