Mission Statement

Our focuses are intentional community, housing alternatives, and permaculture.

Community Description

Our purpose is to create community and housing which meets needs and utilizes more natural technology and sustainable and efficient energy and agriculture to create a solid foundation for all who live there. We want to create a healthy example of how a community can work together and share our earth, for families who need, want, and are willing to work for a brighter future, a stable home, and a strong community. What we offer is unique because we will be using new technology, strongly encouraging people to follow their passion, and focusing on building strong ties between our community members.
We are seeking interested community members to create intentional community in the area, perhaps through the purchase of land. Concept: Unique natural-built homes each with their own 2 acres to grow crops, raise animals, and create their vision. We are still looking at locations, but one that we like is in nearby Westwater, Utah, a great value situated on the Colorado River, with a beautiful sandstone bluff, a well, and power already.
