It is a well-established urban homestead, organic, built with permaculture principles. Our orchard, vegetable gardens, and greenhouses feed our family every month of the year. 20 years of organic, biodynamic, permaculture and sustainable living practices have developed amazingly rich, bio-active, fertile soil that makes everything thrive.

What makes your home a Green or Healthy Home?
Natural skylight and airflow system keep the house warm in winter and cool in summer naturally with sun or shade. Skylights are also designed for natural sun lighting which provides beautiful lighting and low heating/cooling bills. Newly installed $50,000 worth of solar panels to keep your electric bill low.
Our home is built with ecological, environmental principles. All the finishes in the house are non-toxic, natural or food grade. Nothing outgases toxins in our home. Even the laundry room is outside the living quarters for air purity indoors. We have only ever cleaned with food grade cleaners. Our positive pressure air filtration and circulation system triple purifies the air with a HEPA filter that stops dust, pollen or allergens from entering from crevices through the walls, doors, and windows (it’s the same technique as clean rooms). Our sophisticated whole-house water filtration systems ensure healthy water in every faucet and shower in the home.
Our utility bills are low. We have a grey water system; additionally, our orchard uses a permaculture-based system of collected rainwater underground to deep water the roots of the fruit trees and the garden beds. This system ensures well-hydrated deep soil year round with the rains which keeps soil bio-active, and also encourages roots growing deeply where they find constantly stable food and moisture supply year round. Our newly installed solar system covers the electricity for the house. Our large trees keep the yard and house shady and cool in summer, but sunny and warm in winter. Our yard grows much of our food, so the quality of our food is very high, but the bill low.
