Like everything else, the cost of farming has skyrocketed, and we have done our best to put our seed money to good use. We continue to reuse, repurposed and reclaimed as much equipment and material as possible. We've fashioned plows from scrap steel. We are milling lumber from redwoods scorched when the CZU Lightning Complex Fire burned over our land, giving them new life as benches, fence posts and stakes.

And, of course, we have a varied wish list of equipment, materials, and things that would fill in the gaps, boost our efficiency and productivity, and help make our vision a reality.

We appreciate any support you can give. Thank you in advance!

Alba Schoolhouse

    Built in 1896, the Alba School House, nestled in the redwoods near the top of Ben Lomond Mountain, was the last remaining one-room schoolhouse in the Santa Cruz Mountains, still in its original location and original configuration. Over the decades, it had been a school, an official branch of the Santa Cruz Public Library system, and, most recently, a community center where Karla taught most of her homesteading classes.

    For over a century, this little building -lovingly cared for and maintained - had served the residents of this remote mountain community until it was tragically lost to wildfire in August of 2020, along with over 900 homes.

    The rebuilding of the Alba School House means more to us than just the replacement of a structure, more than just restoring a beloved part of our history. It is the symbol of the re-birth of our devastated community, the touchstone of our healing.
