MT Pockets CSA is in its start up phase of development. We’ll be taking an acre and designing the farm from the ground up, using biointensive farming techniques, including livestock. Our goal is to help Dancing Rabbit become more sustainable when it comes to meeting the food needs of our members and resident who don’t garden. We also want to improve the fertility of the soil for generations to come. We will mainly be building infrastructure this season as well as planting and maintaining a small garden to help feed the Container House Workshop participants and to put food away for the coming year.
It’s important to us that you receive the full ecovillage experience so we’ve set up our program to make sure that happens. You’ll work 24 hours a week on the MT Pocket CSA project and 8 hours a week working on other projects around the village, including attending mini workshops or work parties that Dancing Rabbit organizes through our visitor program. You’ll also spend time doing rotational duties like cooking, and other rotating tasks.
You will have an immerse experience in non-violent communication, consensus decision-making, and working with a wide diversity of viewpoints all within a framework of improving our ecological sustainability. You will also gain understanding of what it takes to create a community/develop a new village from scratch. While we expect you to work hard, you will also have ample opportunity to enjoy games of Ultimate Frisbee, swimming, live music, dance parties, singing, and other group activities with other members, residents, and work exchangers.
MT Pocket CSA will cover the fees involved with living at Dancing Rabbit such as, food co-op fees, tent platform fees, village wide and common house fee. You’ll need to provide your own transportation to and from DR, which I can help you figure the logistics of. You’ll need to provide your own tent, tarps, and appropriate clothing.
