We have applied for Emergency Watershed Protection funding, and although we qualify, there are no actual funds available at this time, or anytime in the near future...
So we are asking you to help us continue the goals of decentralized rural living and support local organic agriculture by making a financial donation and/or coming to a work party.
To those of you who rely on us for fresh organic food, rest assured that we will be growing our crops this year. We are extending our water system upstream to where the water flows normally. This will be costly and labor intensive, but we are committed to keeping our farm growing, and our livelihood intact. We thank you for your support and for any assistance you can offer.
To those who enjoy Tolstoy as a place to come and get away from it all, to participate in potlucks, parties, visit family, birdwatch, pick strawberries, collect herbs or go hiking, we are happy to share this beautiful land with you. Please share with us however you can to overcome these hardships.
