Happy to have this opportunity to offer a local & cultural learning experience to new friends from around the globe! Helpx volunteers have been a big help in the past and many have become good friends and moved on to volunteer with some of the other other programs I volunteer with, both in Louisiana and in India. Most have come away with a feeling of having shared their time on projects that are meaningful and helpful.

Your accommodation will be private and provided in a small very basic cabin in a quiet back yard garden of the main house. The bathroom and kitchen and washer and dryer are shared. Looking for helpers that can stay for at least three days or longer.

At present one volunteer is needed to help with a gardening, house cleaning, art projects and some simple computer work. Some days help will be needed at a nearby yoga/meditation/community center. On other days we will be renovating an old house and developing a yoga center in Lafayette, Louisiana where help is needed in painting and some simple building. Lots of good opportunities to learn some new skills!

In exchange for 15 hours of helping per week you will get use of a bicycle and a kayak and your accommodation is free. For every hour over the 15 in one week you will get $10 per hour for food and personal use.

The house is located near the Bayou St John and one of the largest city parks in the country. It's only a short bike ride to the French Quarter. This is the best spot in town for a combination of nature/peace/health and city fun! 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!

*** Please note that New Orleans helpers are needed annually from January through end of May only. From June through December I'm volunteering with Louisiana Himalaya Association in India (

Thanks for your interest in helping !
