    We are a non profit fiscally sponsored, aspiring to create an educational and remembrance retreat center in the hills and forest of Northern California. We are currently in our building phase creating infrastructure to house our small growing community, visitors, and create more space for workshops. (we do not host workawayers during workshops) In 2022 we will be focusing on working in the forest, doing clearing for fire prevention and watershed regeneration while harvesting trees for round pole timber-frames, Natural Building and gardening. We have been doing controlled burning in a ritualistic way and will continue this work thought the end April when we turn our attention to natural building work and the gardens.

    Our other ongoing tasks that could use assistance tending the forest, maintaining our gardens and fruit trees, natural building work, and tending to the animals (2 goats and 1 dog,2 chickens, and 2 cats) We also always love help in the kitchen! :)

    A little bit more about us....
    We catch most of our water, and are off grid with a small solar install. We are looking for folks interested in natural building,tending the gardens, tending the wild, plant propagation, coppice, and animal husbandry. WATER is our religion ;) we like to focus on a spirit-filled life of music and tea ceremony when we're not creating and maintaining what we steward. We are interested in hosting folks that are interested in self-improvement, healing arts of any kind and healthy life style.

    We prefer that your minimum stay is three weeks to insure a full experience on both ends, that being said if you are just passing through the area we have small projects that we can use help with that dont plug you in so deeply to the hidden workings of permaculture that we have been developing over the last 10 years. Although we are a budding community we typically hold space for each other to have independence and alone time. If being alone in nature scares you this is not the place for you. We thrive on keeping our space safe and sacred for all those whom visit and enjoy the peace we steward, we imagine that inspires you as well.
    we can provide bulk grains, beans, and pasta. all fresh veggies that are not harvested from the garden are a shared cost for communal meals which will be arranged at new and full moons. typically because we are such a small crew we take care of ourselves while sharing joyously. We spend our free time either making music, practicing asanas/meditating, working on personal projects and drinking tea. We can offer the original bus as a bunk house or You should be ready to camp as we are still working on building housing. We can provide you with a tent, matt, and blankets if you need.,

    we are not interested in hosting folks whom are just looking to party all tho we live in celebration. Additionally, if you are non ceremonial smoker this is not like to be the place for you, and finally, if you can't live with out gas station food this is not likely to be a very good environment for you.

    You can plan on an experience focusing on living in harmony with the land and each other. There tends to be a large flux of different friends of all types with varying experiences and abilities to share, along with what is already held within our very small community. An open heart, open mind, curiosity, and self-motivation create the perfect opportunity to absorb endless skills, knowledge, and wisdom that come from living close to nature. This allows us to get in touch with our own true nature and abilities, with mindfulness of our environment and our influence.

    In 2022 we will be focusing on natural building. We spent a lot of time in 2016-2018 harvesting and acquiring the materials, 2019-2021 have been spent building in both workshop and informal format. We have a workshop series planned for this season, with a few very experienced natural builders. The other team plans are to do regenerative forest/aquifer works. The beginning of our workshop series will involve some additional forest works including doing some of this regenerative work and harvesting more building materials.

    We could also use inspired and motivated hands in the garden. With most of the home crew focused on headlining building projects, we sadly aren't able to be in the garden as much as it deserves. It's such a beautiful, healing space...would you be excited to get your hands in the soil and commune with these plants? If you are a farmer gardner looking for a garden to steward with soil that has been developed beyond organically for a decade and includes hugelcultures all on drip reach out ASAP.

    Ideally we are looking for motivated friends who are eager to get'r done, understanding the importance of maintaining a balance of work and play!

    YOU: self motivated to help alongside friends or apply expertise to your own project .you are inspired to be looking at yourself and ways to align with optimal health and redesign consumer habits to reduce consumerism, trash and avoid supporting corporations that are poisoning water.

    Willits is a sweet little town with a charming community. There are sometimes (slowly re-emerging) fun local events such as art exhibits, craft fairs, weekly farmers market, ecstatic dance, dance classes live music, etc. We like to stay tuned in to these and support our local community when we can....but we are also very busy on the land so it's all about balance. Where we live is mystifying and we're inspired by the land to deepen our relationship where we are.

    Although we will share in the experience of living in this small community, we expect short-term visitors to stay focused during their time here. If you are looking for a place to base camp while getting out and about for most of your stay this is not it.
