مزرعة Red H للأصناف غير المهجّنة

Red H Farm is located in Sebastopol, California on the western coast of the United States of America. Red H Farm is owned and operated by Caitlin Hachmyer, a 32-year old woman. The 0.6 hectare farm exists between two parcels of land. The first, core parcel is 0.3 hectares of land which is owned by her family. The second is an additional 0.3 hectares located at the Permaculture Skills Center (PSC), an educational and entrepreneurial space in Sebastopol where Caitlin works as an instructor in a farmer-to-farmer educational program called Farm School. The main greenhouse sits on a third parcel of land.

The agroecology system at Red H Farm integrates both traditional and modern practices that stem from traditional agroecological values. The land stewardship practices at Red H Farm focus on soil health, water conservation and biodiversity. Red H Farm implements no-till agriculture, which relies on using compost and wood chips to mulch beds and pathways respectively. Caitlin farms bio-intensively and works to make her systems reflect and work with nature as much as possible. While around 100 different annual crop varieties are grown at Red H Farm, there is an additional current focus on creating more harvestable, native perennial hedgerows that will create increased habitat and provide an even more diverse harvest at the home farm.
