  • Description

    Description

    We have a Farm to Table Educational program so that we can teach whole food cooking and bread baking classes to our local children and their families. We just received a grant for a community garden for that purpose.
    We host travelers from around the world in our vacation rentals. ( Super sweet happy hippies)

    We have hosted over 100 work away travels in the past 6 years. Our vision is inspired by the 4 Sacred Elements. Earth( garden) Fire(Culinary arts), Air (Solar power)and Water (Caribbean ocean), Our vision is so big that we must gather our tribe and work and live as one. spirit being the 5th sacred element.

    We have a yoga deck, 9 raised garden beds, 4 cottages and a professional outdoor kitchen with a view. We are over an Acer of land in a virgin valley on a small island, in the Virgin Islands.
    We would love to share our paradise with you. Super quiet and peaceful.
    The last ferry to our Water island is at 9 pm and the ferry cost $10 round trip

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are so humbled by the exchange,
    Our space is a temple and heals all those who come to stay,
    We heal each other.
    The small island vibe is super sweet and so safe. Our Caribbean neighbors are the nicest people you will meet, they have taught me so much in the 30 years. we have few boats and will take you out to see our beautiful island paradise

    We are in need of a veggie garden and to use up gallons of colorful paint. stone gardens ... we are building glass bottle walls and collecting rocks for stonework. driftwood gathering. Will be working with youth groups and taking care of our guest.

    IMPORTANT.
    We ask that you have travel insurance and do not to take a job while you are here.
    4-week min stay works best for us, will consider a shorter stay. We do not provide meals due to the high cost of living here in the Virgin Islands. We do share meals on our big work days and we often break bead with our beautification team.

    We really prefer couples older than 25 or friends traveling together, but will consider anyone with the right open-hearted vibe.
    We highly recommend you have travel insurance when you travel
