Hi all,

I'm on a 50-acre property just north of San Antonio, TX where there is a kick-ass primitive skills/survival school called The Human Path (www.thehumanpath.org). My partner Michael and I are caretakers here, and are in charge of leading the WWOOFer community. We're trying to keep 3 volunteers on hand for another month, and would like 1 person to stay until mid-late June and possibly for the summer, if there is such a brave soul (the summer heat is brutal here).

At the end of this month, there are 2 positions opening up: one for 4-6 weeks and one for at least 10 weeks. Both positions involve a chore rotation for animals/waste systems and work on a natural home building project. Volunteers are allowed to sign up for classes for free, which I think adds tremendous value to working here. The values and community here are fantastic, and interested volunteers would also be welcome to join in on our land remediation projects. This land was a limestone quarry site and is severely degraded- we are very excited to lead restoration efforts using keyline design and intensive grazing techniques.

If you're interested let me know, I'd be happy to answer further questions!

Kasey,

I was wondering if the volunteer opportunity was still available for this summer?

If so, could you tell me a little bit more about it?

Thanks a bunch,
Morgan

Hi Morgan, that remains to be seen! The summers are very harsh and we would definitely not want someone coming out here right in the middle of it. Rather, if a volunteer were to come soon and gradually ease into it, it would be decided as time went on whether it would be worth their while to stay, or ours to continue leading projects.

So what we are really looking for is someone to come asap. As time goes on, the invitation window narrows and by say, May it will be closed. Hope that answers your question. If you'd be available to come sooner rather than later I'd love to tell you more!
