Nomad’s Land

Attalla, US

Nomad’s Land is a Jesus based community that seasonally hosts travelers, while also reaching out to travelers and sharing God’s amazing love at rainbow gatherings and music festivals. We have a variety of spaces, from vintage campers to funky converted school buses, from a Hobbit House to a treehouse to welcome travelers and day-tripper. We’d love to host people for retreats, or community building activities. There are weekly get-togethers, potlucks, art nights as well as a frisbee golf course! All with the heart to love people, and share the life changing love of Jesus.
Throughout your stay on the land, there is time for quiet reflection, hands-on work in the gardens, or outdoor activities near-by (like Cloudland Canyon, Little River Canyon, Noccallula Falls, and Horse Pens 40… just to name a few). We are devoted to providing a place of spiritual retreat, as well, so look through our library, join us for prayer, or jam with us around the fire! Our hope is that daily life at Nomad’s Land can be a blessing to you, and encourage you along your way.

In most seasons on the land, the week begins with community breakfast and meeting for prayer and worship. We share our hearts and plans. As our lives unfold, each individual and family has their own autonomy – some go about chores on the land, others go to their jobs in town or at the shop, while still others tackle a day of school. We often share meals in the evening and hang out around the fire several times a week. We happily host and hang out with the guests that come our way and invite them to share in our lives in whatever way we can. There is time for creative and spiritual pursuits, as well as many fun community activities throughout the week.

We invite guests to participate in work trade, if money is not an easy option. They can offer 2-4 hours a day, either in practical help, lawn maintenance or creative endeavours (our discretion on where we have the most need).

Seasonal volunteers are expected to spend 12 hours (give or take) per week in exchange for room and board. We create a weekly schedule and plan to make this possible. There is a potential for some food/staples being provided, and intermittent community meals. However, volunteers need to have their own money for personal food, needs and gas.

We are presently looking for seasonal volunteers, skilled labourers for renovating a possible future hostel in Asheville, North Carolina and those who would consider being a host family or host team for longer-term. These folks I would need to apply through our email, and be available for Skype/ FaceTime interviews!
