We are a family of 4 living in Fall City, Washington, which is about 20 miles away from Seattle. It is a beautiful area in the foothills of the Cascade mountains with two rivers running through it. We live on 2 1/2 acres that is about half forested, with a small stream running through it.
Both my husband and I work full time. You can choose to eat dinner with us, or can cook on your own. There will likely be some evenings you are on your own for dinner.
We have four cats: three are very friendly and one keeps to itself.
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help with Eco Projects
Help around the house
This is a beautiful area of the world and we can share the peaceful setting of our house.
We are learning about food forests, gardening, starting seeds and growing vegetables. We are both learning as we go, so are open to your ideas.
I like to cook, so am happy to share recipes.
We are clearing our forest of invasive weeds: mostly blackberry, creeping buttercup, bindweed and herb Robert, and establishing new garden areas and a food forest.
We need help with landscaping, building a fire pit, planning food forest, weeding, mulching, gardening, creating a trail.
Later this spring, we will also need help applying finish to the railings of a deck.
If you're not interested in gardening, we could also use help with cooking, tidying and cleaning.
If you are artistic and have ideas, we would also love your ideas on outdoor art.
