About.

UpCycle Farm is a permaculture project in process. We cultivate medicinal plants, vegetables, fruit trees, and raise small animals. We cycle our nutrients on site and also reclaim waste materials to UpCycle in reuse projects. We are offering workshops on natural building, zero waste, medicinal plants, farm fertility, ancestral skills, solar installation, geodesic dome building, and more.

We have a variety of accommodations from a glamping dome, to a cob tiny home, to bunks on a veggie oil bus. Camping in your own tent is also an option. We have a community house with kitchen, shower, toilet, washing machine, wifi, musical instruments, and a permaculture library.

The farm is in a beautiful location overlooking vineyards and oak savanah rolling hills. We are a 1.5 hour drive from Giant Redwood Trees, Hot Springs, and Coastal Beaches. We are 20 minutes away from wine tasting at local vineyards, a solar living resource center, art galleries, a native basketry museum, and live music venues.

On Saturday we will have a 2-3 hour educational workshop that is open to the public and free to worktraders on the farm. Topics covered are - native plants and fire ecology, up cycling plastic waste, foods forests and fungi, geodesic domes with local wood poles, ancestral herbs, and olive curing.
