How do we bring together young organic farmers and wise energetic elders to form multigenerational retirement communities that farm?

“Roadmap to Generosity Farm” is a book about how to provide (1) aspiring young farmers with land and (2) energetic elders with a healthy and intellectually stimulating life to form thriving community farms.

A “Generosity Farm” is a community built around a farm and based on the principles of nature — diversity, interdependence, ecology. Generosity Farm will serve two primary populations — retirees and young farmers.  Active retirees are looking for alternatives to conventional retirement homes. Young farmers are looking for land and purpose. Both are looking for lives that are meaningful, productive, healthy, and equitable.
