Alo House is pleased to announce the unveiling of our exciting new organic farm project. Perched over the majestic pacific ocean, Alo House Farms sits on over six acres of lush, fertile land.
So far, we have built twenty 16′ x 4′ raised beds, brimming with rich organic soil. Future plans include an orchard, and livestock. We have adopted six chickens, who will soon be joined by pigmy goats and ducks.
We are growing tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, asparagus, onions, herbs and more!
The entire farm project, and future product line – marketed under the Alo House Farms banner – is meant to provide our clients with community economic development opportunities. Not only will Alo House Farms provide clients with a source of income and work experience, whether it’s in marketing, horticulture, administration, but just as important, it will give them a sense of self-esteem and build confidence in their ability to contribute to society in a meaningful way.
Additionally, by selling the products in the local marketplace, in stores and at the Malibu farmer’s market, the Alo House Farms project will work to remove the stigma attached to addiction, and to the recovery community in Malibu more generally.
Local citizens will be able to see us for who we really are – a close-knit community of good hearted young people who just needed to feel passionate about something, plus a little support and guidance.
