Heartland is “Our shot at Ecotopia” and it is a community of passionate people co-creating an experience unlike anywhere else. We are an off-grid, solar-powered, 25 acre lakeside haven, community, event space, and a business incubator.
Our core pillars are InnerWork, OuterWork, Transformation, and Celebration.
Permaculture, workshops, retreats, and various other events are offered to our members and to the guests they bring.
Join us as we are currently in the village building phase.
Heartland Collective is a growing community manifesting amazing lifestyles as we collaborate and launch brands and businesses that make our world a better place. We curate our collaborations carefully so that the end result serve our visions.
Some events and ideas become projects of the collective, and a few of those develop into community grown symbiotic employee-owned economic enterprises.
Enjoy star-lit skies, sun-filled days, big oak trees, heart-centered conversations, playing in the lake, community dinners, the peacefulness of nature, and the opportunity to be on the frontier for everything we’re co-creating.
We are creating a new kitchen, building a new garden, and so much more!

After 100 hours of support, you will be crowned as an official Heartlander, and various future perks open up :)
On your off time, you can go hiking, enjoy the lake, meditate, write, do yoga, commune w others, and/or explore being in your own Flow State.
Communal biofilter compost toilets and showers are available.
Enjoy some lakeside swimming and some beautiful lakeside hikes through 100's of open acres.
An adventure map can also be provided for waterfall and river adventures.
Access to outdoor kitchen and coolers are possible. BYO ice and food.
Pre-book to join communal meals for a $10 donation.
If you did not bring food to Heartland you can join as a guest and we can cook for you.
We use mostly organic food, and we use as much food as we can from our gardens. Seasonal food availability varies, but we do our best.
Our staff and onsite availability also vary, so sometimes it may be a big community meal with 15 people and sometimes you may share an intimate meal with just one other person.
