2010 Archive

2010 was the 1st year of Work Hard Stay Hard and my oh my was it a great suc­cess. We raised over $16,000 thanks to all of you. We thought you would be inter­ested to know where your kind dona­tions went to. Here are some of the high­lights but this is by far not a com­plete list:

  • A dri­ving bridge to the back buildings
  • A tri­pod shit­ter near the yucca field
  • A new grey­wa­ter sys­tem for the kitchen and princess shitter
  • Elec­tric­ity for the back barn
  • Solar show­ers with a water tower
  • So much tree clearing
  • Health care with acupunc­ture, herb phar­macy, and a pro­to­col for emer­gen­cies dur­ing large gath­er­ings was created
  • New web­site and photo archive
  • Spree’s room got a com­plete overhaul
  • A com­plete trash clean up of the land
  • So many gar­den projects includ­ing a lovely rose trellis
  • 3 amaz­ing meals a day and snacks
  • We spent over $11,000 of our bud­get at local busi­nesses in Smithville, TN
  • Par­ties!!

Here’s a link to fab­u­lous pho­tos from the 2010 gath­er­ing!

and an update posted dur­ing the 2010 gath­er­ing with pic­tures of many of the work crews:

Here it is! 2010 WHSH in all its glory.

Hello Friends!  We are hav­ing a ter­ri­bly excit­ing week here at IDA, and for those of you tun­ing in via the web, we would all like to extend a hot and sweaty hello to you all!  We wish you were here.

A lot is hap­pen­ing here at IDA this week and we can’t express enough how sat­is­fy­ing and inspir­ing it is to walk the paths and see every­one work­ing together to improve the land and it’s facil­i­ties for all of our col­lec­tive use.  Right now, as I type, years of VHS footage found in a front house office clean-out is get­ting dig­i­tized by Lex at the NEW lap­top bar, pho­tographs from the past 17 years are being scanned and archived by Killer on IDA’s new hard­drive, on their new desk­top PC and Eli is clean­ing and dust­ing all the book­shelves.  The kitchen steps are being rebuilt by Sofi and Bea, Sandy’s tem­peh is roast­ing in the kitchen, Matilda’s deliv­er­ing fresh eggs to the cel­lar and a whole slew of peo­ple are busy busy busy all around!

Teo went out into the field this morn­ing with a cam­era and a note­book to check on all the crews and see what they would like to report to the out­side world.


Elec­trix Crew has installed func­tional elec­tri­cal ser­vice to the back barn this week.  “Two hots, a neu­tral and a ground.”

The Child­care Crew has been busy baby wran­glin’, and who bet­ter to trust your lit­tle bun­dles of joy with than Regrette?

The Health Care crew has a vari­ety of things to cure what ails you; from herbal prepa­ra­tions, a licensed nurse prac­ti­tioner, acupunc­tur­ists and mas­sage therapists.

Trash Crew, which has been renamed as Recla­ma­tion Crew, has been busy sort­ing through var­i­ous “junk”, sell­ing it and mak­ing us a bunch of money!  And, with that money, they are build­ing a new trash shed and installing new dump­sters for trash and recycling.

And really, the food has been beyond everyone’s wildest expec­ta­tions!  Every­one here was deliv­ered bag lunches yes­ter­day which included a home­made dulce de leche brownie.  Holy crap!

A new field over the bridge has been cleared by the Yucca Field and a brand spankin’ new “Two Per­son Rock ‘N’ Roll Shit­ter” is being built!

In addi­tion to the new shit­ter, a three per­son, PRIVATE, solar shower is being built.

The bridge to the Yucca Field has been widened and a sturdy handrail installed!

And so much more is hap­pen­ing, it’s really unbe­liev­able.  The office crew has been busy doc­u­ment­ing the entire event and you can check out more pho­tos as they arrive on our Flickr page!

We wish you were here!
