Please email us to set up a visit. We welcome visitors from April through the end of September for up to two weeks initial visit. Longer stays are are negotiable if we are a good social fit. Please do not bring pets during your visit. During the warmer months, we ask visitors to camp. In cool and rainy weather, we have some indoor spaces available. We also ask for a donation of $3 per day to offset grocery costs and a labor exchange of about 4 hours per day, depending on the season and current activities.

We host sunnytime volunteers and visitors during the months of June through September, and we are seeking new members. We encourage folks who may be interested in joining our ecovillage to visit during the sunny times of the year for an initial introductory stay of two weeks, after which longer stays can be negotiated. We ask all visitors to donate $25 per week to offset extra food casts, and for those who plan on staying for more than a day or two to participate in activities and work on the land for an average of 4 hours per day, fluctuating with the season and current activities.
We have 3 dogs and 4 cats on the land, and we ask visitors to leave their pets at home.
Projects we are involved in include plastering light-clay-straw pottery studio, finishing a small pond/greywater reclamation system, rebuilding the party deck, creating a cob oven, maybe an outdoor kitchen, building maintainance, gardening and landscaping, tree planting.
