I was a student at Lost Valley for the fall 2017 Holistic Sustainability Semester, and have nothing but positive things to say about the place! The program was incredibly organized, bringing in amazing teachers that led discussions and practice on so many engaging and important topics. The residents at Lost Valley were extremely warm and welcoming to all of the students, and truly enriched my experience there. The home cooked meals were nourishing and delicious, and it was a joy to see how much of the garden produce was incorporated into everyday eating. The property is so beautiful, encapsulating the Oregon landscape perfectly- oak savanna, evergreen forests, rainforest-esque stream valleys- offering a majestic place to wander and explore. I appreciate and respect the community's honesty about where they are on the path to sustainability, calling themselves an aspiring eco-village. For anyone curious about community living, or looking for a unique educational opportunity, this is the place for you!
