Open House at WILD COOPERATIVE – October 16th, 2022, 10AM-5PM

Are you a farmer with no land security?

The Wild Cooperative is an off-grid land sharing community in western Colorado which honors all life as part of our family and relatives. We are also an education and demonstration site for regenerative living skills.

We are presenting a unique opportunity for an experienced farmer or a homesteader. We are looking for a responsible person(s) to create perennial and annual food systems. In exchange we are offering a long term future agreement for mutual health and growth.

Find out more about the land here: https://wildcooperative.wordpress.com/about-the-land/

Join us on October 16, 2022 between 10am and 5pm for an open house gathering to see the opportunities in person.

WHEN: SUNDAY, OCTOBER 16TH, 10AM-5PM
WHERE: AT THE WILD COOPERATIVE IN CRAWFORD, COLORADO (EMAIL US FOR DETAILS AND DIRECTIONS AT WILDCOOPERATIVE@HOTMAIL.COM)

Hi Greame. Yes, it's an amazing place with a wonderful community. At this point we can only offer a land to build on with a septic to tie into, potable water nearby, no power (unless you tie into the grid on the road or your own solar). Thank you for your interest. Let me know if you have more questions.

The Wild Cooperative is a fairly new education and demonstration site and an intentional regenerative community in Western Colorado. In the spirit of biocentrism and collaboration, this site is offering creative space for workshops, activism, and community-building. Our vision is to be surrounded by energy efficient homes, perennial food forest gardens, healthy soils, clean reliable water and healthy air. Just as we design this resilient system on the ground we nurture similarly supportive social, economic, cultural, and educational guilds.
To learn more about us please go to https://wildcooperative.wordpress.com/about-us-2/

We offer three main ways to become a part of our community:

As a Member

Our new community member will resonate with our mission and vision statements. Ideally, for our forming community, they will be skilled natural builders with a wide range of maintenance and repair skills and be experienced in off grid living as well as a good communicator. That being said, a variety of skills and knowledge may be an asset to our community – we strive for diversity on many levels. When the whole community accepts the prospective member, they will agree to act in accordance to the covenants and the operating agreement by signing both documents. We have one homesite available for a $100,000 membership fee (plus any improvements that were made specifically to the site by the community, for example a septic system). The site offers many possibilities and the community is open to financing.

As a Caretaker/Homesteader

We are looking for a person, a couple, or a family to live year-round on-site to maintain many aspects of a community-owned off-grid homestead and education center; preferably, someone who resonates with our mission and vision statements and is interested in joining the community but is unable to meet the financial obligations. We want to set up a long term relationship and we foresee this ideal caretaker to receive reciprocal care from our community and be possibly offered a membership in the future.

Regular work hours are approximately 10 hours per week per adult caretaker in exchange for land to live on.

Sought out traits of an ideal caretaker:
- Reliable, Skilled, Passionate, and Flexible
- Willing and able to complete many tasks and work with little direct supervision
- Good communication and leadership skills
- Physically able to work outdoors in all types of weather

The responsibilities will include natural building, carpentry, plumbing, electrical, basic manual labor, etc. Caretakers must be able to safely operate a farm truck and other equipment including power and hand tools. This role will be most suited for an experienced off-gridder.
Depending on your skills and knowledge there are possibilities to teach workshops and lead interns in projects.

As an Intern

Internships at the Wild Cooperative are a great way to experience and learn how to increase your handprint and reduce your footprint on the Earth. Participants will learn off-grid rural life skills, enjoy a pace of life that is in tune with the natural rhythms of the seasons, engage in group planning and enrich self-directing practices.

Our internship season runs from May through October. We request a minimum of a 6 week commitment. Wholesome meals are shared by the community at least once a day. Tent camping accommodations are offered. The average week will include about 4 days of hands-on activities. Hours will fluctuate from week to week, averaging at 35.

Sought out traits of an ideal intern:
- Physically able bodied and Emotionally sound
- Self motivated, Interested in learning and leadership
- Good communication skills and Flexible
- Financially stable and Good references

We ask that people coming as interns pay $300 for the first month to cover their food and other costs (total $500 for 6 weeks). After the 6 weeks, with a mutual evaluation of your stay here, there is a possibility to remain longer and the Wild Cooperative would cover your costs for the remainder of your stay.

We are open to offering to cover food costs or possibly offer a small stipend to an experienced alternative energy/natural building specialist.
