Our Mission

Ecological Sustainability

Every person has a responsibility to look after the planet both for themselves and for the future generations. Ecological sustainability is the primary focus of our long-term vision and our daily lives. 

Our Mission is to live ecologically sustainable and socially rewarding lives; to share the skills and ideas behind that lifestyle; to maintain a Recreational and Educational Retreat Area providing education and research in environmental management, preservation of environmental habitats, green building & living methods to the public. 

Our Mission will be met through the achievement of certain Goals: 

• To be an example of living off-grid with minimal impact to the land 

• To encourage the free exchange of ideas, views and experiences 

• To facilitate gatherings sharing skills and ideas behind living off-grid with smaller footprints 

• To promote greater understanding and respect between groups and individuals 

• To support ecologically sound practices and land and wildlife conservation in the belief that the Earth and all life are interrelated and interdependent, and that respect for all life is a Universal Mandate 

• To provide safe haven for like-minded friends, family and extended family 

“Self-sufficiency does not mean ‘going back’ to the acceptance of a lower standard of living. On the contrary, it is the striving for a higher standard of living, for food which is fresh and organically grown and good, for the good life in pleasant surroundings, for the health of body and peace of mind which come with hard varied work in the open air, and for the satisfaction that comes from doing difficult and intricate jobs well and successfully.” ~John Seymour
