The location is in a residential neighborhood. It is a quiet area with beautiful views of the mountains in the distance. There is an organic garden, a big, lovely kitchen stocked with gourmet international food. We all take turns cooking and cleaning as part of living together. I am a self taught gourmet chef and love creating exciting dishes at least 2 to 4 times a week. I also like learning from others. There is a variety of projects at our homestead from helping with mechanical projects to terracing the hillside!

There is an organic garden where helpers can learn about planting, irrigation, and composting. Also if they have interest in learning about cooking techniques, they will learn from watching and also be able to practice making meals.
I have an organic garden and a variety of creative projects to collaborate with. 30 minutes drive from San Francisco. I am looking for people that are both skilled in computers, editing videos, websites, etc. and those looking to enjoy the outdoors and help with gardening, tile projects, electrical, etc. See below.

There are a couple of options based on current occupancy, including a private bedroom with closet and a camper. We have hot tub, sauna and beautiful garden to enjoy with regulations.
This location is not to far from various other metro areas by transit or car including; Oakland, Berkeley, San Francisco, But is a little over an hour by public transit. There are local walking trails in the area to go for exercise or to take photographs or to enjoy the view of the San Francisco bay at a distance. Generally we work during the week but on some nights there are activities that you might be invited to such as local art events, meditation or yoga, it varies greatly. It is nice when helpers want to be involved with the activities but they are free to do their own tours and travels in their free time.
