Our philosophy is based on our wish to only be loving in all that we do and we recognize that we individually are responsible for our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. We are self sufficient in water and heating, have extensive organic vegetable (see produce) and medicinal herbs gardens. We have solar, wind and steam power production which provides the bulk of our needs.
