  • Description


    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 :-)


    You can call me Mama Shakti, I am a 50+ year old Micro Farmer, and Wellness Coach in Stone Mountain Georgia. I enjoy teaching and mentoring young people. I have a modest home on about a half-acre of land, 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 Mentor, a Life long learner, and a 30 year Vegan. I'm passionate about the world's cultures and when I'm not traveling I enjoy cooking, gardening, and connecting with like-minded individuals.

    Your accommodations:
    There is a main house but there is a shared community space downstairs in our basement apartment. It is not luxurious but there is a shared full bathroom, mini-fridge, microwave, and a couple of comfy futons that sleep pretty well, with a picnic table outside where we usually have our meals. All meals are plant-based and nutritious.

    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 skillset 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.

    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) Lastly, please include the dates you would be interested in volunteering for.

    We plan to have around 5 hours of work per day, and free time the rest of the day. 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.

    There are no extended stays. However, if you are interested in joining us for a couple of weeks, please reach out to us. We'd love to have you! I look forward to growing and learning with you.

    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


    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.


    Live-in caretakers who have their own
    Tiny Home, Trailer, or Mobile Dwelling.

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