Island of Misfit Souls



Spring is coming and we could use some help bringing an ancient historic farmstead back to life.
“We” consists of an amalgamation of families and individuals; the main creative genius Jeff and his crew, and a hopelessly dislexiconic nineteen year old, myself.
We’re in the Green Mountains sandwiched between Pittsford and Brandon Vermont. Our huge stone house and gigantic barn are looking for company.
The first year here was spent getting old structures back on line for living, refinishing the interior of the stone house and setting up some dank patios.  
This coming year is about establishing the semblance of a food base for a colony of crafters and artists, designer and builders.
Looking for help with gardens, orchards, sheep, barns, building, making films and music and being a part of a community that’s for all, not individuals.



Trade a couple days a week of labor for shelter, meals and social life.

Hi Dante! Welcome to permies!

How long will you be accepting people's requests to come over and volunteer to help become part of your community?

When would you like people to come?

How much experience would you like people to have?

What are your thoughts about newbies/amateurs who want to gain experience in a variety of skills and put in the effort to make it happen?

We like people with experience that are humble about it, but we prefer amateurs. We are looking for helpers for the coming spring, and we are always accepting requests.
We like to integrate volunteers into our community, and if they are a good fit, we can have them on for as long as works for them.
Putting in the effort is how things get done, and if you are new to the construction, permaculture or craft-building realms, we would love to help you into it.

Yeah! Well, I'm an amateur, and I am looking for a place to start learning construction, craft-building, and permaculture!

As something I can contribute to be useful while I am learning the ropes, I am good at cooking and could help make some awesome meals for everyone.
I'm also no stranger to household chores, and it's not an issue for me to do sweeping, cleaning, and general maintenance. I do plenty of that while living at college and when visiting family, so, I understand what comes with living at a place. You gotta cleanup after yourself and make sure things are still running properly.

How would coming over in mid to late May possibly sound? (I can't get over sooner, because that's my last semester of college- Jan to early May)

Hey guys, sorry about the delay. It's probably best to send me an email at satarameansdriftwood@gmail.com. It would probably be easier to get in touch that way than openly on the forums. Shoot me a message, and we can start talking!

Also, I thought I should post a few pictures of the farm in the summer...
