Sacred Garden Sanctuary is an intentional community dedicated to sustainable farming and lifestyle, on 40 acres of land located near Douglas, Arizona
The Sanctuary Land in 1996
We believe all life is sacred, and treating life as sacred changes our behavior to preserve and care for living ecosystems and the species that comprise them. We also believe that human life is sacred and our lives should be lived with intention, awareness, and a desire to learn and grow (see video below).
Gardens are the core of human life, sustaining and nourishing us with organic, healthy fruits and vegetables. We believe humans are happiest and healthiest when gardening is part of our lives.
We consider Sacred Garden Sanctuary to be a safe zone, away from areas most affected by economic collapse, global warming, or earth changes. We are working towards a community that is as self-sufficient as practicable.
