Welcome

Guided by permaculture ethics and principles, we are working to deepen our connections to our selves, our community, and our natural environment. 

The Riverside Project is a collaborative learning experience rooted in the simple desire to live better.

Guided by permaculture ethics and principles, we are working to deepen our connections to our selves, our community, and our natural environment. You can find us at Riverside, an 80 acre property on the banks of the Shenandoah River in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia.

Originally purchased in 1942, Riverside has been passed down through four generations of family. The property supported dairy and crop production and housed a family-run machine repair shop before falling into disrepair over the past two decades.

Today we're working to redefine and revitalize the family farm, ensuring its relevance and resiliency for generations to come. 

Along the way, we'll be: 

  • Using regenerative practices to grow food and maximize the productive potential of our land (and sharing the lessons we learn).
  • Hosting workshops, retreats, youth programs, and events that explore permaculture, natural building, herbal medicine, yoga, and deliberate living practices. 
  • Creating a vibrant space for skill sharing, knowledge exchange, and community building.

We're on a journey to live better. Join us.
