I was more than excited to join the team! Both Brian and Kristy are super welcoming and everyone was great. For being new hosts, they are pros! The heart of their goal is sustainable practices with practical development to grow a community. Expect a spiritual and experiential livelihood! This is the outdoor, simple, basically primitive experience (you could even stay in your own tent if you wanted). -Right next to a national forrest!- Our work hours were just as promised and they were more than kind to acquire anything to make your stay more comfortable. Definitely going back some day!
