Working Visitor

Working Visitors take part in the daily life at ARI, immersing themselves in the community experience. They work with ARI members in assigned sections during the day and during Foodlife Work. 

Individuals or groups that come as Working Visitors  stay in the dormitories or the nearby Seminar House.
