The Emerald Grove Health and Wellness Center will be the focal point of our eco-village, offering many types of healing for all kinds of imbalances and illness. We focus on the whole being, including mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies. All aspects of the person must be balanced in order to alleviate pain and discomfort and heal traumas or other issues. We will offer retreats, workshops and classes where people can come to educate themselves on holistic health and well-being.

Emerald Grove will one day house a birthing center with certified midwives and doulas. Women and couples will be able to come birth their children in a loving, healing environment. Giving these children a positive start will make a huge difference in the lives of the whole family. With healers of all kinds present, expecting moms will receive the best of care.

There will also be a bed and breakfast which will also be the lodging for retreats and longer workshops. Visitors who choose to stay a while will be able to volunteer or collect time bank credits by working in the bed and breakfast. They will stay in the village hostel which is a more casual accommodation for travelers.

There will be fields of juicy berries for visitors to pick for a small fee. There will be a giant organic vegetable garden. Free-range chickens, pigs, goats, sheep, horses and alpacas will live on the farm too. They will produce fresh eggs, milk and cheese. Extra produce will be sold at the farmer’s market to support the Villages’ economy.
