As part of our conservation efforts and in honor of our founder and avid #birder Stephen F. Caldwell, @betterfarm has partered with the @audubonsociety to designate six acres of the property here as protected #shrubland . For that initiative, we are working to expand the #featherededge of Better Farm's forests in order to create additional nesting grounds for the #goldenwingedwarbler and other native species.
Zen and the art of water features. #artbarn is getting awfully fancy... see you all at our grand unveiling at Better Festival 6/17! www.betterfarm.org/better-festival
Better Farm's library is home to more than 5,000 books spanning every genre.
A #composttoilet throne fit for royalty! Better Farm has two outdoor compost toilets utilizing a #humanure system of aging and composting its contents with hay and wood shavings over the course of a year to create healthy soil that retains water 30 percent more than regular old soil and turns "waste" into something environmentally beneficial. On the back of this system, runoff from the roof is collected in a 50-gallon drum that has been turned into an outdoor shower. Talk about #sustainability ! More like #commonsense 🌷
The Birdhouse Cabin at #betterfarm is powered by #solar and features two gravity-fed rainwater catchment systems. Inside are simple furnishings: a full-size bed, chest of drawers, clothes hooks, and murals of birds on the walls. The perfect nest for a weekend (or month-long!) getaway, this cabin is a favorite of visiting artists-in-residence.
