    Hello Friend!

    Please read our entire profile and follow instructions on what your first message should contain. It shows us that you read our profile, can follow instructions and it saves us time asking the normal questions then waiting for your response.
    :-) Thank you so much :-)

    ABOUT US:

    We are a small family committed to sustainable, reflective living. We are in the process of growing our own food and teaching others in our community to do the same. I have a modest home on about a half acres of land in Georgia, just outside of the beautiful city of Atlanta, where I have indoor and outdoor projects that I could use your help with. From Carpentry/Framing to Gardening and General Home Maintainance, I've got plenty of fun for you!

    I consider myself a kind and gentle laid back person who likes helping others. I love to travel and meet new people. I'm a yoga teacher, nature lover, and vegan enthusiasts. I'm passionate about the world's cultures and when I'm not traveling I enjoy cooking, gardening, and connecting with like-minded individuals.

    We have the main house where we all congregate for meals. We also have another studio apartment, that could accommodate family volunteer groups.

    What are we looking for?
    We have three categories you could volunteer in:
    A) Outdoor tasks - Gardening, composting, carpentry, cutting wood, building community
    gardens, help with tiny dome/home projects, and basic upkeep of the property.
    B) Indoor tasks - DIY building projects, Plastering/mortaring walls, general home maintenance,
    food prep, cleaning, organizing, recycling, downsizing, & basic home repairs. We live in a modest,
    rustic yet peaceful home, but it needs regular upkeep.
    C) Tasks best suited for your skill set and talents - Lend your talents to any one of our
    community projects. We host volunteer opportunities for the community garden, free
    yoga classes, and other workshops. Any help organizing this would be appreciated.


    IN YOUR FIRST MESSAGE TO US PLEASE:
    1) Send us your email address so that we can send you our online application.
    2) Pick an area you'd like to work in or learn A, B or C or a combination of them. The more the better.
    3) Briefly list if you have experience in the area. You can give more details in the application.
    4) Lastly, please include the rough dates you would be interested in volunteering for.

    We plan to have around 4-5 hours of group help-time per day, and free time the rest of the time. Our area has many hikes, parks a beach, and great food! Very open-minded fun-loving people. Meet us if you can. We might not get to hang with you most of the time as we run several home-based businesses but we are happy to show you around our beautiful city when we can.

    If you are interested in joining us for a week or more, please reach out to us. We look forward to growing and learning with you.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travelers interested in sustainable living will gain knowledge and experience in gardening and holistic living. During your off time, take a short drive to explore downtown Decatur or Atlanta's shops, restaurants and Universities; Morehouse, Spellman and Clark Atlanta University as well as Georgia Tech and Georgia state to name a few. Or visit the beautiful museums and sample the delicious restaurants which also hosts a farmers market every Sunday. We are perfectly positioned for public transportation. We are 5 minutes from organic grocery stores and juice bars, Stone Mountain for hiking, and many parks and museums for exploring. I look forward to sharing and learning from one another.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    The lodging we provide is in our garden apartment. It has its own entry door separate from the main house. Accommodations are quite rustic but the space comes with Its own private bath, mini-fridge, microwave and two comfortable futon beds. If there are more than two guests we can add an air mattress if needed. The space has not been used for a while, so it needs a little bit of cleaning to make it comfortable again. I think in one day it should be done.

    We eat very healthy vegetarian-friendly meals and will offer 2-3 meals daily or provide ingredients to cook. If you require more than that there are many many great restaurants nearby.
