Robert Van Lahr, 1940's garden
Jane’s father, Robert “Doc” Van Lahr grew a Victory Garden in the very spot we call Faultline Farm
during his time running the Inn. The garden was started back up again just weeks after Jane's arrival
in 1977 when she took over as Innkeeper.

We invite you to come visit our garden called Faultline Farm! Just under 2 acres in size this garden has
very unique soil, much different from what you'd find in most of this desert region. The garden is
situated on an ancient lake bed that dates back to more than 9,000 years which accumulated over
three feet of decomposed organic matter. The noted existence of a garden here at the Oasis dates
back to the Washington Expedition in the 1850’s.

Some examples of what we harvested this past winter - broccoli, beets, zucchini, cilantro, romaine
lettuce, arugula, kale, carrots, radishes, peas, swiss chard, cabbage, cauliflower, spinach and pak choi.

Some examples of what we harvested this spring and what's coming this summer - melons, basil,
beans, zucchini, yellow squash, winter squash, artichokes, eggplant, peppers, malabar spinach,
cucumbers, tomatoes, pumpkins, okra, apricots, plums, grapes and figs.
