The Villagers

Short term staff (3 weeks) and long term staff (1 year or more) make up a large portion of the village population because Holden is so remote and independently run. Staffers check water quality, haul out garbage, teach seminars, cook community meals, lead worship services, rewire buildings, clean toilets and drive buses. Guests are also given the title of 'villager' as soon as they come up the mountain! The variety within the villagers amazed me.
