We support all humans, all ways of doing things . Each person needs to decide for themselves what works for them and their family . 

Being outside, in fresh air and sunshine does our mind and body good. 

We all need healing and being in Mother Nature does the trick in being a whole and happy person. 

  We are an Urban Permaculture space . 

About the FIRE  ban . The South West is in a major drought . You  are allowed to use a camp cook stove , to cook food(  up off the ground)  . There are NO open fire pits , to sit in front of ( like a circle of rocks on the ground ), too dangerous . And we have a BBQ grill that you can use, it is for wood or briquettes . We have hoses to put fires out, if need be, 

We are NOT a RV Park ,Nor are we a "Camp ground ". If you sleep in your car / truck / or van. You are in a driveway but get to use the whole garden for personal use . Set up like 5 tiny cafe spots . For work, making food, eating , brewing  coffee and teas. Or just resting , talking to family , friends . We have great WIFI !!

 We are a private fruit and herbs / flower urban garden . Walled in private wildlife safety space and retreat space.  .

We  became a certified National Wildlife / Bird Sanctuary, 2 years ago. 

 We are so proud to be able to serve, Mother Nature all her children including humans . We do land healing as well as healing for humans .  

We are building more recycled materials spaces, outside ovens  and a new coffee bar . We started this month , Jan. 2022. 

We will be done with those projects by June , 2022 .

 We have won two gardening awards in the past , From the Gaia Guild , under the category of , Recycled Materials Garden . We are back at it. EASY !

Michaela's garden was a great motel alternative in Abq. The garden itself is lovely and access to the bathroom inside the house was a big plus! Just an fyi, the two camping spots sit along the side of the garden/house so can't accommodate big tents. All in all, a comfy, safe experience :)

We enjoyed our stay! Good location, nice host, and lovely garden. Use of the house bathroom / shower a bonus. Electric plug-in would be nice for the price. But we still managed fine, and would stay again.
