We are an off grid  eco sustainable organic farmstead that incorporates organic sustainable agroecology, permaculture, agroforestry, and regenerative agriculture in order to live within the means/carrying capacity of the land and within the earth fair share ecofootprint,  so we co create/responsibly steward a more  fair, sustainable, and healthy planet.  We live more simply so others (*human and other species”) can simply live.  Popai has evolved into a sustainable living and educational project.  We need help from peace corp like minded folks  so we can help save/caregive the planet.  I want to attract folks who have more altruistic/giving personalities and who want to directly stop the insanity, vs self indulgence/takers who are looking for a new adventure/vacation/cheap hangout  (still about me, myself, and I, escapism, and adding to the problem). Learn to become part of the solution instead part of the problem at Popai’s educational living project.  We are an educational living project that aligns with peer reviewed scientific evidence that inspires us to come up with solutions to co-create-caregive the mother of us all in a fair, healthy, sustainable and responsible way.  Rick is a  physician and needs help so that he  can finish writing a book and educate rather than medicate about creating a fair, responsible, healthy and sustainable Earth.  Do you feel the pulse of the planet?  Have you heard the voice of Ishmael the Gorilla?

Long term/occasional short term couples or single folks, peace corp like folks, committed to deep ecology, permaculture, and are health conscious, drug/addiction/materialism free, responsible, energetic, disciplined, fit, stable couple/single (age 20-40's) wanted to “care give” and give back to the mother of us all.    Available- October 15, 2011

We are asking that the couple/single "homestead dance"or work trade in exchange for housing: 18 hours per week for single (e.g. 3 hours, 6 days per week) or 36 hours a week per couple.  Hours are flexible. The dance entails: chopping coconuts, milking goats, coppicing nitrogen fixing trees (mostly calliandra calothyrsus, gliricidia sepium, leucaena leucocephala, albizia falcataria, casuarina equisetifolia or short-leaf ironwood) for green manure and fodder, garden/structure maintenance, making dog food and supplements for the cats.  We use only hand tools such as loppers, bow saws, pruning saws, axes and transport fodder, green/animal manures in wheelbarrows. Bulk organic food available for extra hours (about 2 hours per week for most of your calories). Six months minimum stay, but occasionally open to short term. Four structures are available. One is a 20 foot ferro cement yurt shape (The Yurt Cottage). Another is is 20 x 40 foot single sided cedar house ( Beverly’s Barn)both with panoramic ocean views, rain water catchment stored in ferro-cement tanks, hot shower, stove, refrigerator, wireless internet, surfing four miles away, snorkeling 1½ miles.  There is also a living structure, partially subterranean made from living Ironwood trees, that is in progress and is 2o x20 feet.  There is another 10x20 single sided cedar structure that we call the “Reservoir Resort or R Resort).  We share excess organic eggs, goat milk, yogurt, vegetables, and tropical fruits. Desire pet, child, and auto free. County bus transportation is $1. Please send your resume, references, and photo.  Live local, think global and be hopeful

Rachel Carson, early in 1963 in one of her last lectures before her death from cancer.  “....I suppose it is rather a new, and almost a humbling thought, and certainly one born of this atomic age, that man could be working against himself.  In spite of our rather boastful talk about progress, and our pride in the gadgets of civilization, there is, I think, a growing suspicion-indeed, perhaps an uneasy certainty-that we have been sometimes a little too ingenious for our own good.  In spite of the truly marvelous inventiveness of the human brain, we are beginning to wonder whether our power to change the face of nature should not have been tempered with wisdom for our own good, and with a greater sense of responsibility for the welfare of generations to come"
.”Those who contemplate the beauty of the Earth find reserve of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.  Rachel Carson.

You must be the change you wish to see in the world.

,"The world provides enough to satisfy everyman's need, but not everyman's greed." Ghandi

"Only after the last tree has been cut down" Only after the last fish has been caught Only after the last river has been poisoned Only then will you realize that money cannot be eaten-- Cree Native American saying--

Chief Seattle said, “This we know.  The earth does not belong to man; man belongs to the earth.  This we know.  All things are connected like the blood which unites one family.  All things are connected.  Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth.  Man does not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it.  Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.”

Hello, this opportunity sounds amazing! I think this would be a great thing for me to think about doing. It sounds like i would fit well with the descriptions you gave of the place and its environment. However i am currently in school for the rest of the year, graduating college in may. Is this an opportunity that would still be available next year?
