  • Description


    Our 6 acre property is nestled in the foothills of the North Cascade mountains. The nearest "town" is a village of about 800 people and is located 9 miles away and offers county bus transportation. About 45 minutes away from the farm, there is a bus/train station. We are about equal distance between Seattle and Vancouver BC. The ferry to the San Juan Islands is about an hour drive from the farm. We think our place is pretty ideally situated for sight seeing, and for those who like to hike or be in the wilderness, our mountains draw people from all over the world each year.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We love interacting with the international community, and have lived in various parts of the world. Come with a growth mindset and let's learn from each other. Learning language and practicing correct pronunciation are skills we like to support, but we also love the outdoors and the amazing hikes our area has to offer.

  • Help


    We need your help with various projects from general maintenance of fields and fences, to painting, and improving infrastructure like fencing and gates, and building maintenance. We heed help landscaping and creating walking paths. Cutting and stacking firewood, mowing lawns, harvesting blueberries, and whatever else comes up.

  • Accommodation


    Short-term volunteers (1-2 weeks) will stay in two of the guest rooms, share the kitchen and bathroom with owner. If there are more than two volunteers they will share a room. However, we also have tents available for those who would rather sleep outdoors, and a RV hook up is also available.

    We stock with an inventory of dry goods including various beans/pulses/legumes, grains, flour, pasta, herbs and seasonings, oils, cereals, milk, and a variety of items like coffee, and chocolate. Visitors take turns cooking meals on a rotation schedule with others, unless we have a cook on the team that takes the full responsibility. There is cell phone reception on the farm although it can be spotty, but we offer wifi. However, this should be limited to things like email and itinerary planning. There is good high speed wifi available in town at the local library for downloads, video etc.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Volunteers are free to enjoy the many outdoor and cultural attractions of the area when not helping out on the farm. They are also welcome to study, explore the surrounding countryside, or just relax and enjoy the peace and quiet.

    There is no smoking, drug use, or partying on the property. However, the farm is just 10 minutes (3 miles) from a rural town where there are some restaurants and pubs, shopping and movies. Because this is a rural property, volunteers will need their own transportation unless they are content to be dependent on us for rides into town.
