The Alderleaf property is a small-scale ecovillage nestled in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. It is located above the Skykomish River valley near the town of Monroe, Washington, 30 miles northeast of Seattle. Our 15 acre property is an evolving model of environmental sustainability. Alderleaf Wilderness College has its office and classrooms on site.
The large forested portion of the land contains giant mossy cedars, a cascading creek, a diversity of wildlife, and several wetlands. It is adjacent to thousands of acres of forest lands with many lakes, streams, and mountains to explore.
The farm includes cabins, houses, a large barn, beautiful pastures, garden space, fruit trees and an integrated permaculture design plan.
Housing is available to students in our Wilderness Certification Program as well as others interested in being involved with the Alderleaf community. Residents share a passion for nature, sustainability and community, and often enjoy the opportunity to grow organic food and steward the land.
