Bio-Dynamic, Restorative Agriculture
Our Mission/Vision for Ballygrennan Farm (Gaelic for “Place of the Sun”) is to create a space where the balance between humans and nature is restored through regenerative and biodynamic farming practices, agricultural and spiritual connections, and agricultural educational demonstrations. We would like to share our future home with family and friends for educational purposes, and grow into sharing with the public in the future. We will have demonstration crops for water recapture, sustainable practices for composting and food growth, yarn making, olive pressing, woodworking, and other future agricultural-related practices for teaching purposes. Our goal is to stay small, yet inspiring.
Our Goal is for Ballygrennan Farm to be a living example of biodynamic and regenerative agriculture for educational purposes. We hope to form partnerships with Pleasant Valley Roots, Solano County Office of Education, Vacaville Unified School District, and Waldorf Schools throughout the world. Ultimately we would love access for students of all ages, backgrounds, and cultures to have a place to learn and grow. We will have demonstration crops for water recapture, sustainable practices for composting and food growth, walking trails with educational monuments about native plant/animal life, classes for yarn making, olive pressing, woodworking, and other future agricultural related practices for teaching purposes. Farm animals will be raised for traits that complete the regenerative lifecycle.
Our Passion is to create a space away from the noise. Something sacred. A place that gathers the energy force of life and mirrors what we want to see in the world. To educate families by creating experiences where children and adults can connect to nature. We would like the land to be an example development with a small carbon footprint. Composting toilets, solar energy, well water treated with UV light, wildflowers, gardens, simplicity, beauty, purpose. This property has the potential to become something humanity needs, and at some deep level, we have all been yearning for. A place for inspiration. A place for philosophy. A place for learning. A place to connect to our agricultural roots and in turn, our roots as spiritual beings in our human experience.
