    If you've ever wanted to live off-grid and to be truly resource conscious, this is a great place to learn. This is also an integrative healing center. Community here fluctuates. Sometimes the place is packed, sometimes its empty. This provides a nice space to meet like-minded people, but also to be in solitude.
