  • Beschreibung


    We're a small community of people, on a beautiful piece of land in rural Texas, full of lush green hills, towering pines, oak savannahs, and wild animals, about 1 hour's drive from Austin (2h from San Antonio, 3h from the beach). 8 people live here now, from ages 3 to 73, and we're always trying to get more people involved.

    We've traveled the world volunteering with Workaway, hitchhiking and sleeping on floors with Couchsurfing, playing music in bands, farming, building, protesting, yogaing, truck-driving, teaching... all kinds of things. Now, we're trying to restore this piece of land to a more balanced state and to build a home, a farm, an apiary, a studio... We want this to be a communal place that fosters creativity, closeness to nature, silence, loudness, peace, chaos, etc.!

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    There are 3 major cities within driving distance (Austin, Houston, San Antonio) and tons of natural beauty (Pedernales, Port Aransas, the Colorado River, etc.). We go to the city once or twice a week... if you want to go more often, you'll need a vehicle, since there's no public transit. Feel free to ask any questions, we can talk about your expectations/hopes/dreams~ But of course, the big draw here is the natural beauty, serenity, and community building.

    As far as the people here, we've lived our lives based on sharing and cultural exchange and (hopefully!) have something to offer in return :) Maybe you'd like to practice Armenian or Spanish or Arabic, learn how to tour in a band or build furniture or drive a semi, play the drums or the flute or make beats, talk about Mishima or Goethe or Wong Kar Wai, hear about immigrating from Lebanon in the 1970s, walk through some beautiful rolling hills and come up with ways to make "permaculture" something more than a buzz word, build a compost toilet or a guitar amp... we try to approach all these things in a humble, open way.

  • Arbeit


    We ask helpers to help from 8 AM to 1 PM, 5 days per week. We can discuss different help times with you, but we have to start early on hot days. The main requirement is clear communication and sticking to plans.

    Work includes construction (from concrete to wood framing to tiling floors), gardening, running our apiary (beehives), forestry, etc. It's often hard work in hot, humid weather. But the place is beautiful, and you will see the work of your hands manifest in front of your eyes, a great feeling. Maybe you'll build something here too someday!

    Our wifi is consistent, but not very fast... we have had people here who teach via livestream or conference, and it's usually adequate. Also, the only reliable phone service here is AT&T.
