Review for Lost Valley Center Inc, Dexter, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I completed a year long internship learning about Permaculture and Land management. The experience was highly enlightening and completely hands-on. The teaching was extremely quality and I consider it an invaluable learning experience. Anyone with interest/experience in Permaculture would benefit from studying under one of the NorthWest's elder Permaculturists, Rick Valley. I loved the entire culture at Lost Valley, from the daily work to the community gatherings and intern meetings. Along with the other interns, staff, and LV residents, there were daily meals with vegan options, which was great. The land upon which the Education Center lies is absolutely beautiful in a setting of old doug fir and Oregon White Oak. There is a large Camas meadow around which people taking classes camp. There are several gardens and a creek that runs through the property. It is a great place with amazing people who have so much love and positive vibration to offer the world. I recommend visiting or taking a class if possible...or if you have the freedom and time--do an internship--you won't be disappaointed.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

become a complete demonstration site of sustainable living using permaculture principles, ecological "green" building, and renewable technologies.
