Seeds for the Next Generation

Quail Springs at the Crossroads


The Quail Springs Capital Campaign to Own the Land and Build the Future

In 2004, Quail Springs Permaculture secured 450 acres of land in the Cuyama Valley, with the generous support of a 12-year, zero-interest loan from a local family foundation. It is now time to repay our benefactors. We have a wonderful opportunity to more permanently secure this land for future generations.

We are at vital crossroads as a community in securing the 450-acre canyon of Quail Springs, that for the past twelve years has been serving as an innovative land stewardship demonstration site. Today, the life-giving springs are rejuvenating, even amidst the drought here in California, and countless people are being inspired around the world by this dynamic learning village that continues to plant seeds of hope towards an equitable and resilient future, through life-affirming youth mentorship, permaculture education, practical life experience, and community collaboration.

Seeds for the next Generation is our two-phase capital campaign. In Phase I, we need to raise $400k for our 450-acres (or $888 an acre), to pay off our loan for the land that comes due January 15, 2016. In Phase II, we will be raising $968k to enhance our vital infrastructure and build an essential multipurpose demonstration building.
