  • Description

    Description

    We have a small homestead in the Hudson Valley of New York a mile outside the village of Tivoli. We are could be looking for garden help, work clearing trails, building an off grid cabin, work in John's silversmithing studio. We are not sure what this spring summer will bring. We are both artist and have grown children. We have built several houses including an adobe home in New Mexico. We are well versed in natural building as well as conventional building. Housing varies from a room in the house to camping. We eat local food as often as possible including meat. Please write and tell me a little bit about yourself and what appeals to you about our listing.
    Work time can vary but no more then 4 hours 5 days a week. In the past I have taken workaway volunteers to some of the Hudson Valley's most incredible natural wonders as well as to private homes with incredible architecture and or gardens, guest interest really dictate where we explore. Of course if you are a private person and want to explore on your own that works to. We live in a rural area and you can walk to town where there is a pub , several restaurants a general store and a great bookstore.

    Please do not write cut and paste letters, they will not be answered. Let us know why you would like to come stay with us.
