Camping

We offer camping as a housing option for the July permaculture course, with prior approval only.

Here are some important things to know and agree to:

  • Absolutely no food, smoking or fires are allowed in the backcountry. We are very serious about this due to the high wildfire danger in our area. 
  • Guests may pitch a tent in the designated meadow at the top of the 70-acre backcountry which is a 10-minute walk along a sloped, unlit path from the main facilities (core area). You must be able to hike in your own gear.
  • This isn’t a “campground.” There are no facilities in the camping meadow – no potable water source, no bathrooms, etc. Campers share common use of the Community Bath House in the core area.
  • Guests provide their own tent and equipment.
  • The cost for camping is the same as the cost for guest housing, included in your course fee.

If you have backpacking/wilderness experience, you will love camping here during your course. The sunrise and sunset views are spectacular and the camping area is located near the swimming pond. Camping also provides a bit more privacy than the shared room option.
