Living Center Oregon

Sustainable Living Center Oregon


Sunday we meet from 1 pm  to 6 pm  (rain or shine) at 82 Siletz Hwy, near the intersection of Hwy 101 and RT 229 (rain or shine)

It is our opinion that a critical imbalance of food demand and food supply is coming.  

According to new research from Yale University and Michigan State University the world has already reached Peak Food production.   Click Here to see their new research “Have we reached ‘peak food’?   Shortages loom as global production rates slow.”

products_press3This crisis will peak sometime before the year 2030 leaving large groups of people without enough to eat. Our food production can be affected by a Northwest Tsunami, changing weather patterns, factory farming, increasing price of oil, dwindling supplies in fish\crops, global debt, inflation or total economic collapse.

When the crisis does come you have a choice be a Grower, a Hoarder or a Detainee of the Homeland Security Dept.

Regardless of how much food you hoard, there is a limit.

Food production on the cool Oregon Coast is different from food production in hot humid Iowa. We have an Education and Research Center in Lincoln City, Oregon and an 80 acres experimental ranch in Siletz, Oregon.  At each location we experimented with Sustainable, Permaculture and Off the Grid techniques and technology to use existing material to solve our food production challenges of the coast.

Research Center is a Living and Learning Laboratory with Free Mentoring Sessions

Mentoring Sessions

Education being a major component of our work at the Center, participants are exposed too much more than the typical Sustainable Living experience. We help each find what will bring internal JOY.

As part of the program there are free 5 hours of Mentoring Sessions in the follow areas:

  • Sustainable Food
  • Happiness
  • Financially Free

Some current existing examples of Sustainable Food are:

Seeds: Free Heirloom Seeds

Vegetables: New Ways to Grow                                                        ……

Tomatoes: From July to Thanksgiving

Lettuce: Grow lettuce all year on your deck when there is no electrical power

Chickens: Eggs & Chickens when there is no chicken feed to buy              

What else is needed?

Fertilizer: When there is no fertilizer to purchase

Rain Water Harvesting: When you are out of bottled water

Food Storage: Airless Food Storage before a Tsunami and after

Garden Protection: Elimination Garden Slugs


Happiness Mentoring


The Secrets of Happiness Mentoring offers a comprehensive guide to understanding what happiness is, and isn’t, and what can be done to bring us all closer to the happy life we envision for ourselves. You will be introduced to the latest results of positive psychology from Harvard, Stanford, Loyola University, U of Chicago, U of Penn, U of California – Davis, and U of Minnesota.  By using these results one can increase their happiness level.

The Mentoring offers a new and potentially life-changing ways to understand our innate relationships of joy and happiness as well as our ability to sustain it in our lives.

Nearly all of us buy into the myths of happiness—beliefs that certain adult achievements (marriage, wealth, children) will make us forever happy and that certain adult failures or adversities (illness, divorce) will make us forever unhappy. Overwhelming research evidence show this is not true by joining this study group on Wednesdays you can learn how to increase your happiness.

Financially Free Mentoring

To be Financially Free means you have the ability to live the lifestyle you desire without having to work or rely on anyone else for money.financially-free


Many people think that there are hundreds of routes to become Financially Free.  You’ll see that there is a path to become financially free and that one of those paths is the correct one for you.

According to statistics, nine (9) out every ten (10) entrepreneurs fail.
Only 3% of all online businesses actually make ANY money.

The successful people who have achieved financial freedom through following their natural path highlight these paths. This is to say; they found the match that suited their TAGs (Talents, Attributes, and Gifts)

Could you imagine Richard Branson as a footballer, or Bill Gates as a fishmonger?

No, they discovered the TAGs they were born with and capitalized on them. They followed a path that they loved, their path of least resistance and they excelled at it.

Wouldn’t you like to find your path, benefit from your natural strengths and excel?

    I am interested in learning more about homesteading and sustainable living, and the RV parking barter/hour trade program and to see if it’s right for me at this time. Is there a phone number or email address where I can contact someone about the program so I can determine if this would be the right step or if waiting for a time in the future would be more suitable. email address is
