gayleandluciaKnowing nothing about land stewardship, construction, handyman skills, or gardening, I bought this unimproved property and this at no easy task. I saw the finished product when I bought the land and now I’m learning how to fulfill that vision, which includes:

  • a bird sanctuary, particularly Cardinals and Red Head Woodpeckers
  • grow food forests for free consumption
  • house an international retreat center expressing true Texan hospitality
  • have places for tent and small RV camping
  • area clients mingle with clients from all around the world
  • treatments range in hours, half-days and overnights
  • clients and friends relax and enjoy themselves here
  • Massage Hideaway’s Massage Therapy becomes internationally acclaimed
  • tourists specifically come to Lockhart, TX for Massage Hideaway’s Massage Therapy

I aspire to make the Rural Jewel a living example of Permaculture Principles and Ethics for future generations to enjoy.
