Gardening outside the lines.

Based on the permaculture ethic of Fair Share, Satoyama Homestead accepts in-kind and voluntary donations for our public events. 

Compensation for private events is negotiated on a case-by-case basis.

Satoyama Homestead is incorporated as a 501(c)(5) agricultural and horticultural non-profit organization, and your donation is tax-deductible.  Please let us know if you need a receipt!
