We are NC Farm and Forage, a small homestead that started as a community re-wilding project focused on restoring the human-nature connection through land stewardship and regenerative gardening practices. Recently, we founded a local non-profit organization called NC Nature School 501(c)(3) to provide land-stewardship programs for children. We host the organization and other community enrichment programs at our Farm and Forage Homestead in Wake Forest, North Carolina. Our goal is to become a self-sustaining regenerative permaculture farm that lives in harmony with native wildlife, and use it to educate our family and community on how to live in harmony with nature. With this grant, we plan to acquire the necessary tools to begin restoring the land on our 2.3-acre property. Our plans include removing non-beneficial, invasive and non-native plants, preparing and beginning our self-sustaining food forest, restoring and building structures on the property, creating more accessibility, and creating learning spaces for the community and our non-profit organization’s educational programs.
