Farm Visits

Farm Visits

Welcome to the JustLiving Farm . Whether you are an individual needing a retreat, a small group looking to reconnect, or a college group looking for a fall or spring service opportunity, we will provide the opportunity to engage in conversations of landscape justice. During the last half century, the number of people living and working on farms has dropped to fewer than two percent of the American population. During a stay, your group has the opportunity remember the farm of their ancestors by experiencing the landscape through working and playing with soil, animals, and plants, by developing a keener sense of how their food is planted, and harvested; and, by learning to question themselves and their environment.

Family Farm Stay

The farm is available to families who want to spend a night or a week. Together with the family’s elders, we open the farm to opportunities to have youth and children engage in work and wonderment found on the farm. Or just provide space for families to center and have simple time together!  The farm provides tent space and limited RV space for visitors.  For more information please call Dave at 1-509-969-2093 or email at dave@justlivingfarm.org or fill out the form below to be place on our list to inform you about upcoming events and workshops.

Spring & Fall Break

JustLiving Farm offers Fall and Spring-Break opportunities. These, a couple hours to week-long, farm stays are structured in conversation with organizers to provide students the chance to engage in service opportunities tied to land justice. A typical week has students working at the local homeless shelter, working a forge and forming needed tools or implements for the farm, caring for animals, and having daily conversations on how justice occurs at the intersection of these topics and their academic major or career.  Each student is encouraged to ask questions of themselves and their colleagues of what justice looks like at the intersection of their life ambition. Regardless of a major or career, e.g., Business, Biology, Physics, Accounting, there is a tie to land justice.

Students currently have the choice of sleeping in one of the farm barns or off-farm. Breakfast and supper meals are at the the location where they stay.  Meals are cooked in community and folk at the farm will help students explore their foods origin, preparation, and consumption.
