The Big Picture
We envision a vibrant ecovillage based on permaculture principles, operating as a catalyst for cultural transformation. Through courage, hope, connection, and diversity, we are building resilient systems, relationships, and lifestyles that provide vitality and joy through good times and hard.
To be good stewards of the land and each other. To be a self-sufficient community and haven that protects, heals, nourishes and enriches. To share knowledge, joy, connection, and resources – and cultivate kinship, knowledge, skills, and arts that bring increased richness and wellbeing to the community and the land. To build a climate-resilient community that provides for members and the surrounding community, in hard times and in good.
We intend to be a diverse, self-sufficient, restorative and abundant community across all walks of life. Here are some details in regards to how we see that happening.
Producing and preparing an abundance of nourishing food using permaculture, aquaponics, mycology and more.
