Friends and I moved to this place in 2017 from Southern California. We got tired of the rat race, the crowded freeways and the wildfires. We wanted a bigger, natural space, a more free way of life and we were in desperate need of water... No joke!!
Our vision is to turn this few acres into a community, a place where our friends can come to retreat, relax, eat, get healthy, have fun and feel welcomed. I'm a natural health consultant and work with natural therapies including diets, medicinal herbs, crystals and metaphysics, and my sidekick is a bad ass artist named Walt.

Looking to make new friends to have fun and get a few acres of land ready for gardening and living spaces!
A small fruit orchard with medicinal plants and herbs was planted last summer, but much more needs to be done, so we're looking for
strong people who can handle working hard and playing hard!
Must not be afraid of getting dirty, clearing land, chopping wood, and planting flowers. This is in exchange for a beautiful place to retreat, relax, have fun, eat healthy and most definitely create a symbiotic relationship that benefits all!
We can possibly arrange a pick up from the airport in Chattanooga.
Currently there are tents available with bedding, will have access to a bathroom with running water and a hot shower. Planning to build a community kitchen and small cabins to house our friends. Cooking will be done outdoors, and local, fresh farm produce will be provided.
Located 1800 feet in elevation up on the Cumberland Plateau, we are in a rural location, 30-45 minutes from Chattanooga and the South Cumberland State Park is practically in our backyard! Many waterfalls, springs, streams and lakes nearby, as well as hiking trails and of course water sports like boating, kayaking and paddle boarding, extreme sports like rock climbing, motorcycle riding, skydiving and hang gliding are also in the area!
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers

Our goal is to build trusting, mutually beneficial, win-win relationships with our friends through determination and hard work, so they may always have a place to return to, a place they can feel happy, a place they can feel welcomed, a place they can call home (away from home!)
