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.
