    Hi lovers of the outdoors, of good food, or sustainable food growing! We are looking for some enthusiastic folks who love to work outdoors together. "We" are Babette and Mark.

    If you want to be part of starting up a permaculture farm - come and help us! We have built and are managing a suburban permaculture food forest, 10 miles from downtown Boston; and have also bought 36 acres of field-and woodland in Montague, Western Massachusetts where we are going to start up a diversified permaculture farm.

    We do fun projects like: raise chickens on kitchen compost, worms and leaves from the neighborhood; run the waterfall on our pond with solar; make acorn flour; have mealworms compost styrofoam; try out scything, to name a few. This Fall and Winter we are going to be finishing the building of the farm house in Montague; planting trees; and building shelters for animals who will help us improve the soil and woodlands on the farm.

    This is a great opportunity to be a part of building a regenerative farm from the ground up!

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    We promise you will learn a lot about implementing permaculture in a temperate climate setting. This is an opportunity to learn about setting up a new permaculture garden and farm - all the work that goes into the early stages!

    We do all our cooking from scratch with mostly local ingredients; we minimize our trash by reducing and recycling; and our home is solar/geothermal with some other carbon-reducing features, so this is also an opportunity to learn about green suburban living.

    Also, if you are not from the United States, you will learn about the American culture with us - and if you are shy about English, we speak German, French, and Dutch if necessary.

  • Arbeit


    We would like to ask you to help a total of 16 hours per week; either two full weekdays per week on consecutive days or taking care of animals one hour per day and adding other work hours as mutually agreed.

    We'll be working together - with Babette or, with one of the other work-aways or interns. We will be building, planting, pruning, watering, caring for baby chicks, weeding etcetera. Some of the time we will be at our existing food forest site outside of Boston, and some of the time we will go out to the new farm for two days to get started there.

    Mark and I like to have people around, and we've always enjoyed visitors or the people who stayed and worked with us in the past two years. We don't expect help cleaning up our junk, but we do expect everyone to clean up after themselves, and to help clean up when we've eaten together.

    Our farm is near a small city, Greenfield, and two small villages with nice coffee shops, libraries, and funky little stores, that you can get to on a bike on 20-30 minutes (we can provide a car), or in 5-15 minutes if you have a car. This is a rural area, with lots of trees and fields around, with beautiful places to bike, hike, or go swimming. We are two hours from Boston a vibrant city full of history, culture, and storied universities (Harvard, MIT).

    We have plenty of space for you to make a little desk. If you have Verizon the data connection is really good; we use our phones as hotspots for streaming and zooming. We do not have internet yet!

    We have a very friendly dog, and if you have a friendly dog, they would probably get along! However, we do request only well-behaved and not too big dogs. Unfortunately, our dog thinks cats are great to chase so your cat would not be happy with us.
