People have asked for a clearer description of how to become a resident.

The first step we ask for all persons who think they might want to become a resident is to visit. Please read the section about what to expect when visiting. We ask that people plan a short term visit of 1 – 2 weeks at first, and we can take it from there.

If things have worked out so far and we all get along and work well together, then we ask that a person become an apprentice for a season (spring, summer or fall, not winter) and see how everything goes after that. This is primarily because there are so many things to learn that are so different from living a modern, mainstream American life. It can be overwhelming to people just ‘detoxing’ from ‘normal’ life.

If we all still like each other and work well together, then we can begin talking about a more long term commitment. For people wanting to become a resident after they have lived at People have asked for a clearer description of how to become a resident.

If we all still like each other and work well together, then we can begin talking about a more long term commitment. For people wanting to become a resident after they have lived at ******* for a season, we ask that they make a commitment to actually live here for a total of 4 seasons. This is not to say that you are not allowed to take a trip or leave toe premises, but that you do actually live on the premises for a year. This is so that you can actually see how the community works through all seasons, can participate in all the different seasons’ activities, and so that both sides can get a good overall feeling for how well we really do all work and play together.

At both the 6 month and 1 year points we will all sit down together and talk about how we feel about living with each other and what our expectations are, etc. If it sounds rather like a relationship, well, it is sort of. Please keep in mind if you want to become a resident that this is not only about us liking you or accepting you – it is also about your needs and expectations, and how you really like living here and if it is suiting you as well.

We are at this time in particular looking for a solid couple to join us on this land.
