- Arroyo Grande, California, United States
We serve as a gathering space for the wider community. We enjoy supporting sustainable farming methods, the arts, educational initiatives, and creative building models. We also enjoy celebrating change and transitions, including through solstice celebrations and other gatherings. We hope to encourage a more reflective and cooperative society.
We are located on 5 acres outside of San Luis Obispo, CA. Our community feels rural, but is only a few minutes away from town. We host WWOOFERs and other volunteers from around the world to help on our organic farm and learn small-scale farming and building methods. We offer workshops, lectures, and celebrations throughout the year that are meant to connect the wider community to each other through positive and educational interactions.
The kitchen and living area of the main house acts as a hub open to friends and visitors to the Lavra. We also hold events in our multi-use room in the main house, in which we do yoga/movie nights/music nights/public lectures. We also have a large vegetable garden, vineyard, and an animal area with chickens and milking goats.
