    It is winter and we have projects.But you must be prepared to work outdoors. This means you must have some sturdy footwear That can get dirty, a raincoat, gloves and layers for cold weather.The outdoor tasks that you will be working on would be moving and splitting and stacking wood. Cutting and burning brush and caring for chickens. Outdoors is a composting toilet. We will be meeting outdoors and working outdoors. Winter
    Housing is in a room in the basement of the house with a walkout. You will still use the composting toilet outside in the outbuilding but there is a sink by your room with hot and cold water. Your room will stay about 60° plus or minus a few degrees.

    I have an openings for a private rooms for yourself or you and a friend. Seasonal Outdoor shower , sinks. Chores for learning new skills are preparing bricks for walkways and the hoop house, splitting wood stacking wood, cutting brush, Building and setting up the hives, chicken care, Finishing the hoop house beds. gardening, lawn mowing, preparing areas for camping in the woods,Pulling nails out of repurposed wood that we will be using in the finishing of the walls in the tiny kitchen. And the last skill that you could learn is how to prune and mulch the raspberries. I’m sure there is much more but that gives you an inkling of what you could choose for your learning experiences. All useful skills for living a simple life and living sustainably.

    I have Rustic rooms with beds for one person or two people traveling together. Even a yurt. Everything else is outdoors. These spaces are not heated. There are places that have woodstoves but you need to maintain them and collect wood. In the winter I have a private room with a double bed. The temperature in this room stays around 60°. When it is below freezing there is a sink next to this room but you still need to use the composting toilet in an outdoor building. Also you have to be content with your own company.
    Open for volunteers but plan on social distancing, sanitizing (plan on cleaning your area before you leave) and wearing a mask when necessary ( bring one) Also request that workawayers are not commingling with outside persons ( time off can be enjoyed with outdoor activities like hiking).
    The homestead will be our platform for meeting and learning and working. And the pond for swimming. The Food is mostly vegan, plenty of whole grains, pasta, fruits and vegetables, tea, water and eggs .You will be making your own meals and occasionally I will have a home-cooked meal to share with you. We also have basic canned foods. There is a 9 o’clock quiet time and a request to play personal music using earbuds, also no drugs alcohol or smoking.

    My small rural solar homestead is in the beautiful Monadnock region of New Hampshire. I have an extensive garden of herbs, flowers and vegetables, chickens, and a wood lot. You can participate in day to day living of a simple life. I have a list of helping experiences and you can choose what you would like to do, or what you would like to learn. You must be self motivated because you’ll often be helping out on your own. Three hours of help a day will leave plenty of time for your own hobby or adventuring.

    What to bring, your ear plugs and buds if you are sensitive to noise or want to listen to audio , a water bottle, your favorite foods if you can’t live without them, Stout shoes that are good for getting dirty , wet and working in, work gloves and weather appropriate clothing. It gets cold here at night. Also if you are coming between the middle of May in the middle of June we have black flies. A head net Might be desirable to bring with you.
    You Will have to figure out you’re own transportation. There is no easy public transportation to This part of New Hampshire.
