Welcome to Tranquility’s Way! We are seeking spiritual, like-minded people to partner with us.
Tranquility's Way is the evolving reality of a group of family and friends. This reality has been evolving since the year 2000. We have purchased 50 acres of land in the Northeast region of Alabama, USA (Mentone) in March of 2012. Our intention is to have a spiritual retreat center with cabins, beautiful gardens and an abundance of food. A campground and RV resort is already in place an functional. This will create some jobs for the community. The land is quite beautiful with many springs popping up everywhere. the springs have been tested and its pristine water! Our forest is naturally food based with blackberries, sumac, cherries, crap apples, blueberries, tons of greens and grapes! An abundance of water is here with our 6 acre spring fed lake!
In years to come will be an eco-village with various living styles, organic farm, General store, restaurant etc. A total of six separate projects, along with subsidiaries, will be in the works for anyone to head up and take on. We are currently seeking founding members that is capable of investing with us financially.
We will be an egalitarian, inter-generational community that welcomes human diversity, ecological sensibility, mutual learning, and joy.
The land is situated in the beautiful highlands, where there are an attractive mix of activities such as hiking trails revealing a diversity of wildlife, panoramic views, and streams and rivers that meander through Mentone. Large beautiful water falls, Caverns, natural swimming holes, and many other fantastic things surround our property!
Current Update: We are developing the first Eco-campgrounds in the US! This will take some design planning and implementation with Permaculture design in mind. Our intention for 2012-2013 is to develop the eco-campgrounds, the surrounding area of the home and continue to learn and understand the ecology of the environment. All are welcome to come and campout and enjoy our campgrounds. We are happy to host those who wish to exchange some energy toward developing the improvements to our campgrounds and gardens. Outdoor solar showers with grey water system, composting toilets, and large composting project are in the development phases. We shall need a bit of help designing and implementing these. Your help with this is deeply appreciated. Much love and happiness to you all. contact us anytime. bliss...
