The age of fossil fuel powered industrial civilization is rapidly coming to an end.

What comes next is up to us.

In these uncertain times, developing self sufficient and resilient communities through ecological and cultural regeneration, and helping each other along the way, are the most important things we feel we can do.

Guided by the concepts of Permaculture design, regenerative agriculture, 8 Shields and Buddhism, we are developing a wilderness homestead, regenerative farm, intentional community, and education center for life in the post industrial era.

Our community is comprised of a core group of extended family members and a widening circle of friends, colleagues, team members and volunteers.

We share a vision of living in balance with the earth, in harmony with each other, and at peace within ourselves.

We are drawn to the teachings of the Buddha, and aspire to live in accordance with this philosophy. We value spiritual exploration, and the journey of discovering what it means to be alive on this planet, and we are open to all beliefs and traditions that promote peace and awakening.

We believe that learning how to live a lifestyle in line with our beliefs and values, and sharing our experiences and process with other people is the most direct and practical way we can create positive change on the planet.
