With a head full of hair that has all the grace and elegance of over cooked Ramen, this curly haired travel junkie took a walk to the beach one day to take a break from nothing and rest from all the hardcore napping he'd been doing. While digging around looking for fresh seaweed (typical vegan snack) he suddenly realised that what he had just swallowed was not in fact kelp but a plastic grocery bag.
Not deterred by the taste he decided to try again just to be sure. After the longest toilet visit in the history of plumbing he decided someone really should clean up that mess (the beach, not the toilet), and then he took a nap. Dan is so in love with positivity he's said he'll marry it. We've all told him he can't. He always responds he's positive he can. Nobody laughs.
The perennial millennial, Sal truly is a child in a man's body. A self proclaimed "wine connoisseur", he's more likely to have a great recommendation regarding tacos than wine and will probably end up joining you for those tacos. He's great for a laugh, but bad as a gym buddy (don't tell him that, he like to think he's fit).
A person with extraordinary dreams, he'll tell you he was late because the subway broke down, but more likely he overslept. This mexican manchild who runs on coffee, tequila and any food in front of him -yes, even yours- manages to spit out a hundred ideas an hour that help to keep us all young and that's why we love him.

Some people want to own a business, some want to be football players and others want to go to the moon. Not Ema, no sir. This Slovenian’s biggest dream in life is to be a crazy cat lady. Most of us are here for the children or the planet...she’s here for the cats. The good news is they love her back, because she’s always warm.
You thought that pile of clothes in the distance was the bundle for the laundromat? It’s Ema. Under 284 layers of clothing for the cold. However much she tends to resemble a walking popsicle, she is our Clean-up Wizard who, with lovely hobbies like floating on water, watching sunsets and walking barefoot, brings a contagious amount of energy, fun and sense of adventure to our weekly events.
“Life has taught me to go with the flow and not make plans.” This is the life philosophy of our hippie Operations Director. WAIT! Don’t cancel the donation just yet.
Family, travel, adventure and nature is what most defines me. I’m always checking places and day dreaming of visiting them someday, I never know where we’ll be tomorrow. Today is my reality. Life has taught me to just let go and let it flow, otherwise plans will never go out as expected, life always has better plans for me than the ones I think of. My heart is my path to connect with the truth of the universe and my family is my answer to all my questions. Fear is my strength, love is my motivation and nature is my god. One day at a time I create my own reality.
Don't worry, you may think you're seeing the light at the end of the tunnel but it's actually Lydia with her factor 50. You should look for her in the summer, because you won’t see her during the winter as she blends into the snowy background.
She's usually to be found doing crazy yogic stunts on instagram or cooking a beautiful mushroom risotto for her friends (if you haven't tasted her risotto you're not a real friend, that means you Gordon Ramsay). With a spirit and smile as dazzling as her hair, this yogi chef is the light that keeps our days bright.

This amante del capello (“hat lover” [insert italian hand gesture]) loves to read, sketch and take pictures. Leandro is a Master Upcycler (Google it) who likes to break stereotypes by cooking as much international food as he can, using only local produce.
With italian wisdom gained from the overconsumption of pasta and a super endearing OCD-like personality he’s good at giving advice and great at keeping our disorderly heads and impulses in line and on track. He says “sharing is caring” is the key for communities to prosper in the future...so we stole his secret recipes. La condivisione è amore Leandro. [Insert italian hand gesture]
