    Hello Volunteers!


    Update: We are looking forward to hosting more volunteers In October when we return from our summer travels!


    A little about us: We live on a 5-acre farm that serves as a gathering place for community events and workshops. We are dedicated to facilitating continual intellectual growth and encouraging conscientious, reflective, and sustainable living. We host educational lectures, workshops, solstice gatherings, and musical celebrations as the farm.

    We are located just outside of the beautiful coastal towns of San Luis Obispo and Arroyo Grande on the Central Coast of California. Our farm is halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, along the California coast. Our name comes from the Greek word for the place where lives come together, a sort of intersection of souls.

    We have a large "main house" that we use for hosting events and additional smaller dwellings where residents and guests stay.

    We currently have 25 chickens, 3 goats (including a milking goat), 2 dogs, a large garden and a vineyard. We are growing Grenache and Syrah grapes, and we make our own wine.

    We grow (some) of our own food in our large community garden, enjoy eggs and milk from our chickens and goats, and have a solar-powered property.

    We have a volunteer cabin that is set up for 1-2 volunteers, which has a bed and bathroom nearby.

    We have all of the necessary bedding and pillows, but you might want to bring additional blankets or jackets as it gets pretty chilly at night!

    We provide healthy food for all of your meals, but you will probably have to prepare your own meals most of the time. We are pretty laid-back and like to give people the opportunity to explore our beautiful area when they come.

    We typically plan about 4-6 hours of group work-time per day, and free time the rest of the time. We also offer educational demonstrations in goat cheese-making, beer-making, and coffee-roasting.

    We are surrounded by beautiful beaches, wineries, and hikes. If you have a car, this usually makes exploration a lot easier, though we have figured out arrangements for people without cars too.

    Please write us and tell us a little about yourself!

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    We have a bit of a hippie California vibe, and have cultivated many useful skills for living on a farm. We offer educational demonstrations in goat cheese-making, beer making, wine-making (though this is a long-term process, but we can offer pointers), bread-making, and coffee-roasting. We also make our own wine and care for our farm animals. If you are interested in learning more about chickens or goats, this is a great place!

    We have a stand-alone cabin meant to house volunteers. It is located at the bottom of our vineyard and contains one large bed and a nightstand and dresser. A bathroom with shower is located a short walk away.

    we are surrounded by beautiful hikes/ wineries/ breweries/ beaches.
    We are 5 minutes from the quaint town of Arroyo Grande, and 15 minutes from downtown San Luis Obispo (by car).

    There are an abundance of hiking opportunities in the area. For an easy but beautiful stroll we recommend the Bob Jones trail, a wide path that ends at Avila Beach.

    We now have a hot tub located at the property (!), but we also have a few natural hot springs nearby that are very fun to visit. One of our favorite activities is soaking in natural hot springs at Sycamore Springs resort, a 15-minute drive away.

    If you just want to hang out on the beach, we are 10-15 minutes away from the closest beach (by car). Many people enjoy surfing on our beaches.

    If you have a car, this usually makes exploration a lot easier, though we have figured out arrangements for people without cars too.
