Linnaea Farm Society

BC, Canada organic food farm.

An ecological agriculture oasis on Cortes Island: offering workshops, family farmstays, CSA and farm stand, agricultural internships, coop guild membership for islanders, weekly market sales, and education.

In 1978, the title for Linnaea Farm was transferred to "Trust for Public Land," a charitable land trusting organization based in the US. "Trust for Public Land" in turn transferred the title, with certain restrictions, to Turtle Island Earth Stewards, a BC society to manage as a no-sale land trust.

Linnaea Farm, which currently consists of 314 acres, has always been important to the history and development of the Cortes community. Produce from the gardens has been sold and traded, milk was delivered while the dairy was in operation, and camps with horse-riding activities were available to young people of Cortes and beyond.

Linnaea Farm Stewards continue to feed and educate the Cortes Island community and opening up the farm for organizations such as The University of Victoria Permaculture and Power of Hope.
