Activities & Shift

Tasks here are not taken in shifts. They are posted for everyone to see and choose between and do when they have time. Many tasks can be done solo with some instruction. Some require multiple people to coordinate time and effort. The simplest tasks are to just carry items from here to there, or pick up things in the yard. The most complex involves home improvement or computer networking or graphic design. Most fall somewhere in between.


Rules

No smoking tobacco indoors. No indoor pets other than in the building dedicated to pet owners. No illegal activity.
