Working for  Provo and Springville, Utah  we are launching a grass roots movement to create


  • A new generation of food and energy producing homes & neighborhoods - starting with  neighborhood education centers, called Simple Living Centers.
  • A local low cost or no cost- barter approach to health education and local organic food production- promoting new careers in living foods for health, with organic methods of  food production. (CSA's)
  • A movement for starting  Habitat for Health -with plans to be an international organization networking local Simple Living Centers and working as a sister organization with Habitat of Humanity. Plans are to build local  Simple Living Centers -and support  town wide non profit fundraising campaigns for local food production and local food security- a growing concern in todays unstable economic world. 
  • As part of developing local food based economies plans are for  neighborhood councils to be trained to managed micro-loans to help those in need.

Alta Vista Education Centers : 1997 - 2019: David Cassani - founder


 In 1989 came a vision of two buildings  joined together,,,, a large eastern building joined a smaller western . Years later, we found such a site and  in 1997 we did extensive remodeling - major  foundation work - joining this eastern and western space and adding   a second and third level. This is were we started a  building that we had no idea would become a symbol  for a new higher - simple way of life so many are seeking for. We hope to open the door to a brighter light, a light parents and children can easily recognize,  a way to  stop running into the walls of life, and simply find another brighter, higher, simple way to live, receive and education , and how all we need can come to us. 


Leaders learn how a small group of people can over 3-10 years tip the consciousness of  communities to supporting a new way of life.
