The Village on Sewanee Creek is a self-sustaining community on the beautiful Cumberland Plateau. As we build the community, we could use some help getting our organic community garden off the ground.
We are blessed with some wonderful amenities that make it a pleasure to grow food here. Like…. a 2,000 square foot high profile, heated green house, a catfish pond, the beginnings of a forest mushroom garden, fruit tree orchard, a wonderful amphitheater complete with a 22 foot wide outdoor movie theater and live performance stage. We raise chickens and rabbits. Miles of trails through our 500+ acre nature preserve complete with caves, waterfalls and rushing creek. We have an active online farmer’s market nearby in Sewanee at the University of the South.
We are experimenting with steel shipping container construction, off grid power generation (wood gasification and bio-diesel generators). There are lots of opportunities to learn sustainable living skills and possibly earn some land in the Village.
We will provide primitive shelter. You are welcome to all the produce you can grow to consume or sell under the Sewanee Creek brand. Go to my main website at www.sewaneecreek.com for photos and contact information or just email me at email@example.com.
