Pioneer Phase 1:
Jan 2 – Mar 6, 2020
Near Kalapana, we own a small guava forest about 14 miles away from the original Hedonisia property. This land was not in the flow path so is relatively unaffected by the 2018 Kilauea eruption that destroyed the original pre-volcano Hedonisia community.
We are building a tiny home to have a presence again in Hawaii. We are continuing our rebuilding plans. In Hawaii, we are working with the government to help with rebuilding infrastructure. Our long term goal is to move back to our original property once roads are built and we have access to our land once again.
We are looking for applicants who wish to come to Hawaii from for the Pioneer Phase and then longer term guests for Hedonisia Solitude!
Even if you don’t have building skills you can still be a volunteer! There are many jobs an unskilled person can do, as long as they have enthusiasm for learning!
Our first eco-hut will be rustic, with only minimal amenities. However, it will be located in a lovely forest of Strawberry Guava trees.
We seek pioneers during this informal period when we will be rebuilding. In Phase 1, we can offer stays with basic tent lodgings.
We require 15 hours per week of volunteer time. It will be on a flexible basis while we are building. So you will have lots of time to enjoy Hawaii!
Volunteer stays during Phase 1 can be as little as one week.
The cost is affordable for this working vacation. Camping lodgings are $60 per wk or $200 per month for Pioneer Volunteers. Discounts can be given for those with construction experience!
Hedonisia Community Director, Mojo will be on the island during this period.
Mojo is happy to give free and paid tours to different island attractions as well as grocery and beach trips!
From March 1 to November 2020, we are offering Volunteer, Intern & Guest Programs for those who wish to stay for 3 months or longer.
During this phase you will be reliant on bringing in resources which is why we recommend having a car. In Phase 2, the eco-hut will have no electricity or water. Drinking water is freely available from a public stand 2 miles away. Electricity will be solar chargers or power packs.Apply for Hedonisia Pioneer or Residential Volunteer Programs!
