Who: On Sacred Ground Land Trust is a permaculturally-based land trust with an aim to heal, educate, steward and provide a Garden of Eden for generations to come. We work with all property types – residential, industrial, wilderness or otherwise, and apply site-specific permaculture assessments to steward the land appropriately that is inclusive to humans and working toward a mutually beneficial relationship.
Our funding campaign is our start-up booster for our first property
purchase and land trust kick-off. We have our eye on a riverfront
parcel in Skagit Valley, Washington state, where flood mitigation infrastructure will
teach natural disaster preparedness and relief techniques, we can
host workshops on all manner of permaculture topics, grow a 2 acre
food forest, and provide a seasonal hike-in, bike-in & boat-in
campground within walking distance to public transportation. We also
endeavor to purchase a waste veggie oil/biodiesel powered fleet
vehicle & centrifuge/filter system for our non-profit for land
trust and consultation site visits and Americorps volunteers.
Our unique non-profit land trust model returns humans to ecological
systems by pairing permaculture with typical land trust missions and
activities. We are taking the next step and ensuring that
“hands-off” as a stewardship technique is appropriate for
wilderness or Zone 5, but that humans are necessary as nudging
caretakers for high-yield food, fiber and medicine production by
designing within the ecological landscape's mature, peak systems. We
will also provide affordable intentional community opportunities to
those interested in participating as stewards for our land trust
properties, with a focus
on youth whose income to outflow ratio in today's economy makes
housing and education astronomical. Our
property stewards will shift from industry based lifestyles and
economy to one of stewardship techniques, farm apprenticeships, community service, and living economies for future generations.
