Permaculture-based eco-homestead located on the Nooksack River in Lynden.
Location: Nooksack River, Lynden
Latest Activity: May 31, 2013
Riverhaven is a community located on the confluence of Fishtrap Creek and the Nooksack River that is founded on Permaculture principles. The natural current of this place is pulling together a diverse group of people with a common vision of self resiliency, varied skills and talents, and a common respect for the Earth & her inhabitants. Current residents are Chris Testa & Cadence, Krista Rome, and Richard and Hilary Kauffman. We are just beginning, but are already growing and raising most of our own organic food and processing our own fuel (waste vegetable oil). Riverhaven is also the home of the Straight Vegetable Oil Co-op where members can share equipment and space and provide their own fuel. We will be teaching ongoing workshops on homesteading, Permaculture, and related skills- and we host informal visits and work parties frequently- so contact us if there is something you want to learn or share.

Congrats Krista and Chris, keep up the great work!
Chris and I had a very successful first day at the Lynden Farmers Market today. We had a beautiful, colorful booth full of lettuce, beets, garlic greens, garlic scapes, herbs, strawberries, peas, flaxseed, kale, chard, salad mix, sweet onions, carrots, celery, fava beans, herb starts, and apple trees! We looked like real farmers!! (wow, maybe we are real farmers) And there were lots of customers and a really fun atmosphere. It was such a great day.
