Improve your English. Lots of room to explore and have privacy while learning every aspect of food preparation and storage (harvesting, canning, freezing, drying & winter storage).

    Much landscaping opportunity with natural rock and great soil and beautiful plants. This farm is transitioning its growing techniques by bringing many of the larger gardens closer to the house by building/using boxed beds from much recycled materials this season.

  • Help


    Interns, apprentices, helpers, volunteers, & those that help to keep the place going.”

    We depend greatly upon the various working relationships it develops each year through the people that come to stay and learn with us. We have many opportunities for those wishing to explore this lifestyle. We can use help all season long for various tasks on a volunteer basis from April throughout October .

    If you are interested in coming here and feel that you have something to offer while receiving the many benefits of what we have to offer you, please feel free.to contact us with your ideas.

    Remember though...... no former experience required; however, we need self starters with a "do everything" attitude and not afraid of hard work, with a sincere, long-term interest in a more sustainable way of living. You must enjoy nature and common sense is very important. There are often bugs to contend with and we must sometimes work in the rain. :-)
