Couple in early fifties on 3/4 acre property with ornamental gardens and herb and vegetable beds. Pat works part-time as a Horticulturalist and Adam works full-time in Manufacturing. We grow organically and on a small scale for household use. We are trying to get house and gardens in order and would welcome and appreciate workawayers help to keep things humming along.
Our household includes two cats.
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
Help with Computers / internet
Pat needs help with garden tasks and odd jobs around the house and yard. Various things that I could use help with are cleaning, composting, painting, etc. Looking to have volunteers for one-week stays, with possible extensions. Four to five hours a day, four to five days a week. Individual or couple.
Can provide tent space with twin air mattresses, indoor kitchen and bath/shower facilities, use of kitchen, dining room and fridge space, wifi-internet access, parking. Can provide sheltered or indoor bed accommodation in inclement weather or if you prefer and don't mind that the house is very small. Will provide food but could use some help with shared cooking. We usually eat dinner late due to work schedules, but workawayers are welcome to eat at their regular schedule. We are open to any eating plans that you follow (vegan, veg., omnivore, etc.). No smoking/drugs.
Our home is located several miles from Ithaca, in Upstate New York in the beautiful Finger Lakes Region. We are one block from the public transport bus to Ithaca. There is a convenience store within walking distance. Lovely rural area for bicycling, hiking, and touring nearby waterfalls, yet only a ten minute drive to Cornell University and other cultural spots in Ithaca. Small airport and bus terminal in Ithaca. Locally, there are antique shops, the renowned Ithaca Farmer's Market, excellent libraries, restaurants, shops, etc. We will do our best to help orient workawayers and share our community, home, and interests with them.
