Salmon Creek


We have established a 501c3 non-profit organization to run our land-based arts programming, lead by a full-time director (hiring announcement coming soon), overseen by our board of directors, along with a community council. We will announce our next season of programs in early 2023.

🏡 We have opened up cabins for a first full season of two-week retreat rentals from October to April. Information to visit us for the 2022-23 season here. 

🌲 Free BIPOC artist retreats are offered in the fall, selected by nominations from the SCF council. We will begin an open application process for the 2023 season in May.

🌱 The SCF Seed Mix is SOLD OUT, sry!

We are on Central Pomo land. Picking up, reconnecting, and weaving back strands of indigenous knowledge that were violently broken will be at the heart of the land-based arts program we are developing.

…a 1908 document lists numerous once-known Pomo village sites, including “kaba'tōda, on the top of the high, narrow ridge separating ‘Albion River’ from ‘Salmon Creek,’ and indefinitely located at a distance of one or two miles from the ocean.”

Contemporary communities nearby include Pinoleville Pomo Nation, Hopland Band of Pomo Indians, Coyote Valley Band of Pomo Indians, Sherwood Valley Band of Pomo Indians, Redwood Valley Little River Band of Pomo Indians, and Kashia Band of Pomo Indians.  

…Kashaya Pomo women watch for the first warm inland winds of the summer as a sign that there will only be a few days to gather the seeds of wild oats.
