We are devoted to the global paradigm shift toward hope and abundance through our mission of valuing diversity, modeling nature, and redefining wealth.

Duties may include: seed sowing, nursery care, soil preparation, transplanting, weeding and cultivation, perennial care, greenhouse crops, harvesting, seed saving, propagation, food storage and food processing.
– Stipend dependent on experience, not less than $1000 per month
– Private, on-farm housing in a rustic tiny house (basic heat and electricity)
– Shared kitchen/dining/library spaces with internet access and laundry facilities
– Full board of daily meals crafted from farm produce
