For five years, Yakima Beach has offered unique opportunities for visionaries, healers, students, teachers, artists, scientists, chefs, growers and explorers of all kinds. We're now opening up our learning environment to a broader community and inviting you to partner with us by becoming our Patron.

Our 12-acre farm functions as a learning community and land-based incubator for entrepreneurs who are guided by ethics and values of permaculture in their decision making. What are the ethics and values of permaculture? Here's an illustration from NorCal Community Resilience Network.


How does Yakima Beach operate?

We combine DIY skills with DIT (Do it together!) values, shared resources and an environment that supports and encourages learning in our own neighborhood and beyond. Here's what that looks like in action:



We host young farmers on our land, and individuals and groups in our guest house. We curate a permaculture and human rights lending library; cultivate native, medicinal and tea gardens; grow food; upcycle compost from the community, and offer classes that help deepen our connection to the plant world and our shrub-steppe ecosystem. Our goal is to be the best land stewards we can be, while honoring the systemic health and wellbeing of all of our valley's residents--past, present, future, flora & fauna.

With enough investment, we'll become a community-funded learning center, offering by-donation DIY skills, sustainability and wellness classes to the community on site, and a monthly learning supplement to our online community. Each partner is deeply valued. There really is no way we can do all of this without the help of our village. We work hard to leverage your dollars to create more art, people, food & fun. If you have questions about our goals or ideas for projects, partnership, classes or collaboration, please don't hesitate to let us know. If you're an artist who'd like to get involved, let us know that, too! We'd love to meet you.

Hire help for guest house maintenance:

"This is the most down to earth American experience I’ve had living here in the states. Enjoying the fruit of the land in a beautiful scape in a very American home was a blessing to say the least. Trust me, you’ll love it." --Lucas

With the help of too many people to mention here, we've been able to deliver a high standard of excellence to our guest house visitors. We feel proud of the experience people have at our home, and we're ready to hire an apprentice in the art of healing hospitality to handle the daily preparations and upkeep of this important piece of our business.
