Save Green Angel Garden

— filed under:

Green Angel Garden has quietly existed as the Long Beach Peninsula's only organic farm for more than 6 years. Apparently too quietly, since this well known secret is now in jeopardy of closing it's doors forever. The importance of a farm such as this is vital to the health of the community, and could serve as a great learning center for those wanting to explore the ancient and most modern ways to cultivate food.

Help Save The Long Beach Peninsula's Only Organic Farm

Green Angel Garden has quietly existed as the Long Beach Peninsula's only organic farm for more than 6 years. Apparently too quietly, since this well known secret is now in jeopardy of closing it's doors forever.  The importance of a farm such as this is vital to the health of the community, and could serve as a great learning center for those wanting to explore the ancient and most modern ways to cultivate food.

Proprietor Larkin Stentz, learned the dynamics of bio-intensive food production from the pioneers in the field and taught it to farmers in Central and South America before landing on the Long Beach Peninsula of Washington. In his 6 years he has completely changed the open landscape to suit his food production goals.

Green Angel Garden consists of two large greenhouses, a bio-dome, a windmill that powers the farm store and much of the farm, 2 composting toilets, a whole flock of chickens, a yoga studio, plenty of compost, weekly meditations, a self service farm store, a great old farmhouse, and so much more!

We can't afford to lose this vital community food source.

Green Angel Garden services the community with weekly food boxes - full of fresh, organic, locally grown produce - from our farm and other local farms around the community. The weekly boxes are called CSAs, which is short for Community Supported Agriculture.

Green Angel Garden grows many great vegetables, fruits and herbs on site, and teaches the fundamentals of bio-intensive farming to the community and visitors from all over the world. Come for a tour and see why Green Angel Garden Must be Saved!
