Welcome to where the clouds are born! Since we receive a lot of requests we have decided to open the Organic Art Ranch to weekend volunteers during the beautiful months of June and July. We welcome people who want to see how the Organic Art Ranch works, who don’t mind doing work outside and getting their hands dirty, who happily help us with our homesteading chores, try some gardening, enjoy the silence of nature, go hiking, and live with us for a couple of days. Be in nature, learn from us, try a different lifestyle, breath in the fresh mountain air.
