EHS Refuge in Australia: People Needed

Kim Goldberg's post on Refugium

"Bruce Evans is man on a mission. And he is looking for other people with Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity to join him in creating an EHS refuge in southeast Australia, on land outside of Wangaratta, Victoria in the King Valley.

"The land is available for occupancy right now for anyone who can come with a van, tent or caravan. Those who arrive first may be able to have one of the bedrooms in Bruce's cottage.

"People who want to visit the land for a temporary "holiday" from wireless radiation are welcome. But Bruce is also looking for electrosensitive people who want to stay long-term, build their own cottages on his family's land, participate in the farm and help create a community safe from electropollution. . . .

A rural area outside Snowflake, Arizona has become a haven for people with severe MCS and electrical sensitivity. Over 35 people with environmental illness live in specially built or modified homes on large lots. Thirteen homes are built adjacent to each other, while the rest are scattered over a larger area.


"All of the EIs in the community moved there from somewhere else. Most came from other states. The common reasons to move to Snowflake are:

  • low air pollution
  • low mold
  • moderate pollen season
  • low humidity 
  • low electropollution 
  • moderate four-season climate 
  • large lots are affordable
  • availability of experienced builders 
  • occasional availability of housing
  • established MCS/EHS community 
There are drawbacks also, such as:
  • no MCS/EI doctors
  • some people miss green landscapes
  • high elevation (thin air) 
  • occasional smoke from forest fires 
  • few specialty stores
  • conservative politics 

"However, no place is perfect, and no place is for everyone. Some people used to big cities initially wrinkle their noses, but often grow to like the place. Almost all of us used to live in large cities.

"The zoning in most areas requires a minimum of 20 acres (8 hectares) for each home, ensuring that the area stays rural. Land is inexpensive, making such large lots economical.

"Most of the MCS/EHS homes are connected to the electrical grid, while a few are fully powered by the sun for ultra-low EMF living. . . .

Greenbank, West Virginia

Wi-fi refugees shelter in West Virginia mountains

" . . . Living here allows me to be more of a normal person. I can be outdoors. I don't have to stay hidden in a Faraday Cage," she says.

"I can see the sunrise, I can see the stars at night, and I can be in the rain.

"Here in Green Bank allows me to be with people. People here do not carry cell phones so I can socialise.

"I can go to church, I can attend some celebrations, I can be with people. I couldn't do that when I had to remain in the Faraday Cage." . . .

Cedar Rock is a 320-acre property located 50 km east of Osoyoos, BC, on Hwy 3. This sanctuary has not yet been built. It is in the planning stage, and the vision is quite large and impressive. See website for details. Cedar Rock is intended to be a "regenerative community" primarily for people with MCS (Multiple Chemical Sensitivity). But it will also meet the needs of EHS people. There will be no wireless technology permitted anywhere on the acreage.

Swiss apartment village constructed for hypersensitives

No perfume, mobile phones or Wi-Fi allowed

"Zurich housing officials grant land for chemical-free living . . .

"Avoiding the environmental burdens is really the only thing that helps most of these patients," said John van Limburg Stirum, an internist who specializes in environmental medicine. Stirum had previously treated Schifferle and others who suffer from MCS. "They have to find shelter somewhere where there are no antennas, no radiation from cell phones, which is getting more and more difficult."

"But in the new complex, this radiation is not an issue, because the building was reinforced with an internal protective barrier that blocks out all incoming transmissions from nearby communication towers. Schifferle says the benefits of this are life-changing, and the proof, he says, is in the readings.

"This room is very good, because we have almost no electricity," he gleefully told reporters, pointing to a 0.0 reading on his handheld measuring device. . . .

Rose Hill Off-Grid Farm

For those needing an EHS safe "escape."


N.B. Currently Rose Hill Farm is not open to the public.  

Rose Hill Off-Grid Farm is a year-round natural retreat surrounded by river, lakes and mountain wilderness.  With miles of forest trails, this retreat is a unique destination for nature walks, photography, biking, motor cycling, off-road terrain adventures, hiking, fishing, cross country skiing, or simply sitting on the balcony appreciating the silence.

This 162-acre property is located in Horsefly in the Cariboo region of British Columbia. The nearest major town is Williams Lake - about an hour's drive away.  The land consists of hilly terrain with varying flora ranging from aspen and pine trees to rose hips.  It is rife with wildlife. Grouse, rabbits, coyotes, squirrels and chipmunks are in evidence. Deer and moose may be encountered on the property.

