Wild Plum Hedge Campsite
We will definitely be back to CSC! It was an immaculate, beautiful clearing. They provided very thoughtful accommodations including seating, a picnic table, cooking water, dry newspaper, kindling and firewood. We made fast friends with the goats too. We highly recommend booking a site.

Permaculture "Earth Shelter" Cabin
Amazing Nature, Beautiful Cabin
This was our second trip to the cabin and I think we enjoyed it even more this time. There is so much to explore on this property! We were lucky to be there for the migration of the Monarch butterflies this time!

Relaxation and learning ;)
We had a wonderful weekend tent camping at CSC Permaculture Project :) Recommend getting a tour of the land and pitching your tent NOT under an apple tree during late summer/autumn, lol. Also, if you have access to a telescope, borrow or bring one -- we were able to see the fully illuminated Harvest Moon and alignments of Jupiter and Saturn🤩. Big love and many thanks to Heather, William, Big Mama, and Buddy!

Wild Plum Hedge Campsite
The space is a beautiful and well marked. The description given was very helpful, especially since we set up camp after dark. Our host was responsive, attentive, and a wealth of information during the tour of the permaculture sites of CSC. I hope to return!

NEW Hammock Haven
Truly a haven
Hammock Haven was such a lovely spot! Shady, quiet, and all of the essentials for a quick nature getaway from the city.

Lookout below! Falling apples!
Great campsite. Our tent was pelted with apples falling from the trees all night long but that was just part of the fun!
