    Description

    We are so over the Moon to be able to welcome people from around the world to our new homestead! We are located in Unity, Maine, a place of beautiful farmland and woods near the ocean. We are a little family of 3. Our son, Cedar, is 2. We are looking for help with many things including gardening, building, electrical and plumbing, compost systems - read below! We can't wait to talk with you :)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Animals - you could learn to milk goats, help with chickens and maybe even a cow! We plan to have yoga and healing events on the property in our yurt. You can speak English with us! Learn about plants. Montana likes to play the guitar. Musicians are VERY welcome. It is gorgeous in the summer in Maine - tons of hiking, swimming, farming. It's cold and snowy in winter in Maine and music is a nice way to pass the time. Libraries in Maine are generally wonderful.

    Our town and area is AMAZING - there are so many inspired people doing amazing things - healers, farmers, artists...There is a world famous organic fair in our town every year. There is an Amish community here and they travel on the roads with horse and buggies. MOFGA (the Maine organic farmers and growers association) is here with lots of amazing classes. Belfast, such a cool little city is 25 minutes away. Rockland and Camden are about an hour away and we will go to Rockland once a week if you want to come. The ocean is 25 minutes away! There is hiking and tons of amazing events every night of the week.

    Accommodation

    You would be in a cabin built by the Amish or our super cool vintage camper or yurt. It is insulated and at this point has two little bunk rooms and then a main living room. We are considering updates to it and maybe you could help with that. Meals can be had at our house a hundred feet away. Showers can be as well. You would use an outhouse or bucket toilet in the cabin (we do not have waste water disposal or toilets on the property.) Don't worry, it's not really weird - it's cool and sustainable!

    It would be a great space for a couple or friends!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We would ask for about 5 hours a day if you want to have 3 meals. Otherwise, we're flexible. Oh! We use mostly organic and local ingredients. Again, we love yummy food. We are eating mostly vegetarian these days.

This would be your cabin!! :)
This is the inside of your cabin. Lots of sleeping space. This is only one of the sleeping spaces. You'll stay cozy in the snow. We will be renovating the cabin to be more modern and cool at some point ;)
