Description of Mountain Village Community
WHO ARE WE?
We are O’Quinn Mountain Village Homestead & World Community Gardens. Our core group consists of, Ann O’Quinn (age 42 – Earth Mamma), Cornelius O’Quinn (age 52 – Celtic Druid Building Contractor Mountain Man), Blu O’Quinn (age 18 – Sparkly Swing Dancin River Guide Chic), Derek Suhar (age 20 – Groovy Grounded Community Dude). See our pics and blogs on website. We are a semi-nomadic sustainable community with permaculture tendancies who like to cross-pollinate.
WHAT DO WE DO?
We offer ourselves to land-owners for a contracted period of time to do good work with Mother Earth and within the surrounding community. Our community ranges from 4-10 interns. We have a core group of 4 members, and we cycle other traveling interns in and out of the mix for special projects throughout the year. Sometimes we have chickens, cats, and dogs. We garden, clear/burn brush, care for animals, compost, barter, build, make music, reach out to youth, and participate in community events and farmer’s markets (we are known for our raw, organic nut/seed butters, carrot juice, and kombucha teas). While permaculture is mostly known for its application in gardens or land development, its broader definition is the study of living systems. While Mountain Village is quite involved with organic gardening, we are known and appreciated for the space that we create for the organic unfoldment within group dynamics, personal relationships, and the greater community.
