Work Exchange FAQ

Do have to vegan and christian to come work?

A:

We want people who are open to Jesus because we ask that everyone who works to participate in the group spiritual practices. Although we don’t require you to be vegan, you need to be willing to eat vegan while you are here.   

Are there biting bugs in AR?

A:

Late spring is when the bugs come out, and they stick around until early fall. There are mosquitoes, ticks, and chiggers. We keep the lawn short at the event center, but there may be times when you may need to go into the tall grass or woods. We will provide natural bug repellent.

Why can’t I bring pets and/or children?

A:

Pets sometimes don’t get along with other pets and even though they could be kept on a leash we find it simpler just to say no pets. We understand people need their service animals, so just let us know your situation and we will work with you. We love children and want to make the event center an inviting place for people to bring their children to events, unfortunately,  It can be hard to watch young children and also work. If you have older child(ren) who can work and put in the required hours, then they are welcome.

What is your bathroom situation?

A:

We have an apartment separate from main living/working area that has a bathroom and a shower.

What is the weather like in Arkansas?

 

 

A:

Depends. We have a varied climate in Arkansas. It seems to change each year. Generally, late summer is hot, Fall is cool, Winter is cold, but not too cold (it rarely drops into the single digits), and spring is rainy and warm, but with some cool days. Basically, be prepared for anything.

Where will I be staying?

A:

We have two large yurt like tents which we set up for work exchange partners. You can also bring your own tent if you like. We have plenty of blankets and pillows if you need them.

What does a day look like like at Jesus Vegans?

A:

It varies. Please see the description of an ideal day written by Trish, the co-coordinator of Jesus Vegans.

How long do I have to stay?

A:

We ask for work exchange partners to stay at least two weeks. Though since the application process can take a little while, we prefer it if you stay longer.
