We are creating an intentional, sustainable, and integrated community. We support each other in fostering physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well being through conscious entrepreneurship and art-centered permaculture design, which includes building, food, energy, education, and wellness systems.
We welcome those who are inspired to collaborate and create this collective vision! We believe this project will not only provide a beautiful place to live for those involved, but it will also be an example of the possibility of human potential and community synergy.
The following are a very basic list of what we are in the process of creating. For a more details please check out the Goals page on our website.
-Land-60-75 acres (20 tillable) on East-side of Jasper which will be developed with permaculture design principles
-Shared community space including community center, workshop/art studio, campground, and community land
-Support Individual Businesses through availability of low-cost rental space in the form of offices, farm, workshop or retreat center
-Individual homes on community land
-Create rituals such as meditation, solstice/equinox gatherings, drum circles, shared meals and traditional holidays.

- Decision Making by consensus
- Monthly Meetings
