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.

How to Donate

Our most pressing current priority:

We are now fund raising for a solar array (12.0 kW) to supply most of our electrical needs. In conjunction with geothermal heating for the guesthouse, this project makes us more energy efficient and responsible.

Cost is estimated at $34,000. We received a grant of $6,200 from RENEW Wisconsin. As of March 16th, we must raise $1,305 more for installation in Spring 2018, probably in April.

Ongoing needs

As we continue making the property inhabitable for retreatants & residents we hope for your skills, know how, and labor in the following areas:
