Area: 15 minutes away from a town of 12,000 with 2 colleges that has all the necessities. 35 minutes from the very hip Columbia, MO with an active music scene and all of the other things that go along with a larger college town. St. Louis is an hour and a half away.Apply for 2015 I'm in my 6th year of building a sustainable bed & breakfast, education center, and retreat in rural central Missouri from the ground up. The goal is to create an environment for people to remove themselves from the often chaotic and unhealthy cacophony of modern society and to reconnect with nature while also exploring ways of living simpler, healthier, and generally more conscientious and fulfilling lives. I've dedicated myself to learning, living, and sharing the principles of sustainability and self-sufficiency. I will eventually hold different types of organized group activities such as meditation or organization retreats, training courses, skill-shares, potlucks and other social gatherings. I am not an expert on most of what I am attempting, but I am rapidly accumulating knowledge and experience of what works here since I arrived in 2009 and I gladly share it with anyone who is interested. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2014 Volunteers I am looking for help on a number of different sustainability-related projects for 2014. I'd prefer volunteers to stay at least 1 month, though I'm willing to consider stays as short as 2 weeks.
