Funding Needs, Skilled & Unskilled Labor

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.
