If you live nearby Asheville and are interested in volunteering on a more regular basis, please email us at email@example.com with your availability, areas of interest, and skills. We are compiling a list of community members who we can call on when we need a little extra help. We do not currently have formal volunteer arrangements or an internship program, but we are open to planning a recurring volunteer arrangement if it’s the right fit.
We are honored to offer free vacation and retreat space to justice workers, community organizers, activists, and others who serve support roles in their communities. You can either stay in our furnished basement (2 queen beds, full private bathroom, limited kitchenette), in your vehicle, or in a tent (we can provide camping supplies). There is a creek, a meadow in its fourth year of healing, fire pits, a small wooded area, an extensive bookshelf, hammocks, porches, and a hot tub to help you rest and rejuvenate. Home cooked dinners may also be available. If you have more questions about this offering, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are interested, please fill out this form. We will respond to you within a week*.

Important Accessibility Notes
Transportation: Yesod is located a 25 minute drive from Asheville, NC. The nearest airport is Asheville Regional Airport (AVL), a 25 minute drive away. Transportation can be challenging for guests without a car: there is no public transit nearby, there are no stores within walking distance, and it can be difficult to get a rideshare/taxi service to pick up from the farm.
Communication: We have strong WiFi immediately around the main house. Cell service is often weak.
Physical Access: Yesod is a working farm in a mountainous region, and much of the land is sloped and uneven. In dry conditions, most cars can drive to camping locations and to the field, where much of our programming occurs. The nearest bathroom to the field is a composting toilet with a cold water sink, which is a 5 minute walk uphill on unpaved ground.
For specific questions about access, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We are deeply committed to facilitating land-based experiences for folks with a variety of access needs.
