  • Description

    Description

    We live in the Santa Cruz mountains, about 15 minutes by car from the University in a neighborhood called Bonny Doon. I am a busy physician and have most of my time to orient you to the household and work on projects on Friday, sat, sun. So I prefer a Thursday arrival. I have 1 housemates and 3 other people live on the property in a cabins or RV. This is a sweet quiet spot in the redwoods, and I have a large sunny garden.
    There is fairly limited public transportation but a lot of coming and going with all of the folks who live here.
    I have had very limited interaction with workaway in the last year due to covid restrictions and am still not sure how to make it work, but am open to discussion about this. I am now vaccinated, but no one else on the land has had that opportunity.
