[text size=”16″]Are you:
traveling the world?
a dedicated Woofer?
looking for a new life experience?[/text]
[text size=”20″]You can arrange a short stay at the Arc 38 to fit your schedule.[/text]
[text size=”14″]A benefit that we offer to all people is the ability to engage in our lifestyle for a short time without having to become a more dedicated long term member.
Our version of a work exchange means to partake in the lifestyle of long term members on community grounds.
You’ll be given the freedom of choice to shadow different members performing different types of work, essentially building your own experience at your own pace.
[panel title=”What you should know”]
– This opportunity is available from April through October of every year. November through March is frigid and we don’t have the indoor spaces required to accommodate people. Ideally you would engage in this experience for anywhere from 2 weeks to 1 month.
– All people who wish to partake in this must go through a three day trial. Don’t be nervous, this trial period is just as much for you as it is for us, we are simply trying to help you to answer the question, “is this community for you?”.
– All people are recommended to spend 3 hours a day doing work to help the community. There is a lot to do around the property and some of what you could be doing is agriculture, land cleanup, common space cleanup, cooking, food processing, event preparation, carpentry, camp space preparation and much more dependent on your skills and interests.
– Before you make this decision you should check out our Mission, Goals and Values and our Rules and Guidelines to get an idea of what we’re about. It will help you to decide whether or not you should take this chance.
– If you’re still a little nervous about making plans to stay for a few weeks, try planning for a three day visit.
[panel title=”What you should bring”]
– Unless you will be transporting yourself to and from the community, you will require bringing your own camping gear. This simply means a tent and bedding, we have grounds set up to accommodate your camp space on the mountain.
– Bliss, it’s a Rainbow term for having your own cup, bowl, silverware/chopsticks and/or anything you would generally use to consume nutrients. If you don’t have bliss we’ll do our best to help you out when you get here.
– We can help you to sustain your needs but we are still a young community. Plan on bringing some food or cash to help yourself while you’re here. We will have at least one meal a day for you but at this time we are still bare-bones.
