The location is in a residential neighborhood. It is a quiet area with beautiful views of the mountains in the distance. There is an organic garden, a big, lovely kitchen stocked with gourmet international food. We all take turns cooking and cleaning as part of living together.

There is a variety of projects at our homestead from helping with mechanical projects to terracing the hillside!
