Do you love ducks? We have EIGHT.

We have a Magpie and Black Runner pair that had a very fertile spring and summer. Every time we turn around a new flock of ducklings emerged from a new thicket. It was adorable and we have already found so many wonderful homes for many of the offspring. The final 6 ducklings (now full grown and laying age) need a home. They are all lady hens.The mom hen and poppa drake are barely two years old and also need a loving forever home. Excluding the ma and pop they were all born here on our farm and…See More

Profile Information

About Me:
Grew up with Cayce principles. Most recently spent a summer at the Reevis Mountain School of Self Reliance. I, with my partner, live on nearly an acre lot in South Central Phoenix where we raise chickens, ducks, turkeys and a small herd of dairy goats. We practice grey water harvesting and raised bed 'our'ganic farming, and are learning ways to harvest rain water and build better soils. We prefer whole system approaches and have learned how to turn most of our waste into resource. We hope to expand our gardening efforts to a community garden downtown.

Organic Preschool needs pumpkins donated for Halloween

Natural Choice Academy is an organic preschool in northern Phoenix. They are looking for donated or discounted pumpkins for their preschoolers to carve Wednesday. Anyone know of a place that might be willing to make a contribution? If yes, please give me a call!

Thanks.

I'm so sorry I missed your pot luck.  I was telling my wife Heather about you and that you spent some time out at Reevis because she is spending next weekend out there.  Could we come by on a weeknight sometime and see you place?  I would still like to be a part of your efforts to establish your downtown community garden!  Hope to see you soon!
