Linnaea Farm is a beautiful land trust on Cortes Island, B.C. Situated on the edge of Gunflint Lake, it comprises 315 acres of rich forests, fields, gardens, and orchards.
It is here that a small group of adults and children have chosen to live, work the land, and learn together ways of putting their vision of personal and earth stewardship into practice. These resident stewards operate a small, experimental organic farm. In addition to several gardens of annual and perennial vegetables, herbs, berries and ornamentals, there are 30 acres of pasture and hay fields with cows, horses, sheep, chickens, and bees.
In keeping with the mandate of the Linnaea Farm Society the resident stewards also operate an ecological garden programme, an alternative school for island children, and workshops for skills in sustainable living using the rich resources of Linnaea Farm.
