    Help with building projects, willing to learn new skills, artistic paintings, farm work, brew beer on the Big Island of Hawaii

    Aloha, we are looking for a couple or two workers or a worker that enjoy solitude due to our location. We do not live on a typical farm, but we do have 6 acres that we are developing into sustainable living.

    We are Mike, Cheryl and our small dogs, Griffon & Wrigley living in a remote area of Ocean View, a small community with three grocery stores and gas stations, a hardware store, other shops and restaurants. We share in this adventure to teach and help volunteers learn about our area of the Big Island. We are seeking help with building and caring for gardens, weeding, building, painting, cleaning, painted, and brewing beer once a week. There are other helpful talents needed also.

    ONLY--- For Couples or 2 people traveling together & over 21yrs old ONLY!!

    Our town is not a very touristy, many visitors stop for supplies or eat at our local restaurants when heading to or from Black Sand Beach, South Point, Volcano, Hilo or Kona. The landscape around our home is all lava, some grass. Some say, It looks like we live on the moon.

    ONLY--- For Couples or 2 people traveling together & over 21yrs old ONLY!!
    Our property has an ocean view spanning 25 plus miles of ocean and to infinity straight ahead. To the left, South Point and right is Road to the Sea. Below us is a Pohue bay with a sandy beach accessible by hiking about 3 miles from the end of the road, across a nice path in lava with petroglyphs. The lava flow is from 1300's, so not much vegetation.

    Again, the properties are COMPLETELY off grid and on restricted water supply. We use wind turbines and solar to supply our electric. Computers, iPad, phone devices are rechargeable. Washer and WIFI provided, the dryer is the wind on the close line.

    Kaʻū is one of the six original districts of Hawaii on the island. It includes the areas of South Point (Ka Lae), Hawaiian Ocean View Estates (HOVE), Hawaiian Ocean View Ranchos (HOVR), now together known as Ocean View. The district contains much of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, including the volcanoes Kīlauea and Mauna Loa, and Punaluʻu Black Sand Beach, Papakōlea (Green Sand) Beach and Kamilo Beach.To the east of Kaʻū is the Puna District, and to the west is the South Kona District. Sugar cane was a large crop until 1996. Now coffee is growing in importance, with the Kaʻū Coffee Festival held in Pāhala. The southernmost point of the US is at Ka Lae Point in the Kaʻū District.

    Help

    Current Projects: Volunteers would help with painting, gardening, concrete work, weeding, electric, plumbing, property maintenance and building, small construction projects, moving lava rocks, and learning about being off grid by maintaining batteries, solar panels, & wind turbines, and DC lighting. Also learning the science of brewing beer. Sometimes there are community projects (like beach clean up) we get involved in, it's a great way to help and meet others in the neighborhood.

    Aquaponics: Where fish and vegetable plants are grown together in a controlled environment in our shade house. We are in the beginning stages of developing our own system for vegetables and fruit. Volunteers would learn how the system works, help move plants, plant new ones and learn what plants grow in a media or water only.

    Wind & Solar Powered: All electric power is generated by solar panels and wind turbines and stored in a bank of batteries. Volunteers would learn how the system works, test the batteries for efficiency, help keep the batteries clean and refresh the water in the batteries.

    Artistry: There are many surfaces for you to paint and create your next masterpiece. We love when workaways leave their personal touch on a wall, floor, doors, and ceilings.

    Brewing Beer Project : We make our beer in a very traditional "Homebrew" style, paying more attention to flavor than appearance. It's also important to note that the project is "off grid".. We have a small, 10 gallon (maximum), gravity driven system with the ability to do step-mash's and decoctions. Beer is enjoyed by us and friends it’s not for sale.

    Griffon & Wrigley: Are you a dog lover?? Our dogs Griffon & Wrigley enjoys visitors. We also rely on our volunteers to watch the boys on some occasions when we need to go to town. Griffon is blind and suffers from separation anxiety. Usually, right after we leave Griffon alone, cuddling with G is what he enjoys and knowing you not leaving him also. Wrigley enjoys walks and loves to chase a ball. Griffon likes to roam around the yard but must be watched, as he is blind and walks over the side of the hill if not watched. The boys sleep with us and go everywhere we go unless someone can stay home and watch them.

    Remote living: Couple or two volunteers that enjoy solitude due to our location being very remote. This would best suit volunteers who like being in a "remote area" of the Big Island. We live in Ocean View 1.5 hours from the big towns of Hilo and Kona. We live 2 miles down an incline from 3 grocery stores and gas stations, restaurants, a swap meet every Saturday and 25 minutes from South Point. Closes town is Naalehu. Home to many restaurants and Punalu`u Bake Shop. We are also located an hour from the National Volcano Park. Volunteers can use the Heleon bus to go to Hilo, Kona or circle the island, we can give you a lift up the hill to catch the bus and pick you up on your return.

    Cooking: We enjoy cooking but also enjoy when volunteers come in and take over our kitchen once a week to share your style of food with us. Help us cook meals and teaching us new ways to cook and new foods. We use the stove, oven, grill and Pit Boss (similar to a green egg). Soon we will have a pizza oven we made ready to make pizzas, breads, and other meals. When working with Cheryl & Mike, a meal is provided that day by Cheryl & Mike.

    Sharing: We encourage volunteers to bring their talents and share with us. In the past our place has been host to artist, musicians, landscapers, construction engineers, amateur chief and around the world travelers.

    • We will need references from previous workaway hosts or employers.

    Workaways will stay in our Workaway cabin. The private room has a bathroom and shower. A deck attached to the room has a kitchen equipped with stove top, refrigerator, sink & cooking tools. Water source from rain and from hauled water so we encourage everyone to restrict the water usage.
    The entire property is off grid, electric generated by solar and wind. So NO blow dryers, curling irons, hair straighteners, microwave, toaster oven, etc. When working with Cheryl & Mike, a meal is provided that day by Cheryl & Mike.
