I'm a guy in my late 20s, and I bought this property in January of 2013. With the help of friends, couch surfers, and lots of wasteful construction sites I have so far built two small shacks, a chicken coop, a tree house, several raised garden beds, a composting toilet and other things all FOR FREE using building materials found in dumpsters. I have just recently finished obtaining all the permits to build my house, which I have only just started. And I have a big pile of lumber ready to go!

I'm looking for people who want to come be a part of the community here, and help with various projects. There are typically between 3 and 12 people living on the property at a time. Some of us (myself included) have jobs which take up a lot of our time. Not only do we dumpster dive building materials, but also food. If you're not okay with eating this "reclaimed" food, you'll have to buy most of your own food.


There is a pretty good mix of skilled work and unskilled work needed. My mai... more inside

I am a sole operator of a home with an urban completely organic garden in the middle of Lafayette, La, the heart of Cajun country. I'm walking distance and biking distance to awesome music venues and dancing, as well as some great Cajun cuisine if that's your druthers. Plenty of other choices available as well. I need help with cleaning house as I have a B&B, cleaning pots as I have a food business for which I cook for the local farmer's market. I do things unconventionally, and occasionally am experimenting on making a fence that utilizes recycled materials. I have an organic garden so building soil and creating garden beds. Help with keeping up a permanent perennial garden for bees. I have 4 goofy chickens who are more like annoying pets that egg producers. There's an aquaponic system on site for growing greens of all kinds as well as organic permaculture beds. Fun activities that can be done include art, eating my wonderful food *I'm a GREAT cook*, music venues, dancing, swa... more inside

I need simple assistance with either some very simply carpentry work or some assistance with building a garden. In exchange for work once to 3 times a week, I can offer an infinite amount of housing. If you have zero skills and can assist with grabbing tools and giving me advice then I can house you as well. I am not picky. There has been a few people who never did any work due to lack of opportunity, and I was perfectly OK with that. They were still willing to help and that's the biggest part.

About my house. It is still under heavy construction. It needs just about everything. There is currently no plumbing, and electricity will be coming shortly. I'm sure it will be a few short weeks and ill be a very happy man.

I tell all my guests that if you hate my place and want to leave then it wont hurt my feelings. I understand if someone can't live the way I do. Come and stay for a little and see how you like it. I do prefer long term guests than people who stay for short... more inside

We are landscaping our property to open our Air BnB Guesthouse with four bedrooms and a camping area all centered around a 400 sq ft treehouse in a urban setting. Projects include planting shrubs, creating new flower beds, installing a pond, moving paint from a shed. We have some drainage projects and rain barrels to install.
