Our Story 

For more and more people, the mainstream lifestyle sold to us growing up is not a viable path to a happy life. The stress & anxiety that many people carry is not leading us to the lives filled with joy and purpose.

Music & art events are a great way to escape life’s challenges. It’s also fun and a really good idea to incorporate workshops, yoga, and meditation to assist our transformation.

Transformational festivals have been around for decades, and we feel CoLab Campout is a collaborative experience, offering culture a new level of transformation.

CoLab Campout is a curated experience designed to evoke hope for our future. CoLab Campout is an intimate gathering designed to keep our participants on a journey of growth together. The waste of resources and the unsustainable ecological impact of large events do not foster long term regeneration. It is also clear that people do not fully understand the economics behind festivals, and we’d like to OpenSource all of what we are doing so we can truly invite full transparent collaboration. We also love to have a great time, but many days of late night music and non-productive and unconnected activity is not in alignment with what we perceive to be a transformational event.

The Vision of CoLab Campout is what we desire the attraction to be. Learning, meeting, and connecting with activated action oriented community is what we envision the draw to be. In future years, this will be a 200 person SOLD OUT event upon just a few weeks of ticket releases.

Yes, CoLab Campout will also have great entertainment…that’s a given. You’ll probably be blown away, but we want you to come because this collaborative village building work is vital to creating possibilities of human thrival way beyond existence in chaos.

CoLab Campout is designed to showcase what offgrid life can offer. Check out Heartland to see our home base location. We are deep in the prototype phase of creating a reality where living & working from concrete boxes and being in front of our computers for 8+ hours a day is not the only option.

The main goals are to get back to our roots of village building, to collaboratively build real structures and to explore ourselves and each other as we work together. The result we are shooting for is a feeling of actual Transformation. It is our transformation that we LOVE to celebrate. This is why the 4 pillars of CoLab Campout are OuterWork, InnerWork, Transformation, and Celebration. 

CoLab Campout is a festival model that we envision bringing to intentional communities all over the world. We’ve launched this model at Heartland, and your purchase of a ticket is your vote to help us make this a reality.

CoLab Campout is not fueled by any outside investor. If we don’t meet our most basic expenses we cancel the event. If we break even, the artists get paid more and we begin to invest more into our event so it becomes even better for those that come.

This makes YOU the investor.

Having an event is not easy work, and everyone collaborating to make this happen are deep in service to this vision. We make tickets cheaper early to help motivate sales. It’s also good for you to know that last minute ticket purchase is not helping us make this experience better for you.

If this is exciting for you, we are calling for your support now. Grab a ticket, and invite your friends so you can carpool to get here.

We hope you can join us!

2017 Farmers Guild-Raising - Feb 18 2017

Every February, hundreds of California farmers, ranchers and local food advocates from San Diego to the North Coast converge at Sonoma County’s Shone Farm to share skills, explore hot topics in sustainable agriculture and collectively forge a united voice on behalf of family farms. This year's workshops and activities will explore CSA's in the age of produce box schemes, food safety rules, soil health and much more. As part of this year's “Intergenerational Exchange” theme, we’re excited to officially announce a merger between Community Alliance with Family Farmers (CAFF) and the Farmers Guild. This new partnership unites generations; combines wisdom and enthusiasm; infuses lessoned learned with what’s possible for the future of food and ag in California. ? And like every year, this event concludes with the always popular Agrarian Lovers Ball. With Valentine’s Day in the air, we open up the doors to our broader community with locally-sourced food and live music to celebrate farmers and all those who love them. The night culminates with our Annual Awards, recognizing contributions to a stronger local economy, food justice and a new generation of agrarians.
