The project was my first worldpackers experience and I don't think it could have been better! My time here was truly life-changing. I learned so many valuable things, from healthy communication skills, to creating sustainable lifestyle habits, to trying new foods. I highly recommend the project to everyone, but especially for those who need a place to re-connect with themselves. Anders and Shama have built a beautiful space physically and spiritually. I met so many amazing people who truly inspired me and made me feel at home. Thank you so much for this experience, I will never forget it!

It took me some time to find the words to describe this experience and throughout my thoughts on it I kept coming back to the idea of the project as being beautifully unfinished and constantly evolving. Every day I spent at the project feels like it had importance to myself and to the beautiful land and space around me. It's astonishing how Anders and Shama have created such an incredible place and environment to facilitate growth and one I'll be forever grateful for. In my time there I've made amazing friends and learned so much! This experience was so much more than I expected in the best way.

I had three goals in which I wanted to accomplish during this visit. One was to experience a retreat to help me ground myself and get in touch with nature. Two, to learn about sustainability--high level logistics and lifestyle. Also, the value of communication, being and working as a community to co-create (a valuable new word I learned here) and how effective it can be on actualizing a vision. And thirdly, to get involved in the everlasting development and evolution of this incredible destination by giving back in contributing in ways I can be useful. ALL GOALS HAVE BEEN MET!

It's truly hard to put into words how amazing and life changing my experience at the project was. The moment I stepped foot onto the land I was overwhelmed with feelings of love, peace and happiness. I have learned so much about myself and how to live off grid in a beautiful community. And Anders taught me how to use power tools which was absolutely awesome!!! Anders and Shama instantly made me feel at home and I can honestly say I have a second family there and I cannot wait to come back!! So much love to everyone I met. I will keep the memories we had so close to my heart forever. 10/10

There wasn't a day that I didn't feel grateful for the experience I was having and the people I was sharing it with. What I believe sets the project apart from other work-stay experiences is that beneath every work day, meal, and meeting there exists a fundamental desire to cultivate community, friendship, and personal well being. I was privileged to get to know a wonderfully diverse group of folks during my time here, and to be reminded that even in the midst of deep hardship and uncertainty there is every hope for a brighter tomorrow. To Anders, Shama, and everyone I met, my deepest gratitude.
