Welcome Home


Our mission is to provide opportunities for individuals to thrive in a sustainable community setting through a shared focus on optimal health, creativity, Earth stewardship, increased Self-awareness and peaceful living.

Help Us Grow

Emerald Grove is an aspiring intentional community and sustainable ecological-village currently forming in Springfield, Oregon.  We are in the process of gathering the tribe, learning to live peacefully together and in the future we may pursue non-profit status.  We are fine tuning our vision documents as our collective dream develops.

 Building Community

The main focus of Emerald Grove is fostering optimum health and well-being for individuals and the planet.  We take actions to live toxin-free, voting with our dollars and being mindful of the products we use and their impact on all of life.

Emerald Grove is dedicated to modeling and teaching a simple, natural, balanced lifestyle and providing healing to the public.  We are learning to master self-love as a step towards self-realization and better relationships.  We honor the Divinity in all of Creation and celebrate it in our own unique ways.  We come together to support each other in self-development.

We are experimenting with alternative ways of living.  We are learning to be more self-sufficient and taking control of the quality of the food we eat and the medicines we use.  We are learning how nature assists us in healing when we take time to listen to our bodies, nurture them, and give them what they need.

A Multi-faceted, Inclusive Community

People with other gifts than healing may also become community members, as this is a multi-faceted undertaking and there will be many jobs to do.  Our community will include those skilled in permaculture, organic farming, aquaponics, natural building, woodworking, sustainable energy infrastructures, art, music, dance, cooking, co-counseling, yoga, qi gong, IT and more.
