DragonflyHill Urban Farm is an dynamic community of urban farmers, activists, artists and craftspeople, focusing on the cultivation of sustainable community connections and mutual support and aid. The Farm specializes in fruits, herbs and edible flowers and also has a small plot of seasonal vegetables. We provide working and meeting space, short term lodging, on site film location and a variety of services to the community, both in house and as services off site.
We love welcoming new people into our space. The Museum House has 2 room suites available for short term lodging. The farm also features a gazebo and the studio for short term residencies, meetings, performances and other gatherings.
DragonflyHill Urban Farm includes a 1913 Craftsman house (the Museum House) and the 1924 Studio, both of which suffered years of neglect and shoddy workmanship under absentee landlords. The premises have been fully restored through the collaborative work of local artists and craftspeople, and reflects the style of the era in which the house was built. The front of the house is full of roses, fruit trees and herbs. Fifteen rose varieties line the pathways. All rose varieties were selectively bred before 1913, consistent with the age of the house.
DragonflyHill Urban Farm includes the home and workplace of activists, artisans and craftspeople. The Museum House includes period design and furnishings. Both the Museum House and the Studios include innovative solutions to dis-ability (disability) access and reflects months of craftsmanship, research, and the extensive use of local vintage stores and Craigslist. The first floor is wheelchair accessible. The upper unit will be equipped with a stair lift.
