Here is a snapshot of my long term PHILOSOPHY of my land. Especially apt at this time. It is an essay I found in a WeMoon 2009 Calendar and was attributed to "anonymous":
Resting place, a stop on the current- underground railroad for today’s earth activists. This is a place where wanderers, weary or not, can light for a while, tell their stories, get their hands in the garden dirt,or sit in silence.
Because of the current political climate, these kinds of safe places are becoming increasingly important for those who tread the path of change-invokers and rabble-rousers. For many, the choice to be an activist means being without a permanent home.
This is a place for those who have chosen the Gypsy’s road to ground, reconnect to Mother Earth, recharge so they can go out into the world again with renewed inspiration, energized to do the vital work of steering the world onto a healthier path.
Warm beds,private space, healthy food, patience. These are our contributions for making positive change in the world.

It was great getting to meet the host, Sophia, at this location. Upon arriving, we took a tour of the property, as she explained all the things they were growing around the property. The tent sites were well established, and were located in a secluded spot right along the river. The farm animals were playful and fun to run around with, and the hospitality Sophia provided made the experience very enjoyable.
Permaculture camp along the river
Really enjoyed staying at Sophia's. Sophia is very kind and she has a great permaculture landscape. She was helpful and gave us lots of options for hikes in the area.
There was a place for a fire and we used the platform overlooking the water to do yoga. Sophia showed us around her property and told us about the plants and trees growing there. We got to learn about Mashua - a plant in relation to the nasturtium. Her animals are so friendly, chickens freely roamed the property.
We had a lovely and relaxed stay.
We will be coming back!!!
If you are looking for a secluded, quiet, safe, Creekside experience, this is the place. Our children were free to walk the property, without fear from other campers, random dogs, or poison oak. The creek can be heard while you sleep, and it was clear and healthy. Sophia was an amazing host, generous, and kind to our two young children. Perfect experience.
Wholesome extended-family experienc
This was the most wholesome camping experience! Sophia is so friendly, there's berry picking right on the land, and sitting by the creek is so calming! There are lots of animal friends to greet you, too! The individual sites have a communal, extended family feel to them, and it was fun getting to know our neighbors around the campfire! We're definitely going to come back soon!
Great getaway and kind host!
What a great weekend away from the city! Sophia was very generous with sharing her berry patches and access to explore throughout her small permaculture farmland and the creek.
There was plenty of firewood and fire-building materials.
The tent sites were tucked in the back side of the field. I was one of three sets of visitors while I was there, spaced out maybe 5 tent-lengths apart between tent spots. There was a hand cart to carry gear from the car to the camping site - barely a 2 minute walk. The composting toilet was very nice: not smelly and a curtain provided some privacy. Roosters crowed loudly in the morning and throughout the day. The creek babbled. I enjoyed the farm and wilderness sounds!
