Art Monastery Vermont needs hardworking Artmonks to join our summer community.

Worktraders are invited to participate in the community’s daily meditation and movement practices, weekly ceremonies and rituals, and all group meals. Depending on the AMP programming calendar during your stay, there may be opportunities to participate in the creative collaborations with other Artmonks, and solo creative practice is always encouraged, but between shared meals, spiritual practice, and worktrade the days can already feel quite full…

Worktrade is available in the areas of kitchen/food-systems, garden/landscaping, carpentry/renovation, sign-making, admin, graphic design, web design and video editing.


1-4 weeks


Sleep in a tent or in a shared room, when available


5 hours labor per day, five and a half days per week, and $70 per week (If this cash payment is a hardship for you, please let us know.)

Please email with the following:

  • dates of availability, and desired duration of stay
