Our small community center in the heart of New Orleans is growing and building. Thank you for your interest in helping.This is our fourth year to host with HelpX and its been a great! The volunteers have been a big help and our Community Center is a excellent choice for those looking for a real New Orleans local community experience.

Located one block off the Bayou next to one of the largest city parks in the country with only a short bike ride to the French Quarter, we feel this is the best spot in town for a combination of nature/peace/health and city fun! We are located in Mid City which is easy access by bike trails to anywhere in New Orleans. Restaurants, music venues and grocery stores are in walking distance - some with local and organic options!

Your accommodation will be provided in an Airstream trailer, a small cabin or a private room. All with use of a community kitchen and bath room. We also have safe off-street parking for those traveling and sleeping in VW vans or other types of campers. Volunteers work 20 hrs per week. Those wanting to offer more help and work 30hrs per week also receive a $100 weekly food stipend.

We need help with community gardening, landscaping, painting, art projects, construction/building & organizing events. We also assist elders and other neighbors that may need a hand. Our Community Center has weekly classes in Yoga, Meditation, Contemplative Dance, Music Performances and other Special Events.

We've recently acquired some forest land on the Atchafalaya River along with a building and property in Downtown Lafayette, Louisiana which is the heart of Acadiana (Cajunland)! We are developing a second community center and river retreat there so volunteers may have opportunities to visit and or help out with these projects too.

*** Please note that we only accept HelpX volunteers in Louisiana from January through end of May. For the rest of the year our focus is on volunteering on projects for the Louisiana Himalaya Association in India (www.lhainfo.org).

Thanks for your interest in helping !
