  • Description


    Here is a unique opportunity for the new growth of 2021 .... help welcome for fun projects.
    My home studio is a lake front bungalow like cottage that needs support like:
    * Landscaping, planting trees, permaculture box building, birdhouse making all related to the eco habitat.
    * Carpentry craftsman skills to make basic country style shelves and cabinets,
    * The home needs some interior TLC overall and yard mowing.
    Brain skills!
    * The photo/video art file needs organization to upgrade for a personal portfolio.
    * Experienced community landscape permaculture planners to help us manifest a future vision for volunteers residence.

    There are multiple opportunities for you.
    Retired! I am a multi-talented artist and experienced carpenter with expertise in historical restoration, passive solar
    concepts. I established a sanctuary in Belize for ecology wildlife projects then returned back to Louisiana a
    decade ago.
    The Sanctuary offers to friends & family a holistic gathering to retreat, this is a private home, not a BUSINESS..
    This space over the years was built using recycled materials all completely from scratch. This is super cool place
    on the lake used for private holistic gatherings and co-network with our non-profit art & cultural community.
    As a volunteer myself, I have helped to develop our local art community. Our progress and popularity is nationally and
    internationally recognized by its unique activities and warm hospitality. You can be involved in these activities doing
    your stay.

    We can set up a phone appointment to further discussion.
