We need 4 volunteers
Hi I'm Lindsey and I'm building free off-grid artist studios in the Mojave desert about 30 mins east of Joshua Tree, CA. The land is 5 acres and just getting set up- there is a cabin I'm finishing and a completed earthbag dome. I need all kinds of help and all skill sets are welcome. Currently I am preparing to build a second dome, organizing a large junk pile, and earthbagging a firepit. Other projects for this year include creating a ferrocement water cistern, water catchment system, and creating a number of earthworks on the property. Please read my volunteer reviews (they are honest and accurate), check out the instagram and the project video.
Volunteers should limit their stay to 1-5 nights and be prepared to work ~2-4 hours a day either in the early morning or evening. I provide some food and plenty of recommendations on cool places to explore.
Accommodations are tent or car camping only. YOU MUST HAVE A CAR- NO EXCEPTIONS. Water must be brought in (fill jugs for free at the nearby Oasis of Mara Visitor Center). There is a dry toilet/outhouse and hand-washing station on site.
If you're an adventurous happy helper, hardy camper, and prepared for the conditions of the Mojave desert, please reach out to be part of this exciting project.
Small off-grid cabin is under construction but can comfortably sleep 2 people. Space is ideal for hardy campers or those with a "vanlife" setup.
