About us

We loved the idea of Burning Man ~ radical self reliance and the co-creation of a town in the desert without the use of money. One night, at Afrika Burn, in the face of a wall of flames, we realised that in these turbulent times, we’d like to be learning stuff more than burning stuff…

….like how to be more resilient against a globalist agenda that is increasingly repressing our freedom to thrive. How to grow food, how to reduce our impact, how to trade directly with each other, how to work with natural materials and medicines, and how to acquire  healing and empowerment tools, how to be less dependent on ‘the grid’.

We love that we learn so much from all the great people we know, sharing knowledge and experience, discussing ideas and making music, but do we know how to actually live successfully in community?

We welcome all who are looking for  down-to-earth, face-to-face ways of connecting, exploring alternative options to thrive in a natural, sovereign way and building resilience for an uncertain future.
