Project Description

“It means the world to me that I can be myself.”

-Lisa Redman

Elizabeth West and Lisa Redman have carved out a sanctuary deep in the Appalachian Mountains in the shape of a permaculture farm. Sustained by fresh spring water and a canopy of towering trees, Woodland Harvest Mountain Farm is more than a space—it’s a state of mind. Since 2012, Elizabeth and Lisa have lived entirely off-grid, supplying their own electricity, forgoing cell service and creating as much of their own food as possible. They welcome a variety of young folks into their home year-round, all with the same loving mindset they use when sowing and harvesting their land: a spirit of grace, resilience and loving gratitude. This is a story of home—of needing and crafting it from the ground up.
