Geoff's Story

In 2017, Geoff and his wife began building an off grid tiny home on a 200 acre farm commune. Their goal was to reduce their carbon footprint, connect with nature & people, learn valuable life skills, and eventually shift their careers to support a holistic lifestyle.

Their community shares a vision to create a biodiverse, resilient, and regenerative ecosystem that can also provide food and income. Eventually they’d like to offer food security to friends and family, and to educate visitors on regenerative farming methods as well as permaculture principles & ethics.

About Geoff's Project

Geoff’s project centers around a 1 acre forest garden as proof of concept before expanding to the surrounding fields. T0 protect the growing site, a windbreak is included as well as a swale to help capture and manage water. In order to fund startup costs, eco-lodging and off-grid getaways are being set up to offer educational and wholesome experiences for vacationers.
