want to be there at the beginning
of something?

summer sessions

This summer [July + Aug 2021] we will be hosting a series of  3 - 3 week ‘live-in’ volunteer sessions. This will be our very first program! Come stay with us and help us build! We will live together, fill our days with manual labor, eat watermelon, cook (and of course dance). We miss you! And we want to see ALL our friends (reach out to us and help us find ways for this to be restful and possible for you). [please see covid-19 page for pandemic related information]

Each session is limited to 25 people (including staff).
