Permaculture & Forest Garden

Wild Habitats for Creativity

Spring Wind farm was purchased November 2019 by the Buddhist Society for Compassionate Wisdom, a North American Buddhist Order founded by Korean Zen Master, the Venerable Samu Sunim. The farm, located in Clermont, New York, is 114 acres of woods, fields, pastures, a large creek (Roeliff Jansen Kill), streams, ravines, barn buildings and a farmhouse.

The farm used to be a place for dairy cows and Black Angus cattle, and its fields were conventionally cultivated many decades for growing feed corn, soybeans and alfalfa. 

"O Waters! Wash us, me..." As soon as you arrive at the farm, your busy thinking mind will be halted by the sound of waters and your heart will be glad to be here. We envision the farm will become an organic permaculture tree crop farm. As well as a farm, we dream habitats for wild life, an arboretum of magnificent trees, wild flower meadows, sugar bush, cabins in the woods. We dream on!
