  • Description


    Hello friends!

    We are a community of sweet, simple, nature-loving folks living off-grid on 400+ acres nestled in the woods, surrounded by tens of thousands of wild and protected wilderness.

    We have a (usually) year-round creek that cuts through the land along with a year-round spring that feeds directly into our underground water storage. The sound of the flowing water, the trees dancing in the wind, giggling children and the creatures of the forest are the only sounds that you can hear. You can climb up the hills to get spectacular views or take shelter in the valley by the water's edge. We have thick woods and open meadows with trails going in so many different directions. The land is so very beautiful and diverse. We are totally secluded and private yet still only 25 minutes to a "big" happening town - Ashland.

    We are 20 adults and 11 kids -- ranging from 2 to 13. We have a 6 year-old boy and 4 year-old girl. We also have ducks, and a sweet huge livestock guardian dog.

    There are currently 12 different structures that are inhabited by our community (ranging from a couple cabins, hobbit cottages, strawbale studio, cob cabin, yurts, treehouse, tiny homes and a studio). We also have a couple of tipis and bell tents and many amazing and private camping sites spread throughout the land along with a few composting toilets, couple outdoor showers, an indoor community kitchen/hang-out zone and a hot tub and sauna that we use Oct-May.

    A few of these buildings are used for darkness retreats. Folks travel from all over the States to come do dark retreat here.

    Come join us in the woods! There is space for people with many different backgrounds and skills.

    There are many families on the land with a wide variety of interests. We love to share our passions with others when we have the time. While you are here you will likely have the opportunity to learn some primitive skills including things like wild crafting, deer processing, and fire making. You could get into meditation, growing organic food, playing late night games, having dance parties. You might build something with hand tools, build something with power tools, use a chainsaw, chop wood, make fire, carry water, climb a tree, draw a picture, sing a song, drop in a hole in the ground and scream, jump in the creek, bathe in the sun, sweat in the sauna, collect flowers, shovel compost, grow some real muscle, cook a meal, read a book, or take a nap. You most certainly will be playing with kids, hiking through the nearby wilderness, playing volleyball with the crew, and enjoying community gatherings…

    We work hard, cherish the land we live on, and love the people we have surrounded ourselves with. Come join us!

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We all have so much to teach and share with each other. We highly value diversity and culture and look forward to creating and sharing in a melting pot of different ideas and ways of living and being. From sharing songs, stories, dance, and music, to natural building, natural dyeing techniques, wild-harvesting, gardening and meditation... nature is abundant with resources here - the sky is not the limits!

    We are looking for people who can commit to staying for at least 2-4 weeks during the months April-September.

    You will be asked to work 5 hrs/day 5 days a week.

    Depending on your skills and interest you may be involved in some or all of these tasks:

    Gardening & land tending:
    - Weeding, prepping beds, uppotting, pruning, harvesting, watering…
    - Working in the fruit orchard
    - Removing invasive species
    - Brush burning
    - Forest tending
    - Mulching pathways
    - Harvesting firewood/chopping wood

    We would LOVE to host workawayers who know their way around the garden, who are willing to do some hard work get their hands dirty. Every year the garden takes a different shape depending on who in the community is inspired to get their hands dirty. This year we have big garden plans- expanding our growing area, growing staple crops, and a large diversity of other culinary veggies. We do always grow veggies- lots of lettuce, tomatoes, kale, peppers, melons, corn and squash…. We have perennial flower beds, a young fruit tree orchard, and a 2000 sq ft. greenhouse. If you don’t have any gardening experience, no worries! We can always use more helping hands and would love to share what we know.

    We LOVE hosting workawayers with building know-how. If you have experience we are open to you leading some self guided projects. Workawayers in years past have helped to build a beautiful treehouse, a roundwood shed, our lovely sauna, and a community strawbale music room. Some builders on the land strictly use hand tools and others use power tools - there is room here for all types!

    We are in an ongoing process of developing and cultivating this land into a sanctuary that deeply nourishes all who are here and all to come. There is so much to do! We will surely love your company and your help. We look forward to hearing from you!
