Willowsford Conservancy provides and manages these places for our community—through more than 2,000 acres of living systems of woodlands, ponds, streams and meadows; through extensive nature trails; our working farm; and sustainable land stewardship practices.
We think facilitating good experiences is the best way to cultivate lifestyles that
have a positive impact on personal and community health, and on the health of land, air, water and wildlife. We do this by restoring and managing a diversity of native habitats; by encouraging wildlife; by maintaining nature trails and green spaces for recreation and contemplation; by growing and selling fresh food; and by offering educational activities to encourage learning, personal responsibility for and engagement with nature.
The product of forward-thinking and creative community development team, the Willowsford Conservancy hopes to be a model for future development that integrates a residential community, functioning ecosystem services and people-oriented agriculture.
In doing so, the Conservancy provides the management framework to ensure conservation and care of the land that was dedicated by the Founder. And it provides the peace of mind for homeowners that the natural open space throughout the community remains in perpetuity, creating value for years to come.
The Conservancy’s non-profit structure allows residents to enjoy private recreational use of the land, and provides funding for land management, farming operations, recreational amenities, and education programs.
