dedicated to a peaceful & just society
grounded in contemplative & spiritual practice
Dana from Santikaro's retreats and teaching is our primary source of income. So far, it has been sufficient for living & operating expenses, as well as financing the mortgage taken out to purchase the 70 acres on which Liberation Park lives.
Building projects -- such as caretaker's cottage, water & plumbing, septic system, and driveways -- have been financed as funds came in. The first hermitage was financed with special help from Tender Shoot of Joy. The Guest House project, finished in 2017, required a fund raising campaign.
We are now fund raising for a solar array (10.5 kW) to supply most of our electrical needs. Cost will be $31,000. We have saved $15,000 (as of December 29th) and received a grant of $6,200 from RENEW Wisconsin. We must raise $10,000 in additional funds for installation in Spring 2018
As we continue making the property inhabitable for retreatants & residents we hope for your skills & labor in the following areas:
- environmental restoration
- carpentry (the more skilled the better)
- alternative building techniques
- orchard restoration
- grounds clean up and maintenance
- alternative energy systems
