It is with great pleasure that we announce that phase I of the Quail Springs Capital Campaign to buy the land was completed in early 2018. The enormity of this collective action cannot be overstated. We extend profuse gratitude to the many donors who contributed and helped us raise the money to buy these precious 450-acres to be stewarded in perpetuity. With this first phase of our fundraising accomplished, we have turned our focus to other aspects of our 5-year strategy, including program development, social justice work and partnerships, policy and advocacy in the realms of water protection and natural building, and staff development. 

In 2019, a feasibility study will be undertaken concentrating on Phase II of the capital campaign, focusing on water, solar, and farm infrastructure upgrades. This phase will enable Quail Springs’ to move beyond its current infrastructural limitations and to grow so we can meet the demand for our programs. A major focus of this effort is our intention to work closely with the county to design a ‘bridge’ building – a multi-purpose educational center – that will move forward the legalization of safe, affordable, non-toxic buildings. This building will enable our team to host larger, more frequent trainings. Stay tuned for more information and thank you for any and all support.

OUR 200 YEAR VISION FUELS OUR WORK

For Quail Springs, we hold dearly and genuinely a vision that extends 200-years into the future. This vision includes our 200-year Permaculture Plan. In a society where we often starve our grandchildren to feed our children and ourselves, Quail Springs has chosen to dedicate and consciously design the outcomes of our work today to benefit those children who we will never meet and those elders we will never sit with. We do this by taking responsibility for how we live, what we teach, and how we function as a group of people striving to know and honor the origins of all that sustains us. Whether it’s installing a greywater system, building with natural materials, constructing a compost pile, planting trees, or working on the farm, we’re looking seven generations ahead to ensure the well-being of our children and the land.

Quail Springs is a hub for people to share and discover ways of deepening their understanding of regenerative living. Our various offerings train individuals to be leaders in developing agro-ecosystems and communities that are culturally vibrant, ecologically equitable, natural capital rich, and steeped in social justice. We do this through our leading educational nonprofit that stewards a 450-acre, high desert permaculture farm and conservation site and we teach, among other things:

  • Nature connection

  • Regenerative food production

  • Social & environmental justice

  • Watershed restoration

  • Natural building

  • Origin skills

  • Holistic & relationship-based international development

  • Design skills for regenerative community organizing

  • Natural resource stewardship & connection

We recognize and acknowledge the different paths each person takes toward living regeneratively. Quail Springs attracts people who choose to more deeply examine their role in the health of their communities and the planet. Although we are a small environmental organization we are making a big impact in the lives of people all over the world. The experiences gained by all who come to Quail Springs are quenching a deep longing for connection, community, and are planting the seeds of hope for a regenerative future.
