A Little Farm Growing Big Relationships
A farm born from an idea born from a place.
Floating Islands Farm is named after the rafts of cattails that meander by the changing winds around Lake Monongalia, continuously attaching and detaching from the shore and each other.
However, the name encompasses the philosophy of the farm as well. Floating Islands are a metaphor for people, animals, planets and microorganisms moving through space and time; constantly meeting new peers and places and leaving others behind. Floating Islands are self-contained entities that are constantly being changed by inter-actings.
In this way, Floating Islands Farm is a constantly evolving concept, with the idea that every piece of the farm is a separate entity that affects and changes the other entities. Our only desire is to nudge those changes towards the positive.
