Most of us contribute hours towards living here. The hours vary depending on what feels to be taken care of and our personal interaction with money and energy upon living here. Some stay and contribute to food and board, others pay and work for food. It varies depending on each persons skills and financial situation.
This all provides for your room & living expenses, internet and mostly organic food. The food consists of mainly organic produce, raw milk from a dairy and wild harvesting.
There are generally, lentils, rice, flour, vegetables and occasionally treats. We are Vegetarian only, not Vegan or Raw. No special diets are catered for it is your responsibility to check in before arriving.
The food is prepared by the community members so everyone is making, sharing and caring for each other.
There is a vegetable garden, 1000 macadamia nuts, mango trees and grounds to care for.
