We're staying in Merced CA. - In a NEW project HOUSE!- we drive to the farm, Close to Yosemite
Let's have fun creating! GROWING, BAKING, landscaping, painting, writing, sharing stories and world travels, life tips, conservationism, environmentalism, ecology, our gifts and making lots of great food!
Have you ever experienced "LICKING YOUR PLATE" in profound gratitude
for the food, for the cook and for life? We live there.
Stopped killing the planet?
stopped killing men and animals?
stopped killing yourself? (life style and substances)
Live this then let's enJOY, in joy:
The 25+ trees to water, compost tossing, chicken raising, 3 cats to cuddle, murals to paint. Food to process!
LOTS of good FOOD TO EAT!!!!
INNER AND OUTER WORLD PEACE TO PRACTICE!
Sew the seeds of love, here and now and continue
to as you move around in life!
"Your work is to discover your work and then, with all your heart, to give yourself to it."
"If you have come to help me, you are wasting your time. But, if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together."
-- Lilla Watson
Life is about good friends and good food.
Now, between meals and smiles, what do we do?
We have experienced the magic thru living the following principles:
When lived, they become a fine culture. A GREAT place
to WAKE UP!! THRIVE and LIVE!!!!!
I'll write a few:
1. The Golden Rule:
do to/for others what you would want done for you
2. We are all EQUAL
3. We always look for opportunities to give and to serve others:
Make another's bed, make a Sister a sandwich, rub the feet of a sore person, start the Winter fire early before anybody else wakes up, make tea for friends, serve hand-squeezed juice to hot helpers outside...
ENDLESS options! We start in a nice, simple home and then move onto
the garden area in the early morning.
4. We love and treat respectfully ~Pachamama
The living organism, the mother of our bodies-Earth!
5. Our activities are LIFE-AFFIRMING!
We don't kill peaceful animals and eat them cuz they are yummy.
They love life and will avoid you trying to kill them.
We plant and cultivate life and LIVE.
We take care of our bodies, with good food, air, well water,
positivism and earth WORK...
We do not support the killing of other human beings. We are Peace-Nics
6. We are always respectful in all speech/dialog,
please refrain from dirty joke talk,
practice non-cussing control too (I'm not saying there isn't some cussin')
7. We carefully watch and enjoy nature: sun, moon, stars, dirt, water, fire, life!
8. Bear in mind three little questions at all times:
a. Is it good for ME?
b. Is it good for Everybody?
c. Is it good for the Earth?
...if you follow these three simple ideas, you will experience deep satisfaction
It works very well for everyone! We'll continue to do our best
A few NEW DIRECTIONS now too:
How about being a Planetary Pie Purveyor!!!
We will be giving away FREE FRUIT PIES, lovingly and sustainably prepared.
Baked to perfection in a solar oven and then given freely to those
that would come and receive. It is our dream that some
who would come for the pie, will stay for the experience, sharing their talents, creativity and pie-making skills.
Please bring your favorite pie recipe - we're collecting the world's finest! And, feel free to bring a bag of organic flour or a pie pan (glass preferred, better with solar ovens) with you - start the perpetual pie process - here, now.
We practice the principles of: land loving-composting, food raising, food awareness, organics,
environmentalism, SHARING, sustainability, little to no money used, idea sharing,
contributionism-resource sharing, fruit cores have seeds-seeds grow more trees, happy-hen eggs
exchange, hen poopies for the compost... newly creative innovative recipes, next level!
A new model of GIFTING and naturally receiving!
It's a WIN, WIN, WIN!
This is a vegetarian co-op. MICRO farm. We are learning!
Our new focus, after friendship and good food is:
A VW Camper BUS complete renovation! *when farm work is done.
Now we want to do one more this year with YOU!
We can do this in the garage at home or go to the garden area.
We will tear it completely apart, repair and repaint
and rebuild like new, everything! Engines, seats, brakes, bodies,
wood cabinetry... we love sharing knowledge and skills.
It has just begun!
What we do here and will continue is:
organic gardening, in protective boxes- DARN deer!!!
Early stages of permaculture. Fruit trees!!!!
We care for 15 egg-laying hens that roam here all day.
CALM DOGS ONLY may be OK to bring. They cannot chase the hens nor cats.
Dogs need a sleep spot, not roaming all night, nor chill on furniture.
Do you have a bed pad for them to chill and sleep? We have people in the house who do not want to ever be disturbed by animals in their living space. Do you bring a way to house them at night?
We have three wonderful tame barn cats, adding yours probably will not work well.
We love ARTist's WORKs of all kinds, come paint a mural!
Come practice English /Spanish (we are bi-lingual here), no problem.
We love to dance, do yoga (when we have traveling yogis to guide), Qi Gong, HIKE YOSEMITE (when open),
make music and move!
We are very happy here. Bring big ONLY BIG smiley hearts please. Come prosper and heal thru sincere, kind relations with all.
We love all peaceful traditions. Our LIVING ROOM is the Zen zone,
please only whisper and we love 100% silent dinners,
allowing us to SLOW DOWN, chew, taste, appreciate.
We are givers here and love to have givers come.
No room for selfishness, let's serve each other.
Many or us are struggling in the new current restrictive reality.
