A time to work, a time to play

Groundswell is a seedling project with lots of vision for growth. To cultivate that growth, we need lots of helping hands.

Work parties are a great way to contribute to our project and connect. For first-timers who haven’t been here before, a work party offers the opportunity to get to know the residents on the land, without the distraction of the larger crowds that attend our gatherings. Work is balanced with delicious meals and lots of time for relaxation and revelry.

Work parties are a perfect time to learn or share a new skill. We welcome newcomers and old friends. We provide lodging in cabins, nourishing food, and use of our hot-tub and other facilities in exchange for 5-8 hours of volunteer work each day. The work is varied so there is usually something suited to each person’s ability, skill, and experience level.

We ask $15 per day contribution to help with food and other costs, with no one turned away for lack of funds. Contributions can be made upon arrival.

Work parties (usually) happen on the third weekend of every month.

Dates are subject to change. If you’re interested in joining us for one of our work weekends, please register below. If you have any further questions, email us at workparty@groundswellretreat.com.
