The Northcoast Regional Land Trust is a nonprofit organization with a focus of protecting land and water on nearly five million acres on California’s North Coast encompassing Humboldt, Del Norte, and Trinity Counties. Find out more About us.

Freshwater Farms Reserve Open House


On Sunday, September 7, from 12-6pm, the Northcoast Regional Land Trust and the Kneeland Glen Farm Stand, operated by Kathy Mullen, invite the community to an open house at Freshwater Farms Reserve, located at 5851 Myrtle Ave, Freshwater CA.

There will be multiple vendors showcasing Humboldt’s locally-produced food and fiber, and local band SleepWalkerz will entertain the crowd throughout the afternoon. Northcoast Regional Land Trust Executive Director Mike Cipra will lead a tour of the 74-acre property at 2:00 pm starting at the historic Graham-Long Dairy Barn; this tour will traverse the wild and working landscapes that make Freshwater Farms Reserve a unique community resource.  Throughout the afternoon, the land trust will be seeking input from the community on the long-term vision of the property.

The open house is free, and no RSVP is necessary—all attendees are encouraged to bring a potluck item to share with their neighbors, with a focus on using locally grown and produced ingredients.

Annual Advisor's Event

Last week, Northcoast Regional Land Trust’s advisors, board members and staff came together at Freshwater Farms Reserve for NRLT's Annual Advisors Meeting. The meeting was held outside in front of the Farm Stand, and much of the evening was focused on how NRLT can best serve the community in the next 5 years, as well as getting specific input on the Freshwater Farms Reserve property after reviewing the current draft vision. Everyone present offered thoughtful and substantial insight – all seemed to agree that we have matured as an organization and are filling many important community needs.
