“I think Taylor Camp is a place in your mind, anywhere where you can find true communion with other people, anywhere where you can enjoy the subtleties and the spiritual qualities of the trees and the natural world, you have found Taylor Camp.” — Meg Mitchell

 

 
“When we first moved to Taylor Camp we put up a tent on the beach. Then David Pearson started leaving nasty notes every morning telling us to go away (he laughs). They had rules about transients camping on the beach—we were only supposed to stay a week. But, you know, we stayed because Tony, my friend, left for a while and he gave us his house. In a way you had to be accepted, you had to know somebody—you inherited a place, there was no buying or selling, so there was this legacy. It wasn’t a free-for-all type of place. A lot of people came through and wanted to build something and stay but they couldn’t. There was sort of a council and general rules to keep peace and order. When Tony came back we were allowed to build an addition next to Sailor’s house. So, everybody had to be approved by the elders (laughing). I was in my early 20s, and everybody has a strong link to that time in your life. Woodstock and the Vietnam war, it was a rebellion against the establishment of our parents. We were going back to nature, going back to basics, going back. So, Taylor Camp was perfect, the perfect place to be at that age in that time.” — Paolo Baricchi
