This is in honour of the idea proposed by John D. Liu – Ecosystem Restoration Camps.
There are areas on the farm very close to water sources that have been designated for long terms stays, where an individual, couple or a group could ‘set up camp’ and work together with other short or long term campers to help care for and regenerate the land on and around the farm.
It is basically free camping in exchange for land care. You set up camp, and you look after your area.
- keeping their designated area clean and fireproof in summer.
- watering any trees that have been planted in the designated areas.
- collaborating with other members on farm projects that benefit the group as a whole.
There is also possibilities for long term campers to have a designated space assigned where they can create their own vegetable garden and grow their own food should they desire, or they can collaborate with other members on collaborative seasonal gardens on the farm.
If it’s, feasible (within my means) and necessary, I can offer the possibility of providing some finances towards food if it’s necessary but please bear in mind that I do operate with minimal funding myself so that would be dependent on what funds I have available at the time and whether any special agreements are made.
If you wish to find out more about designated spaces then please get in touch so that we can communicate about what’s available that could meet your requirements and how you or your group could work in synergy with the projects needs.
