    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Here you can learn a lot of high value skills depending on your interests and what is going on when you arrive.

    Motivation and a conscious approach to life is key to a rewarding experience here.

    You can learn about organic gardening, experimental eco-building, living in community, taking a DIY approach to creating a life you want to live, expanding creativity, property development and maintenance.

    You can learn different skills helping with our 2 festivals - a mix of music, arts, sustainability and community

    Recreational activities include: sculpture & art (materials and tools available), plenty of movies / documentaries on political and environmental subjects. A well known bike trail is close by for exploring surrounding landscapes. Good music, good out door sound system. Playing with a wild and happy child. Conversations about our world and tyhe positive changes we are trying to create. Beautiful spaces to relax, meditate, contemplate, create, etc.
