Feralithics embraces a new radiant, cooperative, and tribal way of being, which culminates in a habitat for at-risk youth to learn about and engage with the natural world, as well as a space for all community members to participate in permaculture, natural building, regenerative agriculture, ancestral skills, wilderness immersion, and other critical living skills for today’s and tomorrow’s world.
Feralithics is a cooperative striving to introduce the regional community to a regenerative permaculture lifeway. Take a breath and imagine our vision: “As you enter the land, you are first greeted by a bustling farm stand stocked with produce grown just yards away, locally sourced artisan crafts, and permaculture tools and resources. Adjacent to the farm stand sits The Cascadia Harvest, our carbon neutral mobile food truck, serving this week’s menu highlighting our seasonal harvest. A trail leads to the front 10 acres that are bustling with activity that befits a communally held and operated farm. All-around plots of land are being worked by animals and humans alike, as children run along playing in the fields. An instructor leads a small group of teenagers on an ethnobotany course held in a small outdoor classroom that doubles as a medicinal garden. In the distance, one can see numerous structures dotted throughout the landscape, classrooms, workshops, barn, sheds, a common house, and several private dwellings hidden throughout the nearby forest. A network of rope bridges and zip lines connects several treehouses together. Medicinal herb gardens, annuals, perennials, outdoor showers, ponds, cob ovens, and an amphitheater dot the landscape.”
