  • Description

    Description

    Our EcoVillage is part of a global movement of people seeking to create positive solutions to our community's social, environmental and economic challenges. Our mission is to promote experiential learning about meeting human needs for shelter, food, energy, livelihood and social connectedness that are aligned with the long-term health and viability of Earth and all its inhabitants. We promote personal financial freedom and the collaborative economy by questioning and experimenting with societal norms regarding architecture, transportation, nutrition, energy, education, and art.     

    We are looking for volunteers to help with workshops, retreats, building tiny homes, handicraft industries, educational programming, hostel, job skills training, moringa powder project, wellness camps, yoga fests/camp outs…

    painting, murals, building repair, permaculture landscaping, farm & gardening, cooking, chicken maintenance...etc..

    We are also very open to your skills and interests. Basically we are interested in learning from you and look forward to you sharing yours skills.
