The Experience

We need help maintaining the homestead activities on our property as we are often out in the community working on the logistics of our projects. Sometimes all we need is someone to lend a hang with dishes, other days we are looking for someone to shell 10 pounds (5 kilos) of peanuts. Currently we are leading a stove building or earthen construction workshop at least every other week, which you are encouraged to participate
