Openings at Survival Sanctuary near Mt. St. Helens, SW Washington/NW Oregon

We are a little Sanctuary in the foothills of Mt. St. Helens east of Kelso, WA. House at m 300′ elevation, 5 forested acres (alder, maple, cedar, fir, blackberries), directly adjacent to millions of acres of uninhabited forest land where we can freely roam (deer, elk, wild turkeys, m coyotes, cougar?) We are wilderness-based, not city, town, or farm-based.

We plan to keep the Team small for many reasons, including that our fallout shelter only holds 6.

We are prepared for nuclear war, disease plague (by self-isolation), climate disruption (although our weakness is forest fire), and general financial/commercial/political collapse (by self-sufficiency). We are also in fairly good shape for most Black Swans (earthquake, etc.) The Sanctuary is prepared to make the transition to complete and permanent self-sufficiency if necessary (gardening, hunting, fishing, herbal medicine).

Current members include a mental-health therapist, a mechanical engineer, a medical pathology assistant, and a plant nursery worker. We have many other skills among us.

In new people, we are more interested in maturity and good values than any certain skills, but you must be fairly well educated, open to learning, and willing to teach what you know. Emotional stability, intelligence, patience, respect, cooperation, and intuition are highly valued. We are NOT interested in control freaks, politicians, chatter boxes, or the judgmental, impulsive, lazy, or defensive.

Excellent health and mobility, and strong immune systems, are necessary. No drug dependencies (including recreational), significant food allergies, or claustrophobia. Politics and religion must be kept strictly personal. No costs (other than your own gear), but you must have reliable transportation.

This Sanctuary is not a residential situation for most members during normal times, but a retreat location where we gather about 6 weekends a year to explore, work, learn, and play. We also stay ready to dash to the Sanctuary if/when “something” happens. We have 2 openings, suitable for individuals, a couple, or parent and youth. We only consider youth who are capable of completely grown-up behavior whenever it is needed (minimum age of about 8), and we would look at the youth’s qualities and motivations, just as we would with an adult.

The Sanctuary is strictly private, not associated with any government, business, or religion, and we
will keep all communications confidential:

Hello to all like-minded, …
My posting is a reach-out, invite to anyone that lives in the country. May you be on a Farm, Ranch or just rural living. I am looking for a live-in room & board relationship in trade for my labor (with good old farm boy skills). If you are in need of someone (like myself) to help you with your ongoing chores and all those other fix-it and repairs that seem to always prevail. I would like to throw my hat in the ring for you to consider me… I’m in my early 60’s and keep myself in good shape. I am very good with my hands (a handyman type as they say) when I was younger I lived on a farm in the Mid-West. I’ve been living in the City for the last several years, I’m now finding myself with this insatiable erg to move back to the country…
Here are some bullet points for you to consider:
*I am a great worker with an I can-do-attitude!
*I’m Healthy with a positive & pleasant disposition
*I like being outdoors the most
*I was raised on a vegetable farm, gardening is in my blood.
*I don’t watch TV or listen to the radio
*I am a good cook and enjoy making meals
*I’m very clean and keep my space clean as well.
*I like building and repair things. I take pride in my work.
*No criminal record, not even a speeding ticket.
*I’m a single man and no family to speak of.
*I don’t do drugs, don’t smoke & drink socially very little.
*I love animals and I enjoy working in the barn and in the fields.
*I’m an artist with much passion for my craft. I sculpting in stone and I do some bronze as well. So I would ask and like for a small area/place to sculpt in.
So if you find yourself liking what you’ve read and felt it resonates with you… Then please give me a call: 706-313-4346 or email:
I’d enjoy sharing stories.:)
Best always!

An Invitation to come and live love and pursue a life of excellence as Dr. McPherson so eloquently puts it.
I have been entrusted with a piece of Mother Earth going on 22 years now. The property is located in Montana 30 miles North of Missoula Montana that I am wanting to share this most magical and abundant place with others.
Located 30 miles North of Missoula, Montana.

This 40-acre secluded property has very fertile dirt for gardening as I have grown huge organic gardens here in the past. It has some very large virgin timber (fir pine birch aspen poplar cottonwood) a artesian spring as well as the back boundary has a medium size river which originates out of Native lands on the Flathead Confederated Reservation.
I have recently returned to this place I call home and wanting others that have a large array of skill sets to come and join me for the times ahead that have mastered being honest, reliable, loving-compassionate human beings.

My plans are to bring in an excavator and build a combination of Mike Oehler and other’s work in building underground homes. He built the first underground house for 50.00 in the 70’s. More info at
You as well can see many example pictures on Pinterest
The power and well are in and I also brought in an older 2 bedroom 14 x 70 mobile home that has been used as a rental to keep the place attended to in my absence. That could be used as a living area while the underground projects are completed.

I reside in a old 60 plus year old cabin here on the property.

Since returning in April of this year I have planted a food forest/edible landscapes such as grapes, raspberries, strawberries, currants, plums, artic kiwi, cherries, goji-berries sea-berry to name a few, and the kitchen garden has been started consisting of watermelon, cantaloupe, cucumbers, squash and greens.
I have also fell numerous large and small trees for the underground project and purchased some of the epdm rubber membrane for the roof of these homes.
A little about me. As long as I can remember I have danced to the beat of my own drum. I have most of the time gone against the grain and learned much in doing so. I was voted woman of the year in Missoula Mt in the 80’s, was the first woman to be hired in Montana for the State of Montana Dept of Transportation for driving truck, as well as the 2nd to be hired for the same in the 5 state Northwest.

I am not religious but I do believe there is a Creator. I am 60 years young.
