Mustard Seed Village, Camano Island, Washington Mustard Seed Village: an ancient-future model of sustainable faith and sustainable living.

Mustard Seed Village (MSV) will be constructed on 40 acres on Camano Island in Washington State. The first phase of the village will consist of a common building with a central gathering space as well as classrooms and living quarters.

Plans also include a greenhouse, barn, and additional cottage-style housing. The village will be physically designed to both fit into its natural setting and reflect something of the spirit of a seventh century Celtic monastery.

There will be significant focus on sustainable design and stewardship of the land. An orchard and garden will provide a high level of food self-sufficiency for those who are part of this community.

A major component of the village will be the ability to provide students with a fully immersive, accredited academic semester “abroad”. The curriculum will integrate intellectual and spiritual challenges with the learning opportunities of a rural forest environment and an eco-village community.

Mustard Seed Village, Camano Island, WashingtonTogether, this community will seek to create a highly sustainable way of life with shared routines of nurture, harvest, processing and celebration.

At the core of this monastic learning community will be a deep commitment to God and a broad spectrum of Christian spiritual practices drawing particularly on the beauty and insights of the Celtic Christian tradition and other pre-modern Christian traditions.

Our intent is for this community not only to be rooted in a rich spirituality and a different rhythm of life, but also seek to embody something of the values of God’s new world that is already here. In this we hope that all who visit will experience a way of life that is both more sustainable and more cooperative and that cares for God’s good creation and extends God’s love to neighbors near and far.
