Lopez Community Land Trust has been blossoming since 1989 and a bee did come! This small but very effective organization was given an opportunity to purchase a beautiful 48 acre farm on Lopez Island. This opportunity would create a life estate for the current owners, Bob and Cathy Clemens, who are currently in their 80s while further strengthening the local food supply and all aspects of a thriving community.
