Blue Heron Farms

From their website:

“Blue Heron Farms is a 20-acre certified organic farm operating in a small sheltered valley in Corralitos, California, that is passionate about growing a diverse array of high quality vegetables and flowers.

Blue Heron was started in 1985 by Dennis Tamura after studying gardening with Alan Chadwick in the 1970s and running the U.C. Santa Cruz Farm & Garden Apprenticeship Program for several years.  Now operated by him and his wife Lori Perry, Blue Heron is driven by the hard work of a wonderful group of workers from Jalisco and Michoacan, Mexico, a passionate flower crew under the leadership of long-time field and market worker Kelly Brown, as well as a dedicated market staff.

The farm is additionally blessed with a cool climate, soft soil, and surrounding live oaks and habitat that is home to deer, bobcats, and coyotes.  Although the work is demanding, we at Blue Heron are fortunate to be farming on the Central Coast, where people value organics and we can sell directly to loyal farmers market customers, chefs, grocery stores, florists and wedding couples.”

How to adapt soil to support diverse plants:

According to modern researchers and indigenous Amazonians, the most assured way to produce fertile, drought-resistant soil that supports biodiversity is to compost biowaste with “biochar,” AKA activated charcoal that is produced from heating biomass.

Biochar compost has been studied to effectively remediate soil of heavy metals, improve its moisture retention, and increase growth, health and yield of plants.

By tending our local environment, we create free resources to be enjoyed by generations to come.

Check out the effects of biochar soil remediation at the Here There gardens!

I am…

…a pregnant nudist fruitarian who strives for a world where we take time to remediate soil, sow seeds, and enjoy a simple life of creative motion and roaming, eating free fruits and resting in earthen shelters.

About Leela Maps

I designed Leela Maps with the dream of providing an abundant world of automated luxury. Upon closer examination, I discovered that the resources that I was hoping to acquire and share were produced in unethical and unsustainable ways, and that people who were living without economic pressures would not choose to produce them.

After regrounding into the study of naturally growing resources, I found new value in the Leela Maps project for the purpose of cataloguing the effects of soil remediation and diverse growing arrangements.

You can see a lot more of my notes in the iOS app version.
