Welcome to Dream Life Farms
We want to turn this piece of land into an all organic all sustainable agriculture producing community garden. Not only will Dream Life Farms be a community garden, but it will be a “Teaching” community garden where people can learn everything they need to know about growing organically.” We also want to donate as much of the food grown to local food banks, shelters, low income families, and others who really need it.
We need to obtain the land, take down the dilapidated barn, prep the land for all the raised veggie beds, and reuse all the barns wood and fencing pieces to build it with. Nothing will be wasted and everything will be reused that is currently on the site. Dream Life Farms will be a ZERO waste operation.
We want to do this for a slew of reasons. First and foremost, it gives people of all ages, from school kids to adults, a chance to learn how to grow food locally, organically, and sustainably. Secondly, it means we can help our communities get good, locally grown, organic food instead of the canned food that normally gets donated. Third, it gives a chance for communities to get together for an amazing goal of helping each other. A community that grows together grows closer together. And the list goes on and on…
We hope to do some amazing things, but we need your help to do them. We want to buy the plot of land to set up this garden. We want to actually own it, as opposed to renting it from the current owner, that way we can ensure that we maintain control of it to keep Dream Life Farms in the communities forever, and not just for an allotted time period we've been allowed. We also want to work with schools located near these gardens to allow school children to have field trips based around learning about organic local growing. This is a movement we feel very strongly about, and we want to make sure future generations realize just how important it is.
But That's Only The Beginning!
If we can make this site work we are going to expand, EVERYWHERE! That means these gardens will start popping up first in cities in Contra Costa County, then the neighboring counties, then ALL of California. We have had so much interest in the project, and we are so lucky to have so many people want to make this happen. Together, we can do this and usher in a new age or organic natural growing and living.
