They would learn the values of a family farm lifestyle with lots of oppurtunity for adventure. Meeting other work awayers in the area that have come from anywhere in the world. They will enjoy living close to nature and wildlife away from the busy city life. The Rocky Mountain scenery is second to none.
Volunteering hours could be fairly flexible averageing no more than 4 hours a day. Days off when required. When we are busy with hay, longer hours would be an option with agreed upon wages. Work would include exercising saddle horses, fence building and maintenance, getting winter fire wood, some helping in the garden and greenhouse, some working in the workshop if you are so inclined. Haying starts about July 1st. Help then would be mostly tractor driving if you are comfortable with that.
Accomodation would be in a cabin, 4 m x 8 m. in the trees , by the creek, a ten minute walk from our house and yard. You can use an ATV if you like. No power, but cabin has 12 volt lighting, out house, very quiet and private. We provide good food, you do your own shopping. You make your own meals but we are happy to share some meals as well.
No smoking , . Our lifestyle is pretty relaxed and there is no need for recreational drugs so they are not welcome. There is lots of oppurtunity for adventure and fun. There will be other workawayers in the area. We have a "back country riding club" that do mountain trail rides and improve trails. We have bikes, canoe, atv. Road access to Alpine on both sides of the valley. We have a very good paragliding launch site in the Alpine with very good access.
