8.7 Acres, One Vision. We Are Building A Demonstration Project That Shows How To Create Truly Sustainable Community. Using Permaculture. Our idea is to: -Develop the overall biological health of the property, thereby increasing abundance and sustainable utilization of the land -Utilize the space for educational and demonstration purposes in accordance with our vision, mission, and goals -Create approaches and programs (Like Hipcamp!) to make the property economically self-supporting and capable of generating income for the CSC and for individuals working upon the property -Support the experience of community on the property by providing opportunities for meaningful relationships among those who work with the land and among those who visit the property for recreation, education, and meditation -Work to make the property inviting to the CSC participants, Stelle residents, and community visitors

Permaculture "Earth Shelter" Cabin
Great place for a weekend getaway
It's great to have options. The cabin is very nice, clean, and warm even when the overnight temperatures approach the 30s. There is also enough room to set up a tent if you want that option. There is a large fire pit as well as a smaller contained fire pit with a chimney. Even when it rains, you can sit on the porch and enjoy a fire in the smaller pit. The composting toilet system works well. This was my first time camping and it went smoothly. The owners are also nice and helpful.

Permaculture "Earth Shelter" Cabin
Peaceful, clean, time to u plug.
Absolutely peaceful, clean, and wonderful! The host met us at the entrance, very kind gentleman. The cabin is simple but clean and warm for ‘camping’ in October! It’s safe and we had a great bonfire. I would go back here in a heartbeat! No internet/cellphone reception, which is exactly what we wanted!!

Permaculture "Earth Shelter" Cabin
Beautiful, quiet space
We chose this place last minute, and so glad we did. It's close to the City of Chicago, and easy to get to. It's such a beautiful and peaceful space, with friendly host. The ground is well kept, and the cabin had ample space to set up the tent for our family. The cabin space is very secluded and quiet which was perfect for our kids/dogs. It allows us to relax and wind down. Overall great experience!

Wild Plum Hedge Campsite
We had an amazing time at CSC! Short walk from the car but felt like the middle of nowhere. Lots of native plants and wildlife. Hosts were amazing and responded quickly. The stars were amazing! Can’t recommend enough!
