Mission Statement

Mission: to provide a low-cost land ownership method, to help each other out with labour if needed, to share resources and knowledge. Enjoy working with nature and the simple life. Ideally to stay away from money.

Community focus is to provide for ones needs onsite.

Community Description

This is 53 acres offered up in a flexible way. Long term / short term stays welcomed.

I would like to see it as a self-sustaining plot of land were people can enjoy themselves. The people would have good morals and be good neighbors! Permaculture highly encouraged here. Currently 2 members on site and building April 2017.

Additional Comments

Ideally this would be a place were people can work together to sustain each other. The idea is to transition from making money in the ‘system’ to providing for everyone’s needs on site. But these are not requirements by far.
