  • Description


    Hi, we're looking for interesting people to share a cultural exchange and experiences with us. You never know, we might both learn new skills! We are developing a low impact living community in the heart of town, with energy conservation, water conservation and growing our own food at its core. There are various tasks around the building and the grounds, from maintaining vegetable patches to reclaiming and upcycling old furniture. We like to share interesting cuisines too
