    My fiance and I are looking to get a new start on life due to circumstances beyond our control. I’ve been in construction all of my life from painter to electrician. I enjoy working with my hands and creating new things as well as upcycle things to. My fiance is great with animals and around the house. She is also a message therapist. We just need a change in gears and get to know each other better on a different level and enjoy new experiences. If this is still available and if you are interested, please send me an email so we can get together and helping you help us! Thanks for your time,
    Sincerely,
    Nickolas J Johnson

    Other than hunting on the land are there any other rules that people should be aware of before joining and do you require that the person(s) joining have all experience needed or are you willing to train as long as person is willing to work?

    Joining Us

    We are currently accepting inquiries and applications for new members. There are two types of members currently being accepted. Please read about each type of member we are accepting applications for. Select which type of member you might be interested in becoming and place it in the email you send with our inquiry.

    Working members are members that work full time at the community. They work with us on the land and off the land. Types of work that are common include: fencing, mowing, feeding animals, cleaning animal housing, gardening, cleaning of common areas, building shelters, repairing buildings, and more. Imagine a self sufficient community and all the types of work that would be needed for it and then imagine a few more lol.

    These members pay nothing to live here. They receive room and board along with a small monthly stipend for personal expenses. This is not a job, it is set up as a labor for room and board.The average monthly stipend is around $100.00 per working person. It can go up if the person wants to work more hours away from the land. We mow, clean and take care of other properties to make the land payments, buy food, etc. The more work away from the land the higher the stipened. There is no guarantee on the amount of the stipend. It can change month to month with expenses and amount or work away from the land. The average working member spends 2 days away from the land working.

    Paying members are members with outside income. Retired or disabled members usually fit in this category. These members can only help out around the land on a limited basis. In exchange for room and board these members pay monthly contributions ranging from $350.00 a month up to $500.00 per month. This is a sliding scale set up based on individual needs and desire fo the community and potential member. The paying member could help with any task they wanted to gardening, cooking, pitching in how and when they wanted. They would not be required to help out, but it is encouraged. Even just helping with dishes once in awhile is a huge help or picking some produce from the garden for meals.

    We have rooms in the main house, we have a spots for campers rv’s, we also have rooms in out buildings that are being converted to studio cabins. All new members begin as trial members. If they are happy and everything is going well in 6 to 12 months they are given the chance to apply for full membership. If the other community members and leaders approve the application they have the option of building a house/ cabin on the land.

    Any building site and materials must be approved by members and leaders. Simple rules concerning the land use and building practices will be in place to protect the land and all members.

    Please keep in mind that there is no hunting on community land. You may hunt on land otehr than community land at your descretion. Animals that live on the land are to be treated with respect and kindness. If you do not like animals this is not a good community for you.

    We are not a community for everyone. We do not raise any animals to be killed. We do buy locally rasied meat for members that eat meat. Some members do not eat meat and thi sis ok. We do not care about personal religious beliefs as long as there is no preaching or recruiting of other members. If a member asks you about your religion then tell them and answer the questions if you want. We do celebrate holidays, birthdays, seasons and well any reason to have music and food with dancing is reason enough lol.

    We eat meals together and will also be planing camping trips, trips to the drive in, movie nights, and more. We are rebuilding from teh ground up and seeking members that would like to become leaders in the future. We are hoping to find long term members but will consider short term members as well. 620 899 1971