Situated in the middle of provincial crown land, which is leased for logging, Rose Hill is surrounded by forest with no human neighbors bordering the property. Access to Rose Hill is by a forest service road off the main road.

Owing to the terrain, the property has several sites that offer complete privacy from the main residence yet are within easy walking distance.

A self-contained rustic-style residence with its own private entrance is connected to the main building.  This lodging, with open kitchen and Great Room, is equipped on the main floor with eating and lounging area, parlour, fireplace, full bathroom and large BBQ deck.  It has two full bedrooms upstairs with sleeping accommodations for as many as seven persons.

A comfy, separate two-bedroom cabin capable of sleeping four, is also available.  It has no electrical appliances, but it has a wood stove and a BBQ cook top available. It is lit with candles and solar lamps.

There is no electrical utility service anywhere on the property; however Rose Hill does not lack modern conveniences. All electricity is generated by a solar panel charging system with a gasoline-powered electrical generator for backup. Water is supplied by a shallow well with a smaller deep well for backup.

As Rose Hill is used as an off-grid demonstration centre, there will be visitors and guests to the property from time to time.

Due to the remoteness of this retreat, there are no cell phone towers, Wi-Fi routers, or EMR from Smart Meters.  Telecommunications and Internet are accessed via satellite service only, with the dish on a pole mounted away from the house to maintain safety for EHS persons.

Limited tenting and RV parking are available in summer months.

Feel free to share this information with others looking for an EHS safe retreat or holiday experience, or anyone interested in learning how to live off-grid.

Questionnaire - Environmental Health Association of Quebec

Would you like to buy your own home in a healthy community? - Housing Project News

Great news! On land next to our affordable housing project, which will be built on 25 acres, there is the possibility to buy or rent homes built specifically for people suffering from Environmental Sensitivities (Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, Mould Sensitivity, Electromagnetic Sensitivity). This project could be on another 25 acres of land. Approximately 50 acres of land, will be used for these two projects. This land will be free of triggers that cause sensitivities. You could own your own home or rent a place to live. Imagine the freedom to live without being exposed to things that make you sick. For more information or to fill the questionnaire . . . 

Please return the questionnaire by November 30, 2012.

Do you suffer from Multiple Chemical and Mould Sensitivity, Electromagnetic Sensitivity or overlapping chronic conditions such as Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue? Are you looking to buy a house in a healthy area: no pesticides, chemicals, cell towers, WiFi, traffic pollution, wood smoke?

Surrounded by forest and fresh air, situated in the heart of the Laurentian Mountains, on 25 acres of land a housing development is being planned for homes built to specifications that would suit people with these chronic conditions. It has been established that living in a healthy home in a pristine area is the significant factor in recovery from these health conditions . . .

Creation of the first EHS Refuge Zone in Italy

within the Vena del Gesso Regional Park

"This project, unique in Italy and among the first in Europe, was started thanks to a private initiative, but the authorities of the Parc of Emilia Romagna in the urban district of Brisighella have made a major contribution to its creation and to publicising its existence. They plan a further extension in the future of the boundaries of this zone with low electromagnetic radiation.

"Open since May 2010, everything in the Zone is free, including a Bed & Breakfast called "The Wolf's Hideaway" (Eremo del Lupo), the first in Italy for the EHS. The building was restored and shielded with anti-EMF insulation, particularly the bedrooms, and it has space for five EHS guests.

"This electrosmog-free B&B is 2.5km from the station of Brisighella (Faenza-Florence line, not electrified) and is in the middle of an unspoilt landscape, just next to the Refuge Zone . . .

Free Wi-Fi axed for West Van park

Surfing the Internet while relaxing at the beach isn't appealing to West Vancouver council.

This Council has been doing their homework . . .

"They axed the installation of free public Wi-Fi at John Lawson Park at a recent council meeting, saying it would ruin the calm beach setting.

"It's such a marvelous place; you reflect as quiet. It's serene, people can sit," said Coun. Bill Soprovich, who opposed the idea. Coun. Trish Panz agreed, saying she hopes Wi-Fi won't be proposed for all West Vancouver parks.

"The plan for free Wi-Fi was the only part of an Ambleside waterfront enhancement plan to be rejected by council . . .
