JAI Jungle Permaculture Experience
ocala was a dream ✨
tent camping on Keith’s property was so much fun! we made use of a secluded clearing in the back but still made so much use of the communal firepit & we loved learning about permaculture & sharing likeminded ideas with both Keith & Mike, who works & lives on the land also! We were able to forage firewood on the property as well as some edible plants to add to our meals. Close proximity to the springs & easy to find. Not to mention, Jai was such a friendly angel as well to have around! 😇

Keith is a helpful nice person and gave options and explained the set up. For me it was the first night of camping in Florida and the mosquitos were a challenge. Could not sit in the car with closed doors because it was too hot , but when opening the door the mosquito invasion began. I admire Keith’s vision and the way he is building a sustainable life in this part of Florida. As a foreigner I see the challenges everybody faces there and growing a garden and living more independently is the right way to go. Also great learning for his son. The water tasted good and usually you cannot drink tap water in the US. The property is a bit wild, but that is not a problem.

I went camping here with some friends and it was a great time! So many springs and wonderful nature in the area. Keith was super helpful and quick to respond with answers and solutions whenever a question or concern arose. Definitely recommend visiting the local springs and maybe in the drive-in theatre if you’re into that! Will be back!

It’s a vision in work. A dream for a permaculture orchard. As such, it’s a bit unique. Keith was very welcoming during my stay and was a bit nicely hidden away.
