Salmon Creek Arts cultivates an expanding community of artists*, offering time to slow down, space to take a step back, the chance to live close to the land, and to participate in its cycles. We offer modest home-spun spaces to create and share work in a communal free-range wild woodsy environment. In fall 2024 we inaugurate our offerings at Salmon Creek Farm, where we will eventually take over operations and ownership.

Salmon Creek Farm is located on 33 acres of second and third growth redwoods two miles from California’s Mendocino Coast. Old logging roads and foot trails criss-cross south facing slopes from sunny meadows, gardens, orchards, communal outdoor kitchen, and dance deck on top, to eight furnished hand-crafted commune cabins each nestled in their own nook of the woods, across a ravine that bisects the land to abandoned off-grid cabins, and finally down to Big Salmon Creek in the valley. It is an especially good spot to feel your small place in the big cycle of life on earth.

* we use the term ‘artist’ expansively encompassing those working with craft, movement, food, gardens, image, sound, word, etc.
