Sustainability

With respect for the earth that formed this gentle mountain, Lama strives to coexist with the animal and plant species that live here. While a connection to the land has been an integral piece of the Lama experience since its inception, a new orientation toward the tenets of permaculture began during the 1980’s. In the summer there are ripe apricot, peach, and plum trees to glean, along with plenty of fresh greens, herbs, tomatoes, squash, cucumber, runner beans, peas, and edible plant varieties of many kinds. We also participate in a local CSA for additional produce. Drinking water comes from Lama’s own mountain spring, and all grey water is recycled back onto the land. We get the majority of our electricity from the sun.
