Come live on our Ranch on the Big Island of Hawaii!
Looking for fun, healthy, and creative individuals who will fit well with the free-spirit vibe of the property. My beautiful (but slightly overgrown) small ranch in the Orchildland area of Puna, is currently home to chickens, goats, and Sr. Fabuloso (World's Coolest Cat). It's a small homesteading property that features a main house, Ohana house (Internship Cabin), Yoga Studio/Gym, Detached Bathroom, and a small woodworking space.
Plenty of opportunity for travelers to live in their own house while they get involved in local culture such as food, volcanoes national park, dance, beach life, yoga, ceremony, surfing, and music. I live alone, and could use a little help with basic home and garden projects.
My garden projects are pretty simple at the moment. Mostly you will be asked to clear space for an organic garden, help me build outdoor steps and create a nice space for hammocks, clear brush, or build a flagpole. Should be pretty fun work. I am especially interested in candidates with carpentry skills as I am considering building an open air shelter to act as an outdoor gym/movie screen.
I am a 38 year old male that works as a counseling psychologist. I live alone, but enjoy hosting and occasionally the girlfriend stops by.
This experience is perfect for the traveler who is looking to spend some time in the morning helping on the land in exchange for accommodation, beauty, food, and friendship. Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Puna is a thriving and unique cultural experience, that has a feel somewhat like the parking lot of a Grateful Dead concert. Here on the windward side (eastern side) of the island there are many yoga retreats, beaches, and places for dance and visual arts. Local craftsmen offer opportunities to get involved in their projects and teachers can help refine music, carpentry, painting/visual art, dance, surfing, yoga, and all other types of skills. There is something for everyone out here in our warm and accepting community. We are close enough to easily hike out in Volcanoes National Park, head to Uncle Robert's Farmer's Market, head to Kahena or Issac Hale beach, check out the new warm ponds, or take day trips out to black sand or green sand beaches, over to Kona or up to Hawi. The protectors currently on Mauna Kea offer instruction about Native Hawaiian history as well as perform regular Hawaiian rituals such as Hula.
I am asking for 22hr/week of Aloha Aina (service to the land). This will include clearing brush/ground cover and converting space into gardening space. There are beautification projects that involve spreading gravel, yard maintenance, planting trees/flowers, trimming and caring for bamboo. If you're interested I'm happy to collaborate about helping on art projects together (which would typically be constructed on your own time). You may also be asked to help with simple animal care projects such as changing hay for the chickens or feeding the goats. Woodworking/building skills are a plus. I could use some help, building steps, pouring cement, and other simple projects are all scheduled for the property.
You will live in your own guest house! This space has 2 queen size beds and can accommodate up to 4 people. The space is small but private, you sleep in a loft-style bed on a queen size mattress, and have your own closet and seating area. Plenty of hot water and electricity. You have a very nice private detached bathroom to use with a beautiful tub and indoor/outdoor shower. There is no wifi, but you may get online by using a 'hotspot' on your phone. You will have a hot plate, fridge, and silverware for cooking and eating.
I will provide a pantry capable of accommodating 2 meals a day. Included will be fruits, some vegetables, beans, noodles, oatmeal, canned chicken, and lentils. We can discuss the purchase of other products that you would like to eat while you stay. I am generally happy to accommodate anyone who is helping maintain the property.
The ranch is in the ideal spot for staying on the East Side of the island. I am 20 min. from Hilo, 20 minutes from Uncle Roberts and the Puna coastline, and just a quick drive to sites like, Shipman's beach, the Keaau Shopping Center, and Pahoa.
Transportation will be an issue for anyone coming to the Big Island. Having a car is or other access to transportation will be important if you plan to stay at the ranch. You are welcome to discuss transportation options with me before your arrival, but understand that I will not be able to provide rides to my workaway guests.
