    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    By saying we are a "community", we do not mean a loose association of individuals in a common geographical location, but rather a large extended family of married couples, single people, and children sharing a common social, spiritual, and economical goal. That goal is to create a life of care and growth for the common good. We live a life dedicated to sustainable practices, primarily of our relationships with one another. For this to be a daily reality, we eat all our meals together, gather morning and evening, with weekend celebrations, sing, dance, and offer a community prayer to the One who makes this life possible. We also teach about our spiritual way of life based on the original teachings of Yahshua the Messiah. We ask that volunteers would attend all gatherings and meals, with a desire to respect and learn from our way of life together.

    Living arrangements will be according to space and needs.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We would be glad to pick you up at the Airport or Train or Bus Station and bring you back on your way out, as it is only about 15 min from our farm.
    We don't work on Saturday, but just have a good time together, maybe playing volleyball or swimming in the pool or going for walks. You are more than welcome to stay with us that day, but if you would like to take that day off and go somewhere else that is fine as well.
