Welcome to (Y)our Community!
Here at East of Eden we are always looking for ways to deepen and grow the farm-as-community. We want to be a HUB FOR LOCAL FOOD AND LOCAL COMMUNITY. That means in addition to growing and preparing delicious organic food, we want to be a space for community building events and classes, and generally work to provide our little corner of Whatcom county with fun, healthy, and inspiring stuff to do and eat - so we don't have to go "town" quite so often, and so we can rely on each other a bit more!
Our business plan is centered around building a farm center "barn" on the property, within the next three to five years. The building will have a certified kitchen, a farm store with produce and products from across the region, and a multipurpose space to host events and workshops that are meaningful and engaging for our local communities. In the meantime, before we have the resources and expertise to build this building, we hope to use the whole farm as our venue for community building; making creative use of the farm's outdoor spaces and natural features and getting people increasingly stoked about the amazing potential of our little corner of Whatcom county!
We've created a few informal events and classes for 2020 to get the ball rolling and stay connected. Please RSVP below. If you have suggestions for others or would like to be a facilitator or local expert, please get in touch. **And lastly, like everyone else we are just waiting to get the all-clear from state and local government to end the stay at home order and get back to gathering as community. Our (anticipated) first event is June 5, the "First Friday Farm Dinner-Potluck." We hope to see everyone there. In the meantime, stay well and see you on Patton Road!
