Golden Cup Visitor Map
Golden Cup is located in Ukiah, California, hidden away in a mountain range. It is two parts:
• a permaculture homestead, producing every imaginable variety of stone fruit and herb, tropical fruits and olives.
• 115 acres of wilderness, populated with short-term rental structures connected by trails.
I participated in a work-exchange there for six months, where I gained skills in forestry, fire abatement, irrigation, carpentry, and so much more involved in rural living.
As I wrapped up my time there, I was asked to make a walking map for visitors.
From fall to spring, the creek runs straight through the center of the property.
In the summer, the creek runs dry and a different, hardier species of grass takes over, turning the hills yellow.
