    A big hello to potential Workawayers!

    What we are doing now : Just got home from a couple weeks of traveling to weeds that are 7 feet tall. Weeding and harvesting are consuming all our time! Also in a continuous process of getting rid of grass and replacing it with low ground cover perennials. The older chickens are molting, the youngest chicks are growing and they are loving the weather, the bugs and the constant replenishing of greens.

    Our family has hosted for about 15 years as our children grew. We are finishing up much work and doing upkeep on our 150 year old house. We still have outside stone masonry work, painting, tiling, a construction project or two along with permaculture landscaping and seasonal gardens and greenhouses. You are most welcome to lend a hand to all of these projects. No particular skills are required, except for a sense of humor and a willingness to be open to experiences; We'll teach you the rest if need be. We barter with some Amish families, so if you are interested, you can get a glimpse into their world as well. We provide all the food and we will feed you well. If you want to help with the cooking and prep work, that would be great. We are whole food plant based vegans.

    We have 2 dogs who live for fetch and loving pets (border collie mixes), 3 cats who entertain themselves, but are always looking for a lap to sleep on, 8 chickens and 23 growing chicks (who will be going outside with the rest of the flock come July).

    We love camping, kayaking, music, drive in movies, hiking, painting, lots of cooking and eating, bonfires, bike riding, and star gazing. We love cooking and creating healthy, delicious food. We're interested in meeting new people and learning different ways of being, thinking, and viewing the world. We are all vaccinated and boosted and healthy and looking forward to getting back to normal, social living.

    We have a bedroom or two for guests that can accommodate a couple people . We also have a camper that has seen better days, but is a fine place to sleep. We prefer stays of at least a week so we can get to know each other. We most often have longer term stays, which are fine too.

    You're treated like family when you come here. Plenty of time with people, plenty of solitary time if needed too.

    There is an Amtrak station and a Greyhound bus stop about a 1/2 hour away from us and we would be more than happy to pick you up to get you here. Rural Wisconsin does not have a lot of transportation options.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    Our talents and interests vary widely. We have an artist, a computer geek, an avian expert, a writer, an entrepreneur and a naturalist/jack of all trades in the family. A few of us play/are learning ukulele. Some of us are writing books. We cook for vegans using whole foods, avoiding sugars, oils and anything processed. Our kids are coming and going from college, life and travel, so never sure how many will be around at any given time.

    We need help finishing the remodeling of our house and gardening/land management. We have mad building skills, and we have rebuilt most of our house and redesigned most of our land, but there is always more to do. But with your help, we hope to get this done while enjoying life and making new friends throughout our country and the world. By the way, you will rarely work alone, as everyone pitches in around here.

    Interested in learning Spanish. We know some basics, but have no chance to practice, so we lose it quickly

    We have a couple extra bedrooms in our home that will be all yours. Right outside of it is a common area. There are 2 bathrooms, a living room, dining room, a large kitchen, and 2 decks. There is a camper with a queen bed and possibly a couple single beds.

    We are located in a naturally beautiful area of our country with woods, lakes, cliffs, lots and lots of nature, and four distinct seasons. We regularly drive to larger cities about 1 1/2 to 2 hours away, sometimes to Chicago. We are close to many gorgeous state parks and recreation areas. We are more than happy to drive and explore the area with you.
