Basil Brook Organic Pharm was established in 2000 and is located in East Amwell, New Jersey. The farm grows wildcrafted organic herbs, flowers veggies,provides energy conservation education,alternative energy education,and herb walks. Basil Brook is one of the first wildcrafting organic farms in the State of New Jersey The design and construction of the ENERGY STAR, active/passive solar “green” building/home serves as a ENERGY STAR & passive/active solar design education tool. The League of Woman Voters, NESEA Groups, The Hunterdon County Parks Department, Congressman Rush Holt, Architects, contractors, individual home builders, and college students, have attended energy education tours at Basil Brook. Off site energy education is also provided throughout New Jersey.

Basil Brook’s ENERGY STAR home is equipped Low E Anderson windows and doors, (installed on north, east and west exposures of the home.) R-11 polystyrene insulation has been installed around foundation and under basement floor. Exterior walls are 2”x 6”, 24 inch on center construction with R-19 insulation. Chimney effect (caused by air infiltration) was reduced by caulking and the installation of interior wall insulation. The attic insulation is R-42, and is properly ventilated. Basement walls and floors are insulated with 2” exterior and perimeter rigid board insulation. All appliances are ENERGY STAR rated and florescent Lighting is installed throughout the living space. Domestic hot water is assisted with a solar hot water system. A recently expanded, grid tied, photovoltaic system provides electricity. A passive solar potting shed had been the most resent addition to the farm.

The farm’s home construction, energy educational tours and community outreach program are privately 908-788-6864 for more information or Google: Alice Celebre
