Come stay in the forests of Shelburne, MA. Our site offers private camping in the woods, and easy-access to meadow, view of a large pond and ever-expanding permaculture gardens. The 'Healers' Headuarters' is our haven, where we grow native Fruit, Nut and Medicine plants, that we sell and use for free public plantings in towns and cities. This is the headquarters where plants are grown for our non-profit planting campaign. Likewise, we run an artisan leather shop, using a roadside barn on site that has been converted into a studio-gallery. Check out our grass-fed bison leather bags, belts, armor and sculptures.
It's time to Restore the Earth! It's time for a better world! Here, we are doing the work that we believe in, answering the call to restore our planet and help people, spreading native plants for edible-restoration, while planting a living, edible-ecological model on site! It's time to build a better world. This is our small, growing-community's space to create and SPREAD the world that we KNOW all can share in the future!
Medicines, healing arts, crafts and tasteful projects abound. We are on the path of personal and planetary growth. We invite you to stay a night, or two, or three, safely wrapped in the lively, focused, environment that supports our work. Catch a behind-the-scenes glance of our projects, and a sweet night in nature. For those who want more, consider stopping in for a leather-crafting class, plant workshop, or, invite house-chef to bring you out an incredible raw smoothie or treat.
We are perfectly positioned on Mohawk Trail, a premier destination for art, hiking, and scenic drives. This spot is a straight shot to the famed 'bridge of flowers'. We're 10 min from charming Shelburne Falls. We're en route to MASS MOCA, skiing in the winter, and leaf-peeping in fall.
You might be surprised pulling into our little kingdom, to discover that we are so close to a MAJOR ROAD.
PLEASE NOTE::: We are ON Mohawk Trail. This high-traffic site allows our work to reach the most people! HOWEVER! If you are incredibly sensitive to ROAD PRESENCE, VEHICLE NOISES, PROXIMITY TO TRAFFIC, it might be off-putting.
That said, as soon as one steps to the back behind the property, it is an oasis. The cars are out of sight (but not sound), and it's nothing but grass, plants, trees, birds, pollinators and life!
For travelers, this happens to be a VERY accessible location.

I knowingly camped in winter, so there was recent snowfall. Since it wasn't practical for me to setup camp in that type of weather (I was traveling for several days in an RV with my 17-month old and did not have winter camping gear), our host allowed us to setup our RV in the drive. We still made use of hiking around on the property, which was very pretty.
Had a great night of camping at Healers Headquarters! Our site was a short walk into the woods and had plenty of privacy, the privacy is close to the main road as noted in the description, but we didn’t mind. Really nice property and the surrounding area is beautiful! Just what we needed
The site is conveniently located right on Rte 2, close to all that Shelburne Falls and the Deerfield River have to offer. Campsites were private and well-maintained. As previously noted, you'll hear some noise from the road, but overall a great place to camp out, have a fire, and feel some seclusion.
Andrew greeted us right when we got there. We had a spot right in the open yard which was nice because it was close to our cars and the water hose. The other campsites were far enough away that we could see the glow of their fire through the trees, but couldn’t hear anybody. Great spot, I’d stay here again!
Rustic but adequate
Overall a pleasant experience. Lovely small farm feel. Hoot owls at night. Upon arrival we had difficulty understanding which site was which because they are not numbered. Couldn't even find the 4th site. You are not camping with your car and have to lug everything into the woods. The host did lend us a wheelbarrow to help. It was unclear at first what to do with trash. I would also suggest the host leave buckets of water at the site to douse fire with. And, there is heavy road noise but it wasn't too distracting.
