Dear Readers: I’ve created a new category especially for my local readers here in Douglas County, Nevada. Here you will find current information on the farm-to-table project approved by the Douglas County Board of County Commissioners in 2016 and which is now in the early stages of construction in Gardnerville.
Imagine yourself in your own home, waking up a few minutes after sunrise. It’s early spring; planting season in Carson Valley. Time for coffee and hand watering your newly planted seedlings in the raised beds steps away in your back yard. There’s a community barn within walking distance, already bustling with activity in preparation for classes on soil health, planting perennials, and how to cook, prepare and preserve vegetables harvested in the fall. You and your neighbors plan to gather for a potluck dinner at the community barn in the early evening, and then take a short walk on nearby trails that stretch throughout the neighborhood. The day would not be complete without a leisurely tour of the sprawling community vegetable gardens, strawberry and raspberry bushes, and the nearby orchards full of apple, pear, peach and cherry trees. Soon, these fresh fruits and vegetables will be in your kitchen and on your own dinner table at home.
Sounds wonderful, doesn’t it? This is an example of the farm-to-table concept envisioned by the developers of the Farmstead at Corley Ranch. The land for this project was recently acquired by a local builder now working on entitlements and obtaining permits necessary to make the farm-to-table lifestyle a reality right here in Douglas County.
You can read more about the Farmstead at Corley Ranch in an article I posted on this website and also here: https://www.dterralaw.com/wp-content/uploads/CVT-Special-Edition-Vol.-6.pdf
