Preserving Culture and Engaging Community through Sustainability Education and Development

"The Rosebud Continuum is a dynamic, ever evolving nexus between the best practices of our many pasts and traditional wisdoms and the exciting synergies that are emerging as we apply our dedication to sustainability and education to the creation of a desirable future, with liberty and justice for all. At Rosebud we seek to demonstrate and inspire so that visitors and volunteers can contribute to the widening solution space that can realistically tackle our individual and environmental health and biodiversity conservation challenges. Rosebud is a place where ordinary folks and families can feel empowered to "try this at home" and serves as a resource for communities and neighborhoods and individual households seeking to wean themselves off of dysfunctional systems and instead learn "systems thinking" in the human food/energy/water nexus and wildlife preservation that resolve conflicts and lead to harmonious outcomes."

Dakota Prayer Ride and Water Walk

You can view the journey on Facebook:  


The Dakota Water Walk and Prayer Ride is an annual journey to honor the Dakota that fled the US Army in 1862 as well as the 38+2 who were hung in the largest mass trial in the country’s history.  Following the hanging, massacres, and internment of Dakota people, genocidal US policies have resulted in high rates of alcohol and drug use, depression, and suicide. 

Participants also walk and ride to help heal the area’s increasingly polluted waters and raise awareness about the epidemic of missing and murdered indigenous people. 

W.A.T.E.R  =  We All Take Environmental Responsibility

The walk was started in 2017 to help heal both multigenerational trauma and the waters that have been poisoned by oil leaks and other contaminants.  The Rosebud Continuum supports the Dakota Prayer Ride and Water Walk in honor of women and children from historical trauma - past & present.  Through this journey we embrace all lives lost.

This Man Has Lived Off the Grid For 20 Years-Here's How Last Updated on 2018-09-10 21:02:47   “We want to be that average American icon that says, ‘You can do this.’”                        Nat Geo explorer T.H. Culhane describes how solar panels help power his home. In the far corner of the front yard of a large house in Florida, an RV rests, shaded by trees as clothing on a nearby line sways in the breeze. In this RV, Nat Geo explorer Thomas Henry "T.H." Culhane lives with his wife, Enas Culhane, almost entirely off the grid. “We want to be that average American icon that says you can do this, but you may have to do it in stages,” he says. Culhane, a longtime National Geographic explorer, began living off the grid in the late ‘90s, when he snuck into the basement of his apartment building in Los Angeles and pulled the plug that delivered electricity.

The Rosebud Continuum Last Updated on 2018-09-10 21:01:35   Preserving what is truly the real Florida is becoming a serious challenge. The rampant overdevelopment of land and coastal areas without regard for native plants and ecosystems is forever altering the natural ecological balance of living systems which have thrived for millennia. The Rosebud Continuum is a new, continuous and evolving project to restore and preserve a relatively large land and lake area in Pasco County Florida. The project will also incorporate a number of new and vibrant additions to the landscape including bee colonies, bat and bird houses, alternative energy sources, sustainable agriculture including hydroponic production, aquaculture utilizing the natural, spring lake on the property, native plant demonstration gardens, and eventually, buildings constructed to very high energy efficiency/sustainable levels for lectures, classes, research and other...
