Our vision is to establish a transitional village that provides opportunities to those who are
currently without housing to build human-scaled communities and work with other community
members to develop relationships and skills that will enable them to transition to a more
sustainable lifestyle. The village rests on the notion that self-governance provides residents
with autonomy, responsibility, and respect. Design and organization of the village will be based
upon best practices derived from a comprehensive study of long standing “tent cities” and tiny
house villages in the United States, lessons learned from local encampments, and a creative
understanding of permaculture principles.