Donating for fresh food to add to all our
other good food stuff is helpful, not mandatory.
We make it happen as a family/group.
Willing heart-felt donations of fresh food is great!
Each Saturday we hit a grocery store.
Bring good coffee if you are a coffee drinker
AND PEANUT BUTTER IF YOU ARE A pb JUNKIE
We are writing a group book on traveling for nearly FREE,
and need help in all aspects
from illustration to writing to organizing raw notes.
We DO NOT use tobacco nor alcohol here. We do believe in medicinal herb, when over 21 years old. BYO. OCASSIONAL evenings way after work is OK.
No tripping here. Go to Yosemite for that if you must.
We respect life, our own,
all beings and animals! Please do not sneak alcohol in here and
create a little side-sipping gang. (we do not ever know who felt safe
coming here because of an alcohol problem and their need to not be near alcohol.
We can't have it here on the sly, and then they fall- not here) This has happened, we learned and evolved.
COFFEE/TEA BREAKFAST ALL START PROMPTLY AT 8:AM.
9:30 OUT THE DOOR!!!
1. Have fun
2. Do things good for the ALL- SHAAAAAAAAAAARE!!!!!
3. Build some vintage vw cars, many small farm tasks and house clean-up, and friendships
We love the philosophy of Ruiz- The Four Agreements
and the co-op's favorite book is "Peace Pilgrim".
Check her out on Youtube.
Jesus is a rock star
and we don't vote in fake elections
nor encourage voting for bad people,
nor go to war to fight for peace and love.
NOR LIVE IN FEAR of anything!
No c19 fear here. wisdom
NO FEAR, just love.
We love finding and growing with new tribe members.
WE BELIEVE IN SHARING ALL OF OUR TIME, TALENTS
AND RESOURCES IN THE WORLD.
We give hugs. Touch is REAL, think about it.
We go to the outdoor market every Saturday and get
hundreds of kilos of FREE fruits and veggies. We feed ourselves
with this, and the chickens, and make compost.
We live life very connected
to nature, in peace, harmony, and in love with Pachamama!
We believe in living with NO debt.
We cook with a solar oven outside all Summer.
The Sun is the great source of energy!
Never use electricity when there is another way:
heating water, solar oven, woodstove, daylight,
sunlight drying heat... (we offer both)
Just email and get ready to come if you know how to SHARE and are seriously fun, and dedicated to making today better than yesterday everyday, and doing always what is good for ALL!
Can you envision a project, ask for help and input,
then step up and complete it next-level?
We want to assist that very thing, daily!!!
Now accepting sincere tribe members!
Email two days to two months before your arrival.
Don't ask if you can come 4-6 months out
from now. We have no idea if we will be in the country
or planet that far out. We basically live one day at a time.
We offer 2 WEEK and 4-week Workaway stays (FREE). Two-week minimum please.
If life is an illusion we are too, don't come.
It is not real.
If you want REAL, goodness you can touch,
in the now, life full of loving creations,
and sharing, Come in-joy.
That which you can touch is REAL.
always practicing the now.
Do you want to enhance the world NOW?
Bring a small fruit or nut tree, we will plant it and pick
fruit for free fruit pies for years and take branches
and seeds and grow more trees-free food forever!
That makes a real difference in the world!
WHAT WILL IT LOOK LIKE???
We must all be headed to the kitchen at 8:00 AM sharp!
SLOW tea and breakfast and into the cool sunshine at 9:30
We want to assist you in having the EXPERIENCE
you would like to have. Infinite possibilities, talk
to us. Back to nature-
Free Solar oven heat is amazing to learn to work with!
Now that all employment just ended for us. We can make it happen together! We don't want to make a penny here, just share the small burden of fresh food expenses. It has to come from you with 100% of your loving support or it won't work.
The first half of the day: we garden, water plants, gather firewood, do tree trimming, solar oven positioning, care for chickens, level dirt, clean-up, rock collect, move stuff, prepare two nice group meals, make compost, plant seeds, share ideas, create...
All the communal group life activities!
Studying here in the mornings, online college... might not work. Sell
me on how they think it will.
We work together not often as soloists.
We collect fallen-tree firewood, rocks for landscaping, weeds/leaves for the compost, nothing natural wasted, we sort out spoiling food for the chickens. (we have happy free-range hens for eggs only)
WE LOVE to do a group activity project attack for the first hour of everyday!
TOGETHER we make massive advancement each day!!!
We must do EXPANSION projects each day, not just survival.
The other half of the day, YOU ARE GENERALLY FREE to create as you like! We support you here! We don't give regimented lists . NEVER DO OR AGREE TO DO SOMETHING YOU DO NOT WANT
TO DO!!!!! No thanks, we want nothing from an unmotivated heart!
Got it???? lmk
Let's practice a happy, ethical, peaceful, sharing lifestyle
**LOW WATER supply, so 1-2 showers a week MAX per person.
It is cold, not sweaty Nov-April.
If you need a daily shower do NOT come. We don't have enough
water for that!
SUMMER UPDATE: It is HOT, 36-42 Celsius often. June-Sept.
We must have breakfast from 6-7 AM and
then head to the garden area for OUTSIDE time, to beat the heat.
Let's work hard until Lunch and then chill
or continue during the heat.
We do not keep a calendar, we can't really control who comes and when. We can't promise a group, on rare occasion it may be two of us. Each week is a mystery gift. Nobody
is bound to stay here.

