That was my first Worldpackers experience and definitely an unconventional one. The desert is so beautiful and the living conditions are so much better than described in the survivor's guide. There is a certain degree of freedom in terms of choosing a project you want to work on, but once a project is chosen, the commitment is expected. Erik is a great host, kind and generous, and a very interesting person to have conversations with as well. I was the only worldpacker on the property for about 2 weeks, but never felt unsafe. Overall, it was a memorable experience, and I'm very grateful for it

This was my first worldpackers experience and it was amazing! Erik is one of the best person I've met in my life, and we get well in any aspect of my living in the eco village. This is not a place for anyone, but I think anyone that is involved in community living and sustainability can learn a lot from this place. Living following the daylight really changed my life, and in the eco village I learned to be conscious about every aspect of living: working, eating, managing resources, managing waste and be part of a community. I hope more people go to the eco village to help him improving the place :)

Desert is not for everybody, however, Eric is very good with ensuring you're fully aware of what you're signing up for. I loved my stay here, and I feel empowered by this experience in my abilities. I learned how to use power tools, build dome buildings, mud walls, etc. On the weekends, we always went for adventures in nature -hot springs, slot canyons, mountains, sand dunes. It was truly amazing! I miss this place already:)

An unforgettable life experience, every day was a different adventure, the desert isn't a place for everyone and that's why the moments you live there are unique. Erik is a wonderful host, dedicated and committed to building a sustainable life and community in every way. In 2 months I was able to design and build in earth, plastic, wood and glass, learn about solar water and electricity systems, natural and passive methods of heating and cooling, composting and gardening, plus I went to an oasis, hot springs, rock climbing, hiking and more. the eco village become my home and I'll surely come back

Erik is an insanely generous, and friendly host. The first week of my trip was just Erik and I. I never once felt unsafe by myself and Erik immediately felt like a long time friend. He went out of his way to take me to town with him and do some fun activities. I appreciated that all food was provided and that Erik would pick stuff up from the store I wanted, but please don't come here to take advantage of that and expect caviar and lobster. Despite the listed positions you will help with all aspects of life on the eco village which I really liked. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any Q's
