We're exploring different structures that we can build to host amazing events and I came across this one today. What if we built a structure like this and called it The Wedding Cake? What sort of structures do you think would make amazing additions to the site?

Inspiration! Imagine the difference a decade will make!

Inspiration! Imagine the difference a decade will make!

BOOM..!! and then there was PERMACULTURE..!
Moved in 7 years ago, both Nici and i originally worked full-time off farm!

What makes for a stable marriage?

American weddings are often big and extravagant. Research supports that expensive, well attended weddings last longer. What do you think about these statistics?

About a decade ago, the gossip on everyone’s lips was that “1/2 of all marriages in the U.S. end in divorce.” That factoid was later disproven, but it left a lasting impression on…

Deep in to day two of business plan writing and I just found out there's a whole magazine dedicated to Campground Management. We're missing out on all the super bowl parties, but this is vital to our success!

We took our first expedition this weekend, looking for a proper site for the campground. The main takeaway I got from it: 40 acres isn't going to cut it. This complicates things somewhat, but the search has only just begun!

Joel Salatin: Stacking Fiefdoms

I spent a lot of my life without heroes. Finding permaculture and seeing the awesome things that people are doing in the field has really inspired me. This man in particular seems to have a similar mind to my own and I absolutely adore the concepts he's espousing here. As we build the campground, I see so many opportunities that we can pursue, leveraging the abundance of the land.

This talk really illustrated to me the ways that we can begin to support a community on the land and allow people the autonomy to do the things they love.

Using Polyface farm as an example, Salatin offers templates for structuring symbiotic partnership fiefdoms for multi-generational farm success. Rather than b...

As far as the name, I was thinking that you grow corn on a corn farm, strawberries on a strawberry farm, so I thought it would be nice to call it the Family Farm.

Our first major party will be the creation of a rocket stove bench. The mechanics of it are pretty simple, just a cylinder inside a cylinder, with a large bench gathering all the heat flowing to the right. We plan to mix up some cob, which is a mixture of clay, sand, water, and straw, which will allow us to sculpt the structure into place to cook, gather, and relax.

Art throughout the grounds will also serve as a site for weddings and celebrations. Support for local artists will support the memory and love of those who share special times together here.

Long term, we dream of opening a lodge which we can invite all our loved ones together under one roof, host merriment to the wee hours of the morning, and provide shelter for those you cherish. This is an even bigger undertaking than putting together the campground, so this one is in our back pocket for a few years down the road.

Our plan includes the creation of a productive food forest, a system in which an abundant diversity of species come together to support a complete ecosystem that requires very little human intervention once it's installed. Hosting weddings amongst this setting of sustainable abundance is a beautiful metaphor for the wish of sustainable abundance in the next chapter of those who are wed there.

This is pretty close to the dream kitchen. It's got a hearth for making pizza and baking bread. A large grill, refrigerators, great counter space, ventilation, lighting and speakers. There are so many details here that would contribute to a great party and I've got a few more that I'd love to add. Building an outdoor kitchen of this caliber is a high priority.

This is the type of tent we aim to provide to encourage even those who say they'd never go camping to come out. Having this level of accommodation will allow your loved ones to relax and be at home during their stay at our campground.