TOUCH mother Earth, her life pops out to heal and nourish us!
Experience is a bonus but no experience is OK as well.
This is just the beginning stage, it is a grand place to learn together
and get an education in sustainable food/life STEPS. Let's learn
them together and live the principles. The earth gives food -FREE.
Let's get back to living within that paradigm.
We are adding more large veggie planter boxes, covered
and protected from wild animals.
We want to sprout and plant more fruit trees!
We want to create several Zen gardens,
and nice, natural groomed-landscapes

Yeah, this place is a creative paradise!
WE HAVE tools, equipment, and know-how!
EVERY SATURDAY we pick up 500 kilos of FREE fruit and veggies for us, the chickens and the compost-then back to mother earth. We spend hours processing the food! We can slice and dry fruit, hot peppers, make kale chips, and more
Please CARRY YOUR LOAD Daily:
(look around and ask yourself, "what can be improved here,
what needs to be done?" Anticipate!!!
ADDICTIONS won't work well. FREEDOM rules!
Come if you are committed to the
FREE LIFE of living and giving!
WE WORK PASSIONATELY- hard in the sunshine! (we have hats)
LIVE FREE WITH US! Healthfully!!!
Let's not bring hidden addictions, nor anger, nor gossip, nor deception here, nor laziness. This can be a great place to lose an ego, by not bringing "the world" with you. Turn the phone off?
PLEASE , we prefer NO alcohol, no tobacco, no vices! We don't like force, but we REALLY STRONGLY encourage the experience you will have without this stuff.
Stop smoking tobacco, drinking alcohol and eating meat a month before coming here?
*️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️This is a health-pursuing VEGETARIAN co-op and infinite earth-temple.
Under the bright Sun of God, living with Light and respect.
If it is important that you EAT DEAD ANIMALS, don't come yet, wrong place! We live LIFE and are not connected to a death diet or program of any sort.
The host is a FREEgan
ECO projects and personal growth await us all!!!
It is a mutual dance, and dancing is fun as well
as expansion thru integrity and selflessness.
We enjoy stilling our minds. Peace to all- peace is loving-sharing-
--practice it Here and Now.
Music? Only NATURal Calm Zen music, ours or yours fits the vibe best.
(we do have our favorite ROCK songs at night as an event sometimes)
This place is the escape FROM the popular world stuff.
Enjoy this rare gift of quietude!
Musical instruments are cool. 2 Guitars are here.
We don't have TV here, programming is, well...?
We don't have facebook nor instagram, nor watsap...
This is NOT a sex, drugs and rock-N-roll, free food, free hostel or
for those heading to Yosemite, nor a squatter -ville, nor work/trade farm.
We prefer creating something more like a Monastic Garden!
Where LIFE is being LIVED fully-selflessly!
First comes inner peace and only then can outer peace
be the reality.

It is beautiful and relaxing here, and NICE in the FALL. We speak
pretty good California English. We make GREAT food, and want you to share your cooking too! There are many skills to learn. Metal, wood, sewing, chickens, gardening, fence building, landscaping. We cannot promise if and when these will happen while you are here.
This magical place is a blank canvas and we have a big selection of paints,
and want YOU to add YOUR creativity to it.
We'll keep an ongoing list of many areas where you can choose to jump in and make a big difference!
Each traveler can leave the place even BETTER for the next traveler!

