Why go it ALONE or start from scratch!?

We have just opened MMV to long term memberships and are wanting to co-create relationships with good people who are invested in this sustainable living project.  Your first priority should be self-sufficient, sustainable community living — this is our unifying common thread and it is the value that should bring you here (instead of: investment, etc).

Ideally, you’re physically fit enough to live here on our rugged, wilderness, mountainous terrain, off-grid remote location, and seek a relatively rustic, homesteady lifestyle.

Protocol — this is ideal:
1. Potential members to thoroughly research our sustainability project and understand what we are
and aren’t.   www.maitreyamountainvillage.com
2.  Apply at our web site and email contact
3.  Have a phone call or Skype and talk with us and get a feel for who we all are
4.  Invest in our project in one of two ways
— Purchase a lifetime lease on a build spot on our property for $40K, build your own cabin,
become a founding board member, share in resources, revenue, responsibility, community.
(no yearly or monthly fees, one time investment)
— Buy into our project for $300K, co-own the land in community and partnership, tailor a
mutually empowering individualized owner-relationship

The basics:
This is a remote, sustainable, off-grid, wilderness ecovillage focused on permaculture-inspired homesteading/forest farming (agroforestry).  We are 45 minutes from the Ocean, half hour from the redwoods, and seven hours from major population centers (Portland and SF) in the Siskiyou Mountains, Six Rivers National Forest, and Smith River National Recreational Area.  This is a Mediterranean climate and rainforest (often over 100 inches of rain/yr.) with hot dry summers. All of our water systems are gravity fed from springs.  We are completely self-sufficient, independent of all industrial systems.

We also run a flourishing eco-cabin rental business within the external economic system; 70 fruit and nut tree permaculture crop production as well as plentiful berry, dairy, egg, and foraging agribusiness/farmers market and secondary markets

There are just a few of us now, and enthusiastic about co-creating a flourishing community in 2018 and 2019
— Cheers!

Best,
