Be The Change

Lost Creek Micro Farm is a working urban farm providing seasonal, 

ultralocal food for all people.

We believe farms like ours can be the urban rule, not the exception.  

There's something reverent - grounding - humbling - motivating about placing a seed in soil and watching it grow.  

Between the furrows we find equal parts science and mystery, live in the space between control and surrender, 

and play roles that turn from participant to witness 

then back again.

Over the years, we planted ourselves into larger and larger gardens, adding bees, then chickens.  We learned lessons from the earth-stained hands of relatives, friends and guides;  gained encouragement from those who know our hearts and see we're at our best in the field; and stay inspired by hungry and curious neighbors.  

And when our kids and their friends ask for farm chores, we know we're on to something good!


Welcome to Lost Creek Micro Farm.

Visit us!  We may grow something you fancy.  You may be invited to eat a flower.

And if you're in the neighborhood and you see us in the field, 

give a little beep!beep! or a Hey you!
