Host is kind, flexible and easy going, The farm has many interesting people stopping by through the days. The set up is a bit hippy and freestyle so there isn't a set schedule for daily task or projects. I mostly worked in the garden, the build interior that people live is in rough shape, similar to a squat. There is a woodshop there and lot of project that could be done if one is very handy. But there is a lack of clear focus, leadership and group collaboration to orient the task. Often I felt as if I didnt know what to work on. Experience can be a very relaxed escape from urban scene .
