Seeking life-minded Workawayers to join a fun, healthy environment dedicated to learning and sharing regenerative living skills. We are an not-for-profit, community benefit, off-grid campus dedicated to researching, innovating, developing, and educating regenerative living skills. Our education center was founded by a group of family and friends comprised of wilderness and permaculture educators, wildlife trackers, nutritionists, herbalists, artists, IT Specialists and video producers. Together, we are developing a 25 acre parcel of land into a Regenerative Living Education Center. We currently seek students, volunteers and instructors to co-develop our Regenerative Living campus.

This is an opportunity to contribute in fun and innovative ways to help develop our Regenerative Living Center. From permaculture design to video production and more. Experience a deeper connection to the natural world. Learn how families can live cooperatively and abundantly by working in ways that restore their health and the health of the land. Develop skills to learn how to grow your own food, create your own energy, and identify wild edibles and medicinal. Guests are welcome to borrow books from our education library. As an instructor, you will be given opportunities to build your resume, innovate outside the box, and network with other life-minded participants. Lets learn, create and share Regenerative Living practices together!
Be a part of developing a 25 acre Regenerative Living Education Center as we research, develop and educate regenerative housing, food, energy and waste systems. Bring your permaculture design, video production, electrical, plumbing, solar, off-grid, carpentry, cob building, gardening, foraging, culinary, and animal care skills and be a part of developing our not-for-profit, community benefit campus. We currently have three structures in need of improvements or alterations, garden areas in need of improvements, and other structures for livestock in need of construction.
We ask Workaway Guests to contribute 15 hours per week constructing or tending the gardens, livestock shelters, community cabins, outhouses, and camping sites. In return, you have an opportunity to either teach or learn (depending on your skill level) a variety of off-grid, regenerative living skills. We utilize both primitive and modern technologies as we explore and innovate best practices for optimal regenerative outcomes. Join us as a student or instructor and enjoy a family friendly environment where everyone works for the greatest good of all.
A typical day might involve repairs to a cabin, foraging for wild edibles, cooking a meal, upgrading electrical systems (with certified electrician only), chopping wood, hauling water, tending to chickens, rabbits, worm bin and/or weeding the garden. We follow nature's rhythms and schedule our days accordingly. For example, If it is time to pick huckleberries, all other projects stop and we pick berries. If it is time to forage for morels, we focus our activities accordingly. If it is a good day to celebrate our accomplishments, we organize a party, picnic or other fun activity.
Tents, pads, blankets and potable water are provided at each campsite on our property. Outhouses are available in two locations. Tiny homes, small RV's and campers are welcome. We are off-grid and practice low-impact, regeneratively beneficial living in all we do. Occasional indoor bunks are available in one of our community cabins upon request.
Meals are provided daily. As a regenerative practice, we make sure that all outputs (of work, time, etc...) are met regeneratively. Meals are prepared and shared in a group setting on a daily basis. At times, we might forage, fish, hunt and harvest our food and share equally in its bounty. At other times, we might prepare meals from our food stores. At other times, you are free to prepare and eat your own meals.
Please prepare for: Tick season is April - October. Wildfire season is (July - November). Campfires are prohibited during burn ban season (July-Sep). Winter starts early here and winter weather can be quite cold, so proper outdoor all-season clothing is required.
