Our Model

Community Agriculture (CA) Model

Enjoy delicious ripe healthy food that you helped grow by committing one days work a month throughout the growing season.

Imagine having access to a farm where you can gather on weekends with your loved ones to collaboratively grow food, share meals, make art and dance!

Imagine an environment where children can roam freely and find joy playing in nature and its elements.

Imagine adults finding the time and trust to authentically connect to their needs and desires with support from a community that helps them grow, heal, and navigate their challenges.

Imagine the entire community planting and harvesting food, enjoying communal meals, and having excess harvest to take back to the city.

Making such a vision viable and compatible with city living is the objective of our Community Agriculture (CA) initiative at Abundance Community Farm.


Our Community Agriculture (CA) members come to the farm a minimum of one weekend a month throughout the growing and harvesting season. We spend time working in the garden, planting and harvesting food. We also share meals, tell stories around the fire, play music and dance in the barn. The families who come to the farm each weekend take produce back to the city for themselves and the other members.

We believe this is a replicable model that allows city dwellers to use nearby land to grow food and build community. You can learn more about our CA model here.

We have also planted a food forest as part of our CA initiative. A food forest is an ecosystem of fruit and nut trees and shrubs that work in synergy and require minimum input and maintenance. Our food forest includes ~150 fruit and nut tress, as well as berries, vines and other perennials. These trees, once mature, will provide our community with much greater abundance!
