Kids Gardening Eden

Lafayette, Oregon

We are two young families striving to make a difference in the world, by educating our children in a different light. We plan on teaching them, (and others!) about a 'new' way of life, living in harmony with the land and respecting our beautiful Mother Earth!

We are looking at purchasing 30 acres near Mt. Hood, Oregon, to build a sustainable, off-the-grid community and start an educational center for our own children and other youth!

We are committed to teaching our children, and the world's children, about sustainable living, organic gardening and agriculture, living lightly with the land, natural building, compassionate care of wildlife, conservation of natural resources, edible wild plants, yoga and personal wellness, nutrition and so much more concerning real-world skills to prepare them for their futures. Our hope is to make the changes necessary for a positive difference in the future of our World!

Our initial plans include a handful of natural dwellings, we are looking at Cob and Straw-Bale houses to start with, and the possibility of a larger communal space that includes a kitchen, where we would bake our own breads and prepare nutritious meals that are 100% organic and grown on-site!

Some of the other goals we have for the beginning of this project are rainwater collection, recycling gray water via a filtering garden system, solar heating and cooling, composting toilets, solar bathing facilities, and utilizing wind and/or water generated energies.

We hope to grow a large enough organic, GMO-Free garden to generate most if not all of the food for the families on-site, as well as traveling to local farmer's markets and the possibility of our own CSA.

This is a dream we have all been compiling for years, to exist outside the confines of traditional society and 'get back' to a more harmonious way of life. Help us prove the possibility of an existence without mindless consumerism, and of a symbiotic relationship with our wonderful planet. Because, right now, our Earth needs it! Thank you so much for reading about us!
