    We offer the unique experience of temporarily joining a small, intentional egalitarian community, akin to a tiny ecovillage.

    We will happily share our learning about:
    - permaculture farming
    - raising ethical meat
    - unschooling, home learning, and life-long learning
    - co-operative structure
    - group dynamics and collaborative decision-making
    - herbal lore, plant medicine, and living with the natural rhythms of the seasons
    - expand your cooking skills, especially with whole foods, traditional diets, and slow food
    - hunting and fishing, including archery (though we are still learning!)
    - many languages: English & French; some ASL, Spanish, Ukrainian, Japanese

    . A VW Westfalia camper van is also available for a individual or couple.
