Life In the Woods

A community on a small and intimate scale.
Room to roam. Art to inspire us. Idyllic places to meditate.
A group of people who think seriously about net-zero
living and a belief that we can all benefit by creating a space
that brings us closer to nature… and to ourselves.

IMAGINE

What if there were only two rules?

1. Don’t take down any trees
2. Use only renewable energy sources

The rest is up to you…

SITE
600 acres on the Monterey Peninsula. 22 homesites. A landscape
that seems to dissolve the boundaries between lot and open space. Here
nature will be the inspiration for all that we do.
PURPOSE

The Walden Gathering came together after a challenge was made to create a purposeful platform that would allow a private forest and a group of passionate innovators to find inspiration from Nature to focus on making the world better for generations to come.

Walden Gathering
BECOME A FOUNDER
At a time when so many of us live our lives connected
to work or connected to our devices, maybe its time
to try something new. Maybe its time to reconnect
with ourselves, with our families and true friends and
with a large sense of what life is really about.

TEAM
The story begins in 2016 when we gathered with architects, designers, strategists, environmental engineers, landscape architects, and artists to create a new vision for a small sustainable community that would flourish on 600 acres of the Monterey Peninsula. We were fortunate to work with some of the leading voices of our generation, and we are confident that Walden will be stronger for having had these invigorating and fruitful debates.
