The Lost Valley Blog.
Hello Nature lovers!
Lost Valley is open to interviewing people interested in camping in community for a number of months during the sunny season. We call this a site-lease option. The cabins and other houses are currently inhabited, but the community is open to inviting those who may want to provide their own housing as a site-leaser at Lost Valley. This is a chance to pay a very affordable rent to provide your own temporary housing to stay at Lost Valley where there are great things happening all the time. You must interview with the community, no pets. There is an application process for site-leasers, same as other renters, described on this website under “Housing.”
There is no guarantee of housing space opening up when the rainy season comes, but one can move to a dormitory room for the winter if so desired.
Huge RV’s are not the simplest to accommodate, but there may be availability; Check-in with “housing(at)lostvalley.org” if an RV is your desired temporary home.
“Ellen Page is currently on a media blitz for her new eco-thriller “The East” – which means there’s a lot of interviewers getting schooled on environmental buzzwords like permaculture, freeganism, and more…”
Check out the full clip from “Conan” – which also features a bit of Ellen juggling and sharing more about her Lost Valley days at minute 23.
Another short interview on community and making of the film:

The 2012 LVEC PDC was a resounding success! Two weeks, 14 intrepid students, and a whole lot of sustainable learnin’. Let’s stack those functions again next year – same time, same place.
Also – this quote from USA TODAY
“I went to Oregon to study permaculture and lived in an eco-village for a month outside Eugene. It’s called Lost Valley. It was amazing and exactly what I needed, because there had been the Juno thing, where you’re getting a lot of attention… You’re learning how to live in a holistic way with the cycles of the Earth. At one point I was digging goat (manure) and putting it into a wheelbarrow, and while shoveling it, I just went, ‘Oh, my God, this is exactly what I want to be doing right now.’ “ -Ellen Page
