Seeking Assistance/Partnerships, towards Developing a Self Sustainable
Green Community/Healing Educational Center and, Camp.

This is a willing challenge and lifestyle change of mine, having no prior experience, living a conventional life however, cultivating a life which destroys, I grow weary of for our future generations.

Through years of experiencing illness, spurning me to research natural healing, I grew a passion, for not just healing myself and being self sustaining but, also
in seeking to purchase property that offers a healing atmosphere for myself, the community, our animals/family and all who visit for retreats, healing/ meditational visits, perhaps a B&B, offering farm-to-table meals. The broader picture is to share responsibility in assisting eachother to build our homes, lessening expense, strain and, pressure on any individual. As well, as we grow in support, we will be providing jobs, bringing in support and income through the fruits of our labors. I would like to create a video log of every step, with online interactive access for the community to experience the process, where feedback and donations can also be received.

My desire is to build a self sustaining, green environment with others who are mindful about our impact on the environment. I am a local spiritual artist, environmental/animal activist and writer who, through struggles with health, gained knowledge and passion for healing within, understanding our intricate inter-dependence with Mother Nature and, our responsibility to live in balance with her. In so doing, we all find balance from within to without. "A house divided against itself cannot stand".

Through life's experiences and realizations, I continue to grow a passion to cultivate life, to assist others, through developing a natural healing environment/center, where we share experiences building straw/ bale hay cob homes and structures, utilizing recyled and biodegradable materials. My hope is for a piece of fertile land for organic crops, with a natural running stream or brook, to both generate hydroelectric power, as well as offer a run-off, to water the crops. Having a barn, or structure(s) in place with which to live and
work from to start would be helpful. Gathering an environmentally aware
/ wholistically aware community, inviting cultural and traditional
gatherings, healers, offering classes on how to debrid and heal from
toxins, nurturing mind, body and, spirit. As we grow in space and
support, retreats would also be offered. Natural architects, artists of
all medium, focused on sustainable living are welcome to contribute,
focused on offering hands-on natural building techniques, incorporating
Mother Nature. Any companies with innovative green technology, equipment, supplies, that they would like to donate, introducing your green footprint will be greatly be acknowledged and appreciated. :) Along with raising funds, legal assistance with the
business structure, securing property, engineers permacularists/
horticulturalists, musicians, artists, craftsmen of all types, and all
those with skills and spirit, who wish to be of assistance, is greatly
appreciated. :) A huge aspect of the building process involves inviting
the community to take part, as well as offering seminars and programs,
built on sustainable living, within to without .

Adobe homes are completely energy eficient, utilizing solar passive heating, when placed in conjunction with the sun. As well, they are termite resistant and
have tested amazingly stable during earthquakes. Not only are they of
earth, they leak no toxins into the atmosphere, all bodies in the
environment. The beauty of the process of building these natural
structures is having your hands in it, as well as your family and
children alongside you, no dangerous, noisy drills, or toxic chemicals,
just water, sand, straw and good times! Now of course, there needs to be
a foundation and structure built, so there might be some drilling and
noise along the way, however, I look forward to the green ingenuity of
those who assist with the engineering. :) Each adobe home uniquely
reflects your creative personalities, as adobe molds like play-dough,
without the toxins, allowing for treasured handprints and designs to be
pressed and carved in, allowing for inlays of beautiful stones and
colored glass, integrating your creativity. If you question their
durability, many adobe homes are still standing for hundreds of years,
around the world. If interested in living green and discussing dynamic
ways we can nurture ourselves and community, with passion and
compassion, your talent and energy is much needed and appreciated.

My vision is for us to inspire other communities to do the same. This shift
is healing us and our environment, while allowing us to re-incorporate
life giving lifestyles, products and techniques from our ancestors,
healing our communities, through our children, generations forward.

This focus will grow in depth and color with each gifted person who
chooses to assist nurturing it :).

Blessings of abundance Healing together, within to without! :)

Sincerely,

Tanya and the Gang. :) ~
