Program Details

We expect that someone visiting is interested in experiencing what it is like to be part of a very well-established intentional community. No two are alike, we don't expect a Worldpacker to know whether this might be a match for them. That's why we appreciate extensive discussions and a visit prior to agreeing to a longer stay.
We are honored by the opportunity to share our model with those sincerely interested in experiencing what has organically evolved here over the years.

We're committed to continuing our diligent protocols to keep Covid out of our community.
This requires a visitor to quarantine for 14 days upon arrival....observing social distancing from community members while participating outdoors. Following 14 days by continued quarantining with the community.

Activities & Shift

We have a very fluid, organized and balanced schedule....shifting with priorities as necessary. One's 2 days off might be mid-week, for example....~if we did a project through the weekend.
Most projects are collaborative and fun.


It's a healthy environment all the way around.
Simple rules: Respect for all beings.
Zero tolerance for gossip, violence of any kind (including language), drugs, alcohol, expression of negativity.
