We are governed through consensus process and highly value communication. We aim to generate awareness of societally generated oppression and create a non-hierarchical relationships in our community.

Our mission is to be eco-friendly, self sustainable, to grow gardens and give back to the community through skill shares and workshops, to reduce our carbon footprint and be a beacon of hope in a crumbling civilization, to create and utilize alternative sources of energy, to be inclusive, to be queer, non-hierarchical, and consensus-based, and to be a place for alternative family and /community structures and people who don’t fit in, and a sanctuary for the marginalized, to host shows and events that help the community, and to become a model of a self sustainability to be replicated on a large scale.
