Welcome to Land's Sake

established 1997


Land's Sake began as a dream to create a spot in the mountains for renewal and ecological progress.  At its beginning, it was intended to be a resource for those interested in building sustainable communities and living in harmony with the environment.  Today, the dream is realized through offering the property for use at minimal cost to students, backcountry campers, artists and other nature enthusiasts.  

The project is a five minute drive from Western Carolina University in North Carolina.  The road gains 1000 feet in elevation in one mile, and at last visit, 4-wheel drive is still necessary.  It is a challenging but enjoyable hike.  Land's Sake is five acres including a spring, primitive camping, and ridgetop area once used as a garden.  The property is "unimproved" - there are no facilities except a camping platform, latrine, and firepit.  You can rent the property for longer projects, but day and weekend use are welcome too.  Work exchange, barter or conventional lease is accepted as rent.  You must provide your own liability insurance for group events.

Plan your own visit:


Please consult the Schedule of Events and contact Stefanie at landsake@hotmail.com to reserve your time, or join an event already scheduled.


Disclaimer:  Land's Sake is still wilderness, even if it's easier to get there.  Please plan accordingly for the great outdoors and any encounters with wildlife, weather or unpleasant plants.  While rare, these encounters DO happen.
