If you put food in the larger refrigerator in the Wellness Center, please mark it with your name.

Please place your paper and rinsed recycling in the labeled containers accordingly in the garage.

Heating and Cooling

Filtered water is available for guests in the Wellness center. We encourage guests to bring a reusable water bottle to refill. There is no running water in the hermitages; guests will find a water jug in their space for brushing teeth, doing dishes, and washing hands.
Each hermitage bathroom is equipped with a Sun-Mar Composting Toilet. It uses peat moss, wood chips, and natural microbes to break down human waste and toilet paper into a product that can then be returned to the Earth safely.
There is no wifi in the hermitages; wifi is available in the Wellness Center.
