OUR CSA Food Box
Join in the MAGIC of OUR Weekly Educational CSA Box Program!
Each week you will receive nutritious surprises based on the current growing season. Fresh fruits and vegetables, eggs and legumes ready for pick up or delivery by OUR Farm Team!
Observe OUR land in any season and deepen your ecological understanding through the practice of permaculture.
The courses at OUR Ecovillage are a life changing experience for everyone who attends. I mean it. The comprehensive thinkers, designers, and builders on team have a serious specialty or two to share with you.
They will take care of you.
OUR is a fantastic place because when you’re here permaculture is all around you: you’re living it and seeing it in the gardens & natural buildings. Many people come into permaculture with a dream of founding a community or an ecovillage and here – they’ve actually done it.
OUR is committed to modelling & sharing the future we all need. Whether you stay for an hour or a decade, a piece of the village goes with you – and a piece of your heart stays there. Deepest bows to all who work to evolve this important community space.

“It is probable that the next Buddha will not take the form of an individual. The next Buddha may take the form of a community, a community practicing understanding and loving kindness, a community practicing mindful living. This may be the most important thing we can do for the survival of the earth.”
