GENERAL INQUIRIES

Is the Farm open to the public?

The Farm is not open to the public. We appreciate your respect for the privacy of the family and friends who reside on the property. If you are interested in visiting, please join our mailing list to find out about visitation opportunities. :)

Can I bring my pet?

Because the Farm is already host to a herd of cows, three cats, and many other wild creatures, we cannot host any additional pets on site.

All are welcome at the Farm. If the workshop speaks to you, you are eligible! Please note, there is no poetry pre-requisite for attending. We ask only that you come open and excited by poetry's relationship to your practice. 

What is a day at the workshop like?

It is up to the instructor how they want to structure the week. You can expect a combination of "class" time and independent work time.

What are the living and work spaces like?

All participants are given a private bedroom; multiple large, shared work spaces; a large vegetable garden; and abundant property to roam. There is one shared bathroom, in addition to an outhouse. The Kesey barn, in which you will stay, was converted into the family home in the 70’s and remains with limited and funky, but colorful infrastructure. 

Is food provided for residents?

Yes! We are very lucky to have two on-site chefs cooking three farm-to-table meals per day. Most veggies come from our garden or nearby farms.

Is there a cost to participate?

There is a tuition fee for the workshop. If this is prohibitive to you, please let us know, and we will do our best to help with financial assistance.

What am I paying for? 

Your tuition helps cover basic overhead, compensation for the workshop leaders, and three thoughtful meals per day.

The nearest airport, bus, and train hub is in Eugene, Oregon. From there, we are happy to help arrange rides to and from the Farm. We can also provide driving directions as needed
