Dancing TreePeople Farm

Organic Garden and Orchard

Welcome to Dancing TreePeople Farm, located in Upper Lake, California. Dancing TreePeople embraces the ethics and principles of permaculture. and organic growing.

Our 11 acre orchard is certified organic and has been producing walnuts for over 50 years, organically since 2000. Recent additions include an organic vegetable garden, a greenhouse, solar energy and natural building. We have also created a small scale permaculture food forest to experiment with new farming methods. Our products can be found at Lake County Farmers' Finest certified farmers' market.

We Start with the Soil
The first ethic of permaculture is "Care of the Earth" and so at Dancing TreePeople, we practice a gentle, no till agriculture that encourages natural systems to develop soil fertility.

We are initiating this process by allowing animals to graze in cycles with planting (to provide nitrogen) and by spreading straw for additional organic matter.

We use cover crops to prevent erosion and to retain soil structure.
From time to time, wild turkeys are found in the middle of our walnut orchard.

Natural Building

The second ethic of Permaculture is "Care of People." At Dancing TreePeople, we are planning a number of Natural buildings, beginning with simple structures and including a Straw and Cob cottage. From time to time we host workshops on the orchard.
