On our 17 acre farm, El Rancho, just 15 minutes inland from Mar de Jade, we practice sustainable, organic agriculture and provide opportunities for participating in responsible environmental leadership while fostering a sense of community. The products we grow include tropical fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, edible seeds and free-range eggs.
Our Mission is three-fold:
1. To grow abundant healthy, organic fresh produce to supply Mar de Jade Retreat Center and all community educational projects.
2. To provide an experience that educates our local farming community, which is dependent on mono-culture crops, pesticides and chemical fertilizers, on how to return to self- sufficiency and abundance by cultivating a wide diversity of nourishing foods with non-toxic farming methods.
3. To create employment and skill training for single mothers through an environmentally and economically sustainable process: transforming our locally grown food into market-ready products such as marmalade, peanut butter, dehydrated goods and in the future, beauty products.
