Is it possible to live off the land, fully self-sufficient in today's age. If it is possible how can you do it? What are the environmental consequences and challenges to living self-sufficiently?
Here to discuss this very question and to engage in discussion on the question of self-sufficiency, sustainability, and intentional community is the General Manager of Burning Man's Fly Ranch, Matthew Sundquist.

A year-round opportunity to explore the potential of the Burning Man community.
In 2016, Burning Man Project acquired Fly Ranch. The 3,800 acre parcel in northern Nevada is home to dozens of hot and cold pools, three geysers, wetlands, a playa, an old farmhouse, dozens of animal species, and more than 100 identified types of plants.
In the long term, the possibilities are vast. Fly Ranch will be able to expand Burning Man Project’s activities and amplify Burning Man’s cultural impact in a wider world beyond Black Rock City. It can serve as an incubator for the Burning Man community to take ideas from our temporary city and give them a real-world testing ground. It can become a place to experiment with shelter, energy, water, environmentalism, new models of living, working and governance.
If you’d like to learn about what we’re up to, check out the Fly Ranch Roadmap. We’ve spent this year researching the land, and have found and mapped several hundred artifacts, including old farm equipment, mining cores, and an airplane. We’ve identified several families of horses, two state permitted dams, and several invasive plant species.
