Tomten Farm is a high-altitude, solar-powered, 'morganic' (more than organic, but not certified) farm at 9000' near Telluride, Colorado. We grow salad greens year-round in two greenhouses - a 1500 sq.ft. stick built greenhouse with a 3800 gallon water catchment system and a 33'diameter Growing Space Growing Dome. We grow vegetables outside in the summer. (which can be very short up here!) We appreciate our interns who help run the farm, as we all learn together. We grow some medicinal herbs and some wildcrafted herbs as we have 40 acres. It's an amazingly beautiful place and if we can teach folks how to grow food with our very short season and always cool temperatures - they'll be able to grow food anywhere. Lots of kids do farm tours through the local schools and summer camps and we love to have WWOOFers and others come visit, learn and work. We have a new farm manager in 2013 who has spent the last few years running the Student Farm at Michigan State University. Moving into aquaponics, mushrooms and much more in 2013.
High Altitude, Organic, Solar-powered, Permaculture Farm in beautiful SW Colorado near Telluride. Incredibly beautiful spot with opportunity for exploring right livelihood, sustainability, community resilience, aquaponics and much more. Owner is also Sustainability Coordinator for the region.
