I'd heard about this place, but recently we were able to actually visit it and tour the area. Very interesting, love the concept of living off the grid and using materials we already have to build a home. There is a short video as part of the entrance fee, it was interesting. I loved learning about how they recycle all of their water and how it collects on the roof during a rain or snowstorm. My only suggestion for the visit, was I wished we could haven't gotten a personal tour with a "guide" as I think we could have learned even more vs. touring the area by ourselves.
