We're working on an outdoor glamping / ecovillage experience by giving new life to an old orchard and farmhouse. Last year, with the help of volunteers, we built 4 platforms for our bell tents, built an outdoor kitchen, solar shower, composting toilets, and planted a huge garden!

This spring's projects will be a continuation of this... Mulching and seeding for a large permaculture style garden, building a chicken tractor, solving a grey water system, building onto the outdoor kitchen, setting up tents, and caring for the orchard property. There is a New England barn that will get renovated into a yoga & art studio also! Current position is open starting APRIL 15th - MAY 15th. We would like to host in 1-2 week intervals.

Skills & interests can range from outdoor building, permaculture, landscaping, decorating, art & photography, cooking, solar energy and composting. Manual labor will definitely be involved! We work hard during the days, and help cook and enjoy meals together.

Upstate NY is beautiful and scenic, with an artist culture drawn up from the city. The town is a 2.5 hour drive from NYC. There's an amtrak train line for transportation into the city as well, and bikes on the property. Lots of rolling hills and nearby farms, swimming holes, and good vibes.


Exchange is room and 3 meals a day for 5+ hours of work per day. Flexible on schedule to make it work for everyone.

Thanks for reading!
