Off the grid eco-retreat needs your help in Hawaii
Maui Eco Retreat is located along the ocean on the north shore of Maui, with beautiful hiking trails, waterfall lagoons, and spectacular views. Secluded and romantic, yet only 15 minutes from town. It’s a place where you can rest, pray, meditate, explore, or write the next chapter of your life in real Hawaii.
Maui Eco Retreat has 15 acres of land, called “the greenest spot on Maui” and are surrounded by 18 acres of cliffs and oceanfront. Its hiking trails lead to fresh water pools and a swimmable 180-foot tall waterfall. This land was declared a “resting place of mature souls” by the ancient Hawaiians.
The property is only a 30 minute drive to the quaint town and beaches of Paia and 15 minutes from Ho’okipa Beach, the surfing capital of the world.
Maui Eco Retreat was built on agricultural land and yet the ‘main crop’ is inspiration, and so the focus is on educating short and long-term visitors how to live sustainably. The land was built and designed with ecologically friendly concepts in mind. Owners Kutira & Raphael are firm believers in living harmoniously with higher beliefs and using the best, cleanest technologies available today.
The volunteer program is based on 30 hours of work per week. Good communication skills and openness to improve are expected.
Work possibilities can include supporting Maui Retreat with housekeeping, maintenance – if you are skilled for small repairs, office help, computer skills.
Other possible work includes helping with our organic community gardens, with the seed station, composting, chicken and bee care, and help with trail maintenance to the ocean and waterfall. Help also neeed in caring for the ponds, landscaping and maybe learning how to trim the coconut trees.
Working hours are mostly 9am to 3pm, but can be flexible as long as 30 hours are completed each calendar week. Some jobs, like feeding chickens, might need daily attention. The work can be demanding and when your work is done the time is yours to learn, play or focus on what nourishes your spirit.
If you have a special skill you would like to contribute you’re welcome to apply. Cooks, artists, computer wizards, green thumbs, and many other talented people were participating in the volunteer program before.
Living off the grid and being totally supported by Mother Nature requires awareness. Please turn off lights when not needed and take short showers. It is an incredible experience to feel free of thought pollution and of power lines. We are sure it will be very beneficial for your soul, mind and body.
