Vision for the Future
I have a Dream!
I've had it for over a decade, so clearly it's time to put it out there and see if there are others who are interested in co-creating this together. Imagine a place where all systems such as housing, community, renewable energy, water usage, gardens, composting, food supply and animal care are integrated and supported. A property that serves as a template for others to model as we transition into a new era of sustainability.
Let's call it Home. Because Home is where the heart is.
It is a sustainable village situated on a beautiful 100-acre property with rolling green hills and a creek running through. A place with idyllic weather where people can live, gardens can grow and animals can roam freely with sustainability, enrichment, and a peaceful existence being the ultimate goal. A microcosm of people who share the common desire of contributing to the good of the whole and living in harmony with nature and each other.
It will be based on a permaculture philosophy while functioning simultaneously as an animal sanctuary, education center, art gallery, outdoor amphitheater for films and music events, vegan café serving food grown on the land, a workshop/clinic venue, a place for influencers to speak and share their vision, a retreat for anyone wanting a healing, nature-inspired recharge. Home's mission is to provide a place where all beings thrive and to inspire all who work and visit to live a joy-filled life characterized by awareness of and responsibility to self and the world we are indivisibly a part of.
In the interests of long term viability, it has the potential of being a commercially run venture that offers great rewards for all who work and invest in it. The workshops, talks, retreats, cafe, and offerings will abundantly support the care and maintenance of the land and those who manage the property, as well as give it the ability to support animal rights, nature conservation, and environmental organizations and causes.
Privately owned houses and guest cabins are dotted around the property. Houses are custom built from natural materials and integrated into the land. There will be a main hall for people to congregate, a horse facility and hiking trails that criss-cross the property. Fruit trees, veggies, and herbs are abundant. There is a yoga/meditation temple, spa, infrared sauna, and a natural water hole.
The feel, values and aesthetic are environmentally sympathetic, tucked into nature and externally unobtrusive, everything operating along with sustainable principles. Imagine buildings organically nestled in among trees along a river bank, everything, including the gardens, swimming hole, and recreation facilities exuding harmonious tranquility – quality workmanship powered by renewable energy with attention to detail and full of love.
In summary, we intend to create a place to surrender and re-connect with the divine energy of nature and the animal world and thus realize how to translate that state of mind and being into everyday life. Meanwhile, those of us involved are building a haven that magnificently furthers our own wellbeing, growth, contribution, and prosperity.
Home - it takes a village.
