Work Programs

Thank you for your interest in the Isle of You -Naturally Work-Exchange Program. Please kindly review the following information to see if this is the right situation for you.

The Isle of You farm is a spiritual sanctuary. Our mission is to provide the natural environment where people learn to rejuvenate the mind and body through the most divine nakedness, simplicity, relaxation, meditation, gardening and farming. Our primary focus is to help ourselves and others, to work on their divinity and to get back to their perfection, by allowing themselves the time to be quiet, tranquil, and retrospective.
We are very small, with my gay partner and I owning and running the farm and sanctuary. We are nudists and run the farm naked 24 / 7 and ask that our workers do the same. This gives our guests the freedom to remove their clothes and experience our basic selves. Of course, we wear clothes when appropriate (weed whacking, etc). We are vegetarians and mostly organic (the produce we sell) and trying to learn how to be fully organic. We have 1 position available for our work program.

This position can be for any or all of the skills below:

Carpenter/Landscaper/Maintenance/Farmer: requires basic building skill for decks, framing or finishing. Work assignments could also consist of helping with general facilities maintenance,mowing our lawns, fruit orchard cleaning / harvesting banana groves, grounds keeping and planting of gardens.

We are in a remote area, which gives you the opportunity for time alone.. We highly suggest that you bring a bicycle, helmet and lock. Otherwise hitchhiking is still widely successful here, or the purchase of a vehicle.

Participants in this program provide service and support to our guests by helping with daily operations and maintenance. In return, you receive a yurt for your home away from home. The positions are designed for focused, energetic and responsible people, healthy in body and mind.

Work programs at the Isle of You Hawaii support the day-to-day activities of running this farm and sanctuary. There is always ample work to be done maintaining and operating the facility. Work programs are crucial to our maintenance, garden and farming departments. Many of the positions are physically strenuous. All positions require that participants be of sound physical and mental health. Satisfaction depends on your attitude and intention, and growth comes from carrying out these tasks with a spirit of willing service.

  2. A one week trial period.
  3. Personal medical insurance is highly recommended.
