We are trying to live sustainably through applying permaculture principles, organic farming, grey water and waste recycling, composting toilets, bicycle powered machines, natural building techniques and generating our own electricity.
We've already planted over 3000 trees and are eating the majority of our own vegetables from the garden and greenhouse.
Volunteers work 5 hours per day. In your free time there are many interesting places to visit nearby.
For accommodation we have a converted truck, a yurt, earthbag houses and 3 tipis. We provide sheets and blankets. There is also enough space to camp for those who have their own tent and prefer privacy.
We do yoga, meditation and sweat lodges at various times during the month and we regularly host shamanic ceremonies.
Our community is vegetarian/vegan. Everyone takes turns in cooking and washing up, and all meals are eaten together. Please bring your own snacks as we provide 3 meals per day but not snacks.
We hope to be a place of healing where people can live and work together, in harmony with the environment, and also have the space and time to develop their own skills, dreams, and desires.
