I'm looking for someone to share in an Adventure. — #001- the beginning
Updated: Aug 10, 2022
Actually, a lot of someones!
We are here at the beginning – well, beginning for you. For me, it's been a long journey already. This is the first in a long line of posts that will take us all on a journey many of us have had. Bringing the Shire to life in the real world. Being able to spend the day wandering the gardens or the week exploring the houses and hills around you. This place is ready for its moment to shine. But we need help with every piece of it, and I know you're up to the task!
We want to take you with us and be involved in every step. Asking questions, making comments, sharing this adventure with the world.
We are here at step one.
Launching the websites,
Brainstorming concepts (what we are going to do with this project)
Finding the right land
Raising the funding
Designing the layout and themes of each home
Exploring eco-living technology
Contracting the land developers
Building the hobbit holes
Bringing the local and Tolkien-loving artists together to fill it with character
Landscaping and gardening
Hosting workshops to construct outdoor fences, chairs, tables, etc.
Cultivating and caring for the Party Tree
Building the Green Dragon
Staffing it with the locals and fans
All while sharing every step of the journey with you online
Finally: The Grand Opening Celebration
Once we're open, the real fun begins...
Stay overnight or the whole weekend in your very own unique hobbit hole
Have your event or wedding under the Party Tree
Put your feet up by the fire and watch the sunset with a mug in hand.
Help tend the gardens and orchard.
Eat and drink like the Hobbit you are.
Take part in special events like Arbor Day, Earth Day, and other seasonal celebrations.
Explore the grounds and surrounding areas, and find a thing or two on our nerdy scavenger hunt
Play with and help care for the resident animals
Swim or fish in the lake

Consider becoming a Patron and get in on the special giveaways and official invitations. Memberships at $3, $10, $25, $100.
Ask questions, start conversations, and please don't be shy about sharing this with those you know will want to know that we are building Hobbiton.
Your excitement will be the key to this becoming real!
This will be a family-friendly destination, safe from the crowded floors of hotels, and much more affordable than taking a trip to the movie set tour.
Our goal is to make it more real than the movie set because, well, it will be!
Real time to spend in the gardens,
Real memories you give and receive,
Real homes to spend the precious night's sleep in.
If every Tolkien Fan Gave $10 towards this project,
we could fund, build, and staff it in record time.
What will you do to bring it to life?
