Just 25 miles outside of beautiful Portland Oregon, situated in the foothills of Mt. Hood on 120 acres, is the home of a rustic enviro-spiritual, healing, permaculture community. Ideally looking for 10 - 20 pioneering individuals or couples to put energy into creating this community. The land is paid for already, so that is not a hurdle; however, everything else: road in, the buildings, water, energy sources, monetary resources etc. still needs to be created. If you like to start with a completely open slate and create from scratch, then this community is for you! Open to all sorts of ideas provided they fit within the realm of being environmentally sound and are suitable to forestland. Consider furniture making, building treehouses and natural buildings, setting up a camp for kids and adults to learn about nature and survival skills, hosting healing retreats, doing llama packing, spinning your own wool etc. Really the possibilities are as large as your imagination. You must be emotionally mature and ready to learn, expand and stretch beyond your comfort zone to make a healthy community and create a true space of love.
We are aiming to create eco-village zoning to become an all encompassing eco-village of 120-130 members. THIS IS A DRUG AND SMOKE FREE COMMUNITY. That's the main limitation/liberation! Please submit your ideas and the gifts you bring for consideration as a founding member of this community to FionaRhea. If you're local to Portland, we meet bi-monthly to discuss the logistics of how to structure our community, what projects to undertake, and have social time as well as discussing the books Creating a Life Together and the Ringing Cedar series as well as share resources. Every summer we'll be hosting campouts on the land to work on a building project. If you're ready to shake your world, you're welcome to just come for rustic living for $250/mo. and start a project.
Community location is placed at the center of the zip/postal code, city/state, or city/country (not based on street addresses)
