We are long past the threshold where we can cut mature forests any more on this planet. No amount of economic pressure can justify this action anymore. For our children and our children's children we must protect our mature forests so they can once again become primeval. #friendsofbigivy #wearethefuture

Kids wrote and helped produce this 8-minute video to show why they love Pisgah and want to see more of it protected. They screened it for the first time at today's rally.

This is crazy! Great to see what happens, however, when our beautiful stream wakes up!

CATASTROPHIC RAINFALL: If you live in Western NC, you don't need us to tell you that you have had a lot of rain. These rainfall amounts are unbelievable we are lost for words, rainfall amounts that have not been seen in over 12 years since Hurricane Ivan. Here is rainfall amounts for a couple of Western NC counties over the past 15 days, these rainfall amounts are extremely impressive.This is 40% -50% of your yearly rainfall amounts in just 15 days.

It is incredible how much green has sprung in the last few days. Most starkly I can see how the nature of the light as it plays on the Stream has changed dramatically. Where it felt more open and connected to the outside world around it before, it now has the feel of a secret place, hidden under leaf. This place continues to blow my mind everyday.

We are happy to announce that we are seeking someone to be the farm manager. Our land is already certified organic, has a hoop house frame, ample sunlight and abundant water!

We are looking for someone with a permaculture background, ideally with an understanding of biodynamics, hugelkultur, soil microbiology and more. Most important is a passion for the work. Rob Lenfestey, owner here is trained in each of these so can educate the right person in the necessary skill sets if necessary. most important is the deep connection to nature, farm/garden experience and a desire to help co-create a thriving organic business. this will involve regular farmer's markets, dedicated energy to this project and more.

There are some funds available to create necessary infrastructure for this. Aside from the water systems, land and hoop house frame this is a raw project ready for the right creative touch.

Existing housing infrastructure is essentially non existent but options exist for potential tiny homes and other options. Terms of stay and farm creation/management are fully negotiable!
