Come to work or to rest - you are welcome!
In 2022, Good Courage will offer two types of farmstays: workstays and retreats. Guests of the farm are accommodated in our comfortable Well House (sleeps 2) or in our vintage camper (sleeps 1) and also have use of our bath house and our summer kitchen. Both workstays and retreats include breakfast; other meals are self-catered, with staples provided.
Workstays offer guests an opportunity to join farm staff and other volunteers in fieldwork. Accommodations and breakfast are provided in exchange for 4 hours of labor per overnight, per person. There are all types of useful work to do on the farm, though the most common needs are weeding, mulching and harvesting. If fieldwork isn't suitable for your body, no worries - we also have endless organizing tasks and non-strenuous work like stamping bags or stuffing envelopes.
Retreats are self-organized days of pure rest and renewal on the farm. Retreat guests are invited to make a suggested donation to the ministry on a sliding scale (usually $20 to $60 per night). Made-to-order, farm-fresh breakfast is brought to your door. Enjoy the farm as you choose!
**It is Good Courage farm's privilege to offer two-night retreats at no charge to community organizers and clergy in need of a sabbath rest. We extend an especially warm welcome to BIPOC and LGBTQ+ leaders who have been at the front lines of our nation's social crises, advocating for justice and peace. We give thanks to the generous supporters who allow us to offer this hospitality.
