Spring Meeting 2019

April 6-7

Fulcrum Farm

14995 Clear Creek Place

Grass Valley, CA

(415) 665-9574

Our Hosts are: Marney Blair and Lisa Bjorn

Marney Blair and Lisa Bjorn run Fulcrum Farm, a 20-acre farm in the Sierra Foothills. A fulcrum is a point of balance, and over the last 20 years this duo has worked toward creating a place that is life-supporting for farm animals, wild animals, human animals, and domestic and wild plants. In the past the land supported a CSA that included dried beans, edible seeds, and fermented products. Nature is never static though, and so the farm and what she produces has continued to evolve. Currently they provide milk, fruit, and compost to their community.

Picture of Seed

The farmer puts seeds into harmony
Of cosmic/earthy chaos to imprint
Plant beings into life by enlivening
The soil with the preparations to balance
The calcium earth and silica,
The thin sheath over all surfaces
(hair, grass) that tones the cosmic influences
on all beings.
— Devon Strong, 2000

FINAL Schedule TBA
