Guidelines

Boulder Gardens Sanctuary is a community of artists, volunteers, 

and friends who help Garth with the many choirs and projects need to keep Boulder Gardens sustainable. 

We are a 501c3 entity and a Limited Liability Company.

We ask from daily visitors a suggested donation of 5 dollars per car which goes to help pay for land taxes and portapotties. Please put your donation in the jar at the top or at the property gate upon leaving.

We also have accommodations and camping through Hipcamp.com

Our underlying principles are co-creating and cooperating with humanity and all living creatures in nature. Our actions and our compassions work in tandem to balance everyday chaos. Every day we reflect mentally and rejuvenate physically. Volunteers work hard behind the scenes to ensure that Boulder Gardens is safe for all that come.

Self-care and moderation while at Boulder Gardens means eating healthy and get hydrated before you arrive in this harsh desert environment. Take care of your body, know your limits, and keep an eye on your friend's health too. There are no medical facilities in the middle of the desert so be prepared.
