Group in search of private land sale to develop organic farm, permaculture food-forest and community managed old-growth forest.
We are a group of citizens, farmers, timber framers, foresters, designers, teachers, artists, seniors and parents.
We are in search of a private land sale to help facilitate the rezoning application process.
We are hoping to preserve or add to the Agriculture Land Reserve with hopes of it being on the edge of forested land that can be turned into a woodlot, return to old-growth and become part of a trust to remain as part of the remaining old growth on Vancouver Island.
Due to the rising cost of land and the increasing difficulty to maintain a farm's ability to produce food, we have researched several current land development models to help with this difficulty.
The model we are pursuing will allow us, with zoning and community approval, to incorporate multiple dwellings that do not infringe on the arable or forested land.
The group is also open to building into the trust the ability for the previous land owner to age positively on the land for the rest of their days.
Please contact Michael Hollihn at BLSP - Cowichan.
