Westwood Natives is a Texas-based sustainable living farm with a focus on permaculture, native plant propagation and rainwater harvesting.
It all started when...
agronomist, Colby Stoker, bought 10 acres in the western woods of Lockhart, Texas. He sat, observed and took time to carefully consider the ecological impact of development and finally irrigated the land with over 1500 linear feet of berms and swales. The land now supports perennial food crops, medicinal herbs and fruit trees.
In 2013, Colby strategically developed the 10 acres at Westwood Natives for large scale regenerative agriculture. Now, both irrigation and drinking water is sourced from rainwater as Colby professionally engineers catchment systems.
Native plants are propagated in the 1800 sq.ft. climate controlled, high-hoop greenhouse. And yes, the systems are automated! Several bee hives are hosted for pollination and sourced for raw, unfiltered honey.
Westwood Natives hopes to further develop their rich educational materials and workshops, expand their food forest to provide for the local food shed and expand into a culture hub by hosting individuals in pursuit of their heart’s passion.
