    **UPDATE: WE ARE CURRENTLY AT CAPACITY FOR HELP AND ARE NOT ABLE TO HOST ANY NEW WORKAWAYERS THIS YEAR. WE WILL NEED HELP IN THE SPRING OF 2021 ONLY THANK YOU! **
    Hello! My partner Troy and I are currently living on our land near Taos, New Mexico and working to complete an earthbag dome house that we designed. We moved here from the Bay area of California, specifically San Francisco and Oakland and have lived in northern New Mexico since September 2019. Our home is about 20 miles north of the town of Taos in the shadows of the beautiful Sangre de Cristo Mountains. The house, when completed will be three connected domes with an attached bathroom. We have nearly completed the bedroom dome and are seeking help building the other two before the start of winter in November. We are also working to dig and construct two partially underground greenhouses to grow food in as well as several small building projects on the land.

    We are excited to host people in this beautiful part of the world that we now call home and to pass on what we have learned about building and living sustainably. We have many goals for our property including growing fruit and vegetables, keeping bees for honey, starting a family and hosting earthbag and permaculture workshops to pass on the knowledge we have accumulated in the process.
    Taos and the surrounding area has plenty to offer as far as hiking, fishing, swimming rafting, sightseeing and skiing in the winter. The Rio Grande is close by as well as many stunning hiking trails including Wheeler Peak, Goose Lake Trail and Red River Nature Trail. We live about 1.75 hours or approx 85 miles from Santa Fe. The RTD bus line can be taken from Santa to Taos and back daily as well as a number of other towns in the surrounding area.

    As our goal is to complete construction on the house by winter, we would like if workawayers can commit to at least a three day stay if not more. It tends to get hot towards the middle of the day so we will plan to work from about 8am-12pm then break for lunch and rest and reconvene to work for another hour or so in the afternoon before breaking for washup and dinner. We will mostly be working on digging the foundations for two greenhouses and building the two unfinished domes on the house. The help will include digging, sifting and some heavy lifting as well as building frames for windows and doors. Little or no experience with earthbag building is required but absolutely appreciated. We are looking for help in September and October currently.

    We have a two person tent to offer as well as a pull out bed in our camper van. There is also plenty of space to camp or park with your own gear if you choose. We love to cook and will provide dinner every evening as well as plenty of fresh drinking water daily. We can provide ingredients for breakfast and lunch to cook over the fire or in the campervan. We have built a private outdoor shower for bathing and an outhouse for use by all. We can provide clean towels but encourage workawayers to bring their own. Our property is about five miles off the highway on a very bumpy road so a 4wd vehicle is required. We can pick you up from Taos if needed.
