The Exchange

Our vegan-organic garden is not for profit, but space where we grow food for our volunteers and visitors, as well as teaching others how to grow healthy, nutritious plant foods without using any chemicals or animal-based fertilizers. We need your help with general gardening activities. We use home-made vegan compost, EM Bokashi, and garden-grade spirulina as fertilizers!

Program Details

We ask helpers to contribute 5-6 hours a day (plus after-dinner clean-up) for six days out of the week.

We provide you with three meals a day, and your own private cabin for sleeping. Amenities are at the communal house, where we have a shared bathroom and kitchen.

On your days off, we can take you down to town, or sometimes even to a beautiful place to enjoy a hike.


Activities & Shift

We ask that all visitors who come to help us be prepared to exercise their personal integrity and work ethic during their stay. Because volunteer duties do not always follow specific hours, and our needs change every day, helpers are asked to participate in a variety of tasks. We understand that different tasks suit different people and always do our best to take that into consideration.


Rules

We expect everyone to respect our vegan way of life while they are here, and to refrain from smoking cigarettes indoors. We also ask people not to visit when they are sick or coming down with a cold or anything similar. We have some more detailed guidelines that we share with people once we begin communication.
