Our property is a vortex for thrival. Many levels of sustainable abundance are in existence in our ecosystem. We have a 4 acre (1.6 hectare) property in an area of what is left of old farm land in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, which is the 3rd largest in the States. This is particularly exciting and important for many reasons. One is that MOST of the whole population lives in suburbs or cities and thus for true sustainability to be integrated into daily life of Persons in the States, these environments must be transformed and upgraded to sustainable thrival. Here there is a plethora of plant life, bug life, bird life and animals. There are many moments of quiet peace and fresh air within minutes of major civilized developments and 30 minutes from some of the largest cities in the States. Our homestead is a beautiful example of how beautifully abundant a sustainable life can be in a more urban environment. We utilize what has been coined by Quinn (sustainable visionary for the garden) “industrial harvesting.” There is a football field-sized garden that feeds up to 50 people that was fully implemented using TRASH. We use total waste of common citizen life and turn it into true value/worth. Quinn likes to say "shit into gold baby, every day." We highlight a vast spectrum of sustainable possibilities to not only thrive on, but to educate people on the abundant options for sustainable living.

There are earthen buildings being built, tree houses, tents and other inventive sustainable structures including chicken mansions and more. There are even upgrades to pre-existing commonly built unsustainable houses. There are worm farms, bee hives, and other conscious creature cultivations that contribute to important aspects of a true thriving ecosystem. The garden is the foundation and is grown without any herbicides, pesticides, or even fertilizers of any kind. There is NO purchase or monetary cost in the year-to-year existence nor is any product being used, not even organic ones. The beautiful and abundant crops that flourish here are changing depending on the all year planting season; there are spring, summer, fall and winter crops. This is the highest quality food money CANNOT buy. Not only do you have the opportunity to be a part of true sustainable thrival but you get to eat the healthiest tastiest food around. We have a food service that caters and serves high vibe cuisine to those making it a priority to eat the most sustainable life-full foods.

Life here is abundant, free and blossoming with inspiration on a daily basis. Life here is not just about sustainable agriculture but sustainable LIFE, and a beautiful life it is. This is a place for someone who really wants to experience responsible living, to be able to sustain a life anywhere in the world in ANY economy. There is a full spectrum of life skills being implemented here including the most sustainable building in the world, delicious cuisine including raw, vegetarian, vegan and even meat, fermentation, wine and beer making. There are green houses, fish farms and aquaponics. There is SO MUCH MORE. This is a diverse life of many exciting facets. If you really want to get a glimpse of a unique and revolutionary way of life this is the place to be.

Life here is very focused. Work is play and play is work. There is very little shooting the shit, hanging out or seeking entertainment. Because there is so much worth and importance in the daily life, there is little to no "work," just full days of focus. There will be opportunities to learn new skills and profound insights EVERY DAY. It is hot in the May to September months, so if you do not thrive in heat this is not the place for you during those months. If you do not like being focused, responsible and doing your best every day, this is not the place for you. This is not the type of place where there is one crop or one job or one specialty or one product. This is the type of place that is changing constantly and has new opportunity continually presenting itself.

For anyone who feels like this may be a place you want to experience, a 40-hour focused "work" week is a minimum requirement. More abundantly thriving delicious food than you can eat comes standard, as does fresh water, air, clean dirt and the opportunity to blossom in freedom. Simple shelter is provided in one of MANY options. You can choose from tree houses, large tents, or RVs. Electricity, internet and other civilized technologies are available as well as occasional rides into the matrix for adventures of importance. There are no defined length agreements as we do not want anyone who is not enhancing the overall flow, nor do we want to limit the length of time someone who is beneficial continues to play a part in the upgrade. So basically if you come, you come as responsible and focused as you are capable, and it either works or it doesn't. If it doesn't, you move on to other possibilities. If it does, then you thrive in ever upgrading life here until there is something else more important. There are many facets of business/income in our life and for anyone who is extraordinarily capable or evolves very quickly, there is the potential for paid positions after periods of successful internship. This is a WAY better option than paying for school. Not only do you learn but activate possibility for a paid role in sustainable thrival. Even if you are well-educated or maybe even high paid, you may prefer the sustainably conscious life, once experienced.

Children and pets are open to consideration, meaning they are not absolutely excluded but this requires in depth conversation before acceptance as there are many new factors at play in these dynamics. One of the foundations for life here is children and education is a powerful facet of the revolutionary power here. This is a whole new spectrum of possibility and importance which can be explored in more depth elsewhere.

English and Spanish are both spoken, and persons speaking other languages are welcome if they do not mind the "language barrier."
