Terra Prana

RFC Host Farm: Fiddlehead Farm
Graduated: 2015


Erika moved out west to chase her dream of becoming a farmer and starting her own small farm, but had no idea how she was going to do it. She participated in Rogue Farm Corps’ Portland Chapter as an intern with Fiddlehead Farm in 2015.  She is now living the dream of starting her very own farm in Aptos, CA called Terra Prana.  Her farm grows a diversity of vegetables, fruits, herbs and flowers using sustainable, organic practices on ~½ acre and sells directly through a CSA and to restaurants.

Erika writes, “Rogue Farm Corps gave me the knowledge, tools, experience and resources I needed to make my dream a reality.  I still have so much to learn but RFC gave me a firm foundation to build on.”
