April Homestead Tour in West Asheville

April 14 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Organic Growers School’s new series of Homestead Tours showcases how home-growers in Western North Carolina (WNC) are transforming their land into thriving, productive, and resilient ecosystems. Our goal is to inspire you to embark on your own homesteading journey by providing an opportunity to tour a working homestead. Tours occur once per month, each time at a different homestead, and they are always followed by an optional group potluck!

Kelly Lockamy owns Cedar Spring Farm in West Asheville, where she grows a variety of medicinal herbs and perennial vegetables, cultivates mushrooms, raises chickens, keeps bees, and is experimenting with flower production. Kelly uses permaculture design principles in her gardens and spring-fed pond, and her home features a solar shower and indoor composting toilet. Kelly has also hosted WWOOF interns for the last three years, and she welcomes AirBnB guests to stay in a renovated apartment adjacent to her home.
