The Exchange

We have an awesome Airbnb studio apartment that we rent out throughout the year but we want to make it even nicer with creative and hard working help. Volunteers would help maintain and upgrade our butterfly and hummingbird gardens, help create a better gathering place for music jams and other events, perhaps paint more murals. Please look at our website to see when we AREN'T booked to ensure that space is available.
