The Wild Cooperative is an education and demonstration site in Western Colorado. In the spirit of biocentrism and collaboration, this site is offering creative space for workshops, activism, and community-building. Our vision is to be surrounded by energy efficient homes, perennial food forest gardens, healthy soils and clean reliable water. Just as we design this resilient system on the ground we nurture similarly supportive social, economic, cultural, and educational guilds. This vision was created in the minds of Stanley and Ewelina and is being implemented by them on the ground.

We are a community that cultivates cooperative and facilitating relationship with nature and each other and that shares the knowledge of our living experiences. We are focusing on changing our life’s perspective from human-centric to bio-centric where all life is part of our family and relatives.

We are creating a natural and regenerative ecosystem that energizes all life, allows for individual growth, and shares and returns the surplus of energy and knowledge. This healthy village with resilient social, cultural, economic, educational, and ecological guilds is a building block of a biotic culture.

We are sharing our experiences and knowledge in areas such as seeds, nursery plants, whole nutrient-dense plant-based foods, medicinal and culinary herbs and mushrooms, efficient heating sources and natural structures, ecological land and soil food web design consulting, village building, and primitive skills.
