Homesteader's Haven Agrihood General Manager Don Jackson graduated from BYU-Idaho in 2000 with a degree in Landscape Horticulture Management and has passionately devoted his career to understanding the fundamentals of what makes plants grow NATURALLY healthy and abundantly.
Having rigorously studied the Father of Organics Sir Albert Howard and his protégé J.I. Rodale, Don’s lives by the mantra “it’s all about the soils”. Homesteader's Haven is blessed to have Don’s talents guiding our design, buildout and management of the Agrihood component as we utilize “best practices” in proper garden design with active soils to manage pests and weeds in lieu of “Frankencrop” GMOs, herbicides and pesticides believed to be a major contributor to the alarming increase in a litany of health care concerns.
Our mission is to serve God by being responsible stewards of all that is entrusted to our care. To provide attractive and affordable rural locations for Homesteaders Haven residents to thrive in a neighborhood offering food and water security. To have non-certified organic garden, livestock and dairy products provide a robust “farm to table” lifestyle in our community. To offer educational opportunities for Agrihood and Permaculture Design thereby facilitating their widespread application.
"What we are NOT" was created to dispel common misperceptions about our Homesteader's Haven community.
