About the workproject

We need 3 volunteers

EcoReality Sustainable Land Use and Education Cooperative is devoted to spreading the word about sustainable living practices. We supply a lot of food and value-added products to the wider community, fuelled by our flock of dairy goats and a large greenhouse. We make goat milk soap, cheese, fruit preserves, relishes and salsas, spicy dried tomato chips, and much more! Most of our work is agriculture-oriented, with additional projects available for those with interest and experience in those fields.

We generally share meals, and enthusiastic cooks are welcome! People may take minor meals on their own. With our dairy and eggs, we do not support vegans very well, nor do we serve meat.
