Last Updated: January 20, 2020

Looking for assistance in developing a homestead that also serves as a healing sanctuary for those on a spiritual journey or looking to mend a broken heart. The land has a way of holding space for both.

The property is located in SW Louisiana, 3 hours from New Orleans and 2.5 hours from Houston. The property is 2 acres with a 3 bedroom, 1.5 bath country home.

We have accomplished much over the last 5 years There is still much more to do. No two days will be the same. I try to balance projects so they are not mundane.

I need assistance in small remolding projects, building walking paths, outdoor projects, gardening, general inside cleaning and organizing. Also looking for those creative souls...:) Ready to start a wine bottle wall. I have hundreds I have collected, some I earned some were donated. Also looking for anyone with web design, SEO, or other online skills. Have tons of fabric for some sewing projects around the homestead.

I have taken a sabbatical from New Orleans to see this project through. You may share home with other HelpXers. You will connect with Mother Nature and live a simple lifestyle. You will eat well and enjoy much laughter.

Will provide transportation from New Orleans or Houston should you not have transportation to the land. You MUST give me MUCH prior notice so I can arrange pickup with my schedule.

Very relaxed and non-structured environment but we stay VERY busy. This is a TRUE labor of love.

Any knowledge you can share on herbal gardening, organic gardening would be appreciated.

Current projects through summer are making herbal products, gardening, building a wine bottle wall, staring an herb growing area to sell at the weekend farmers market.

This is community living and we share the home. We try to grow our souls daily in some way.

The MAIN lady of the house is Sadie Rose, a beautiful black lab. Help to care for her is always on the "to do` list. :)

Come help out and "Grow Your Soul" at the same time.



Much Love and Light...

Renee`
