    Description

    We are a permaculterally minded family living on a 143 acres of land, surrounded mostly by national forests in northern California. We have a swimmable river flowing through our land, gravity water system from a creek and alternative power from solar panels. We have extensive gardens and orchards, live a simple lifestyle and are presently building an alternative style house on the land. We live 20 minute drive from a small town, close to hiking trails and wilderness areas. At present we can offer outdoor camping and outdoor kitchen area in a pristine natural environment. We can also offer some teachings through hands on experience in gardening, and all aspects of permaculture and homesteading. This is a clothing optional community.
