We seek to forge meaningful connections and appreciation. As such, we place great importance on bartering as a method of increasing accessibility and subverting the concept of a capitalist transaction. If you wish to barter for part or all of your stay, please take a look below at our current needs. If there is something not listed below that you feel good about offering as a trade, please get in touch to discuss it.
