Mother Earth

(Spokane, Arizona, United States)

Mission Statement:

Living life to the fullest

Community Description:

If gray skies get you down, officially we’re in the sunniest area of the United States, with an annual average possible sunshine ranking of 90 percent, based on at nearly five decades of official government records.

And yes, it’s a dry heat – average annual rainfall is around three inches a year, and humidity is generally low except during the summer monsoon season (July, August).

Nights can be cool during the winter – that’s why you’ll see locals bundled up while visitors go less – but hard freezes are rare, allowing vegetables and citrus to flourish through the winter.

And your nose will know it’s March from the perfume of orange blossoms wafting on the breeze!

Our Intentional Community is open and being planned and laid out for use. Close to some 500 acres of access.
