Friends in Residence
Friends in Residence stay with us for a minimum of four weeks and up to twelve weeks, sometimes longer. Full board is provided in exchange for twenty hours work in the kitchen, the garden, the property, depending on our needs, and your interests and gifts. The rhythm of the day makes time to worship, study, walk, play and enjoy life in community on the property. A car is available for FiR's to spend time off site. Contact the Director to apply or for more information.
Gardening Weeks are held in every season - planting, weeding, harvesting and preparing beds for growing food. We worship, eat and learn together while growing food for the kitchen. Join us for a relaxed time of community. Summer Gardening Week is from February 13 to 16. Cost is $44 per day, children free. Register here.
