We will help you build a modest cabin for your residence to live in.
We will work together to maximize the sustainability of our little purpose built community.

Forgot to add a bit about the application process....

Usually we have a 15 min phone call
Then some kind of face to face / Work Weekend
Followed by a work week
Then a season invite
At the end of that we might extend a long term invite

Looking forward to chatting with you all

Hi there I sent you an email about looking to be apart of your community soon. It would be a move for me and if I can get some solar panels before I make the trip there. I think that would be a great way to contribute, I have some metal working skills and welding skills. My father taught me carpentry through most of my younger years. Thank you and I hope to hear from you contact me at toastdeath22@gmail.com yes a silly email but I have had it for years haha

Hope this finds you well. I was wondering if you are open to international interns.
 
For my next feat, I will require a volunteer from the audience! Perhaps this tiny ad?
