About Tree Frog Farm
Tree Frog Farm is a 2.75 acre micro
eco-farm and backyard wildlife sanctuary on Lummi Island overlooking
the San Juan Islands in north Puget Sound, Washington, USA. Lummi
Island is off the coast of Bellingham and Lummi Nation near the Canadian
border. It has a marine temperate climate with mild, rainy winters
and warm summers. We love it here because this climate is ideal for
nearly year-round gardening of perennial herbs and native plants.
It is not uncommon to find a few roses and hardy fuschsia blooming
in December and January.
John purchased Tree Frog Farm in 1976 as a homestead, garden and Nature/Human sanctuary. It is named after the nickel-sized bright green tree frogs that send up a chorus of creaky-door sounds in the woods and gardens. The land is a mix of mature evergreens (including grand fir, Douglas fir and western red cedar) and deciduous trees like red alder and bigleaf maple. Many of these are over one hundred feet tall. The understory is dominated by the many native wild berry shrubs and ferns for which this region is famous.
In 1999, Diana and John were guided by the Beings at Tree Frog Farm to offer products and services that promote health for humans and the environment. In 2000-01 Tree Frog Farm became a Washington State Department of Wildlife Certified Backyard Wildlife Habitat sacturary, Backyard Forest Steward with the State Department of Natural Resources and a Sierra Club/Project SeaWolf Salmon Friendly Landscape. Herb, rose and flower beds were added to the existing vegetable garden and apples trees. The native plant nursery is nestled into the forest edges and along the gardens. All products are grown chemical free and honoring the natural habitat and Beings present.
Our philosophy at Tree Frog Farm is one of kinship with and respect for all Life. We take care not to harm any creature. We use live traps to relocate mice and move slugs found in the gardens to sites set aside as sanctuaries where we provide old garden leaves for sustenance and shelter. We give notice to the worms (through the deva of worms) to vacate an area before we rototill.
We are registered as a wildlife sanctuary and as forest stewards by Washington state in recognition of the wildlife habitats that Tree Frog Farm provides. We support United Plant Savers. Through education and research UPS works to protect wild herbs such as echinacea, wild yam, and American ginseng that have become threatened due to overharvesting or loss of natural habitat. In line with with this action, we are introducing some threatened species of herbs at Tree Frog Farm. We are also volunteer land stewards for several nature preserves on Lummi Island.
All plants are grown chemically free to support the health of the land and people using our products. Our flower essences and most herbal products come from the native, medicinal and other garden plants which ecologically and energetically form the integrated dynamics of the land. By doing this, we are respectfully creating an environmentally sustainable business.
On a daily basis, we communicate with our partners the Overlighting Angel and the Overlighting Deva of Tree Frog Farm, the devas of the garden beds, the fairies, and the Ascended Masters who guide us. Our intent is to operate in alignment with their purposes for Tree Frog Farm and for the benefit of all Beings.
Our Understanding of Health
Our understanding of health follows our philosophy of kinship with and respect for all Life. We call it healing to wholeness. In each lifetime themes and lessons bring us closer to understanding the nature of the universe and our part in it. As we begin to know that the Earth is a learning school an opportunity to experience Creation within the density of this physical dimension we also come to understand the pull to spirituality, to return to Creator, Source, God, Great Spirit. Each lifetime offers physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual challenges in our learning process. These challenges are healing opportunities. Health becomes then, not the absence of symptoms, but the returning to wholeness with All.