These ideas are worth spreading around the world, let's do it.
We do the stuff here daily. You can choose your days off if needed.
We get up EARLY and put 4+ hours in. There are always people
doing all the misc. stuff around here. We don't really use clocks
and calendars and time-cards.
Let's do 2-4 weeks-ish. We are not doing long-term Workaway exchanges. We'll keep you motivated and then send you out to spread the luv
This host offers a language exchange

Sleeping? a Nice vintage comfy VW CAMPER BUS, or,
bedroom or couches in the big city house. Padded cots on the back porch.
A room for couples in the big Merced house.
A VERY CHILL dog maybe-let's talk. It is important for our hens
to never be stressed not scared or they will not lay eggs. :-(
Typical breakfast-Together, simple: tea, oatmeal, fruit
Bring coffee if you love it.
Group Outdoor Fun projects start at about 8:00 am- before the HEAT
Please DO NOT sleep-in and wander to the kitchen or garden eventually... IT DOES NOT WORK!
FOOD AWARENESS= one serving, NOT 2-4, leftovers are GOOD!!!
we FROWN on gluttony, it is wasteful and self-serving.
FOOD EQUALITY must be understood and practiced with grand awareness, or inequality is felt by others.
Example: If one person gets up early and makes 3 eggs for themselves,
multiply that by 5 people, what do you get? 15 eggs gone in one meal!!!
That is not sustainable. Vegans with a peanut butter PROBLEM-
Addiction need to bring a few bottle to contribute.
Typical lunch: delicious left-overs from the previous night, or sandwiches, chips, fruit, veggies
Typical Dinner: SPECTACULAR Mexican, Tai, Curry, American, or Pasta...

we can do a few things to accommodate that but
don't want to do extreme shopping to meet your requirements.
Please bring your own specialty foods and supplement
with ours as you can.
There will be a wide variety of simple food on hand for group preparations.
Let's ALWAYS EAT TOGETHER, not little groups nor little
deserts for couples or tiny groups only.
Everything that gets fixed should be offered to everyone.
If you are the type to fill your plate three times at a nice
meal, perhaps consider bringing some food to help out.
We operate this thing will almost NO money, but give
it all we have. WE do NOT buy all organic. Too expensive!
CLEAN OTHER's dishes as often as possible! Never leave things in the sink. Wipe the sink clean!!!
FOOD EQUALITY, is a lesson we are learning now. THINK
deeply about that in a communal system.
WE ARE FOODIES!!! BRING YOUR RECIPES!!!
Bring Towel and SOAP: BRING nothing but environment-friendly bathroom and personal products,
VERY LIMITED WIFI: take a break! Every other night or less???
Enjoy being detached from what you left behind!
We offer high-speed wifi, we just don't want to live with people living on it as often as possible. RARE USE is the idea.
We are ALL passionate about the TASKS
and projects here!!!! We don't feel equal
with those who have to take time off
to cry and heal... and be alone
and away from the group.
We love you and think you'd do
better in a much different environment.
We think the best healing comes from pushing
a shovel hard and fast for hours on end, not pouting in the shade.
We are not social workers but we are Social while we Work!
We love going to Yosemite, and try going when we can, we'd love to show you around the National Park, if we get a chance during your stay. Highlights: Fresh air and star gazing, ZEN garden sitting and yoga outdoors. Fresh organic
eggs from happy free-range hens!

More philosophy and practice THAT DIRECTLY APPLIES TO US?
This is an excerpt from Summer:
A relationship is spiritual if it is truly honest. A relationship is spiritual if it is truly honest. It does not mean that you sit around and
talk about spiritual powers, spiritual objects, spiritual images and spiritual levels. That is all idle talk if it is not imbued with the presence and the awareness that is spirituality.
True relationship and true love engender true spirituality. Here you know that you are not alone in the universe, not simply because you are in a relationship with one person, but because you are in a meaningful relationship with life and with the world.
You were sent here to give.
If you are giving, then your spirituality is expressing itself. If you are not giving, then you are frustrated and your spirituality is still in the realm of speculation.
Therefore, the emphasis is for you to discover what you have to give.
This will teach you about your design. Once you learn about your design, you will learn about your Designer. This is how God is experienced.
Perhaps sometime later in life when you look back and see what you have done, you will say, “Now I know who I am. This is what I came here to do,” and you will experience the Designer. Your meaning in the world is about your design and your Designer. Beyond this world it is different.
You came here to do something and you came here to give. You came here to find certain people to join with you
in making your contribution. If that is being accomplished, your spiritual life is active already and the awareness will be with you and the presence will be with you.
Concern yourself with the work you have to do in the world.
Concern yourself with opening yourself to those people whom you recognize as partners and participants in your giving.
There will be spiritual, mental and physical thresholds through which you must pass. Here your physical life will serve your mental life, which in turn will serve your spiritual life. In this way, you will be uplifted and everything will have purpose, meaning and direction for you.
