Over 10 acres of desert silence, open skies, and peace.

When you drive down the dirt road to our property, the land will begin to feel familiar...a lot like coming home. For the past few months, we have cultivated a small garden with harvested rain water, feeding this piece of earth the nutrients and water it has been lacking for so long. In return, we are blessed with a friendly and welcoming space, relaxing breezes, gorgeous skies, and a calm sense of place.

AVAILABILITY

We often camp here while working on the garden. If you'd like our presence, great! It's just a small group of artists, farmers, and other ecological souls. If you'd like to be alone, also great! We will make sure not visit or work during your stay.

TOILET

There is a compost pit for urination, only. About a 30-second walk south is a mature joshua tree, where you can squat and leave your other remains. It is important to keep your humanure separate from the compost pit, as the area by the joshua tree will be cycled back into the garden after one full year of curing. *If you'd like to reserve a portable toilet to make your trip a little easier, you are more than welcome to select that extra option during your booking.

VIEWS

Our property is located just over the mountain range. It is normally extremely silent, but on occasion you will hear a distant generator or an airplane. You will be able to see clear skies, 360 degree mountains in the distance, and pure desert without any main roads.

VEGETATION

While most of the camping area is cleared of thorny brush, please be aware of stepping off-path, as there are various native bushes with spiky exteriors that can get through clothing (and leave your skin feeling itchy).

NEIGHBORS AND PRIVACY

There are no fences, which means you are in an open clearing. There are three homes in the very far distance, including a hoop house. Since the roads and neighbors are very far away, it will still feel private--but please be mindful.

WILDLIFE

While we haven't actually seen a coyote or dog on the property, we know one has visited our garden because of the droppings they leave behind. You will also notice the occasional vole--a tiny mouse-like creature that burrows underground. Birds of prey circle above. There is a lot of insect activity--including desert stink beetles, worms, large ants, and more--in the garden. We have spotted a roadrunner several times; it stops by to eat and peck at our tree.
