Life in Community

Being part of a community is integral to any sustainable way of living. Community can teach us to care for and respect one another, communicate compassionately, make decisions together, and to see our individual needs in the context of the whole, while also reducing resource use through sharing (rides, food, rent, materials, etc.).

At Lost Valley, our staff and students live together in apartments, cabins, yurts, or sites or Tiny Homes, offering their skills and connecting through community meals and activities. Everyday is an educational experience at Lost Valley!
