✔️ About us
Dandelion Community is a Christian community where we strive to live a simple, deep-rooted, and pure life. People of various ages live together, eat together, work together, and worship together. We have a large chicken farm and a garden that is used for education and feeding our community. We are trying to maintain a safe environment because children attending Dandelion School live in the same precincts. Work can be flexible depending on the needs of the community. We provide a variety of accommodations at the community including 3 meals a day and a separate room and bathroom. Our campus also has variety of facilities including a main hall, a cafe, a bakery, a library, and an alternative technology center. In addition to Koreans, there are a few foreigners also living here.
