  • Description

    Description

    Unity is located on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and is based on a 45 acre farm which serves as a base for our Landscape Design/Build Company specializing in Environmentally friendly Design/Build projects. Unity Church Hill Nursery is also located on the farm and specializes in the sale of native plants, soil balancing products, fountains, pottery, garden art and more. Unity Church Hill Farm is also based on the farm and is a developing diverse vegetable and fruit production farm. Our vegetable and fruit production incorporates organic management methods, no till, inter-cropping, soil building, and providing the community with high quality all natural healthy food. We have also constructed 300' of Hugel mounds and will begin growing on them this year. There are on going projects on the farm in the landscape design/build, the retail nursery and the vegetable production side and we can use all of the expertise available from our work away community.
