Est. 1880’s

Garden Seal Ranch is an acre and a half of a gently rolling meadow in the village of Mendocino, California.

The intention is to cultivate this piece of land and have it serve our friends, family and extended community as a place to gather and enjoy life, and as a place to find the resource and compassion to continue working for the betterment of our world.

The property currently houses a renovated redwood cabin from the 1880’s, a small guest cottage, and acres of planted gardens.

You can follow along online on Instagram or e-mail us to inquire about a visit.

Ren. 2021-2022

Working with two very close friends and architects, Fritz Haeg and Jeremy Schipper of Salmon Creek Studio, we completed the renovation of the cabin over the course of one year. All the wood from the home was milled from my sister's property, we used sheep's wool insulation, repurposed tiles from Heath Ceramics headed for the landfill, and scavenged all of the windows and foors from  architectural salvages across California. The house is also plumbed for greywater irrigation and has 20,000 gallons of rainwater storage. In keeping with my belief that human health is completely tied to the health of our environment, we tried our best to build a home that has a minimal carbon footprint.
