About Us

We are the residents of the Bosque Village, and we write about our struggles, adventures, and successes as we create and maintain our paradise.

The Bosque Village was founded in 2004 on 80 acres of pine, oak, and madrone forest. We are off the grid, using no outside water or power. By adjusting our lifestyle we have enough power from solar panels and enough water from rain catchment. The solar panels also offer enough power to have internet using laptop computers. We are a space for artists, writers, meditators, exercise enthusiasts, and creative friends to enjoy. Our goal is to live with nature using minimal resources for maximum benefit.

We are a mix of intentional community, permaculture farm, volunteer opportunity, research center, utopian experiment, retreat center and campground.

Our facilities include a sauna, a rustic campground with camping spaces that are either deep in our magical forest or around other travelers, five cabanas, miles of trails for hiking, birdwatching, and observing wildlife, peaceful areas for yoga and meditation, composting toilets, solar panels to provide minimal power, a guesthouse for lounging, a solar hot water heater, and numerous gardens, a plant nursery, art studios and classes, large cisterns for water catchment, a telescope for stargazing and astronomy, fun dance parties, photography classes, a massage table, and the study of medicinal plants.

We are involved with reforestation, permaculture, alternatives to Burning Man, renewable energy and sustainable living. We have restored bird and butterfly habitat and by diversifying the forest will provide more habitats for other creatures who want to live with us.

We offer retreats for artists and writers, natural building classes (cob, strawbale, and adobe), wood and stone carving, ethno-botony, Day of the Dead excursions and events during Semana Santa, and much more!
