  • Description


    still very interested in couples - the dynamic works better for us (and probably them) but we would be interested in talented singles too. what we need now are people that can

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️yard and garden maintenance
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️keep straw bale garden this year for the veggies going
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️begin/finish painting and other handyman projects.
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️small level pallet construction

    Of course, we have a list of other projects if you have certain skills (car maintenance, electric, plumbing, finishing wood work, chopping firewood for next year).

    You will need work gloves and work clothes (altho you can also get these locally for pretty cheap at our thrift store). Have seen mosquitos so you might need repellant - local herbal brand is great - skeeter beater and available here. And Repel if you want harsh chemicals.

    IMPORTANT - you will need to be able to get here, and if you do not have transportation while you are here, be comfortable hitchhiking around - yes it is safe, we do it on occasion. We of course will take you on outings with us - store, beach, museums, meditation, working out, hiking etc. Looking forward to meeting our next workawayers!! safe travels!

    We are a couple on 8.4 acres of land in the Outer Banks of North Carolina...doing organic gardening, community volunteering and working with sea turtles thru N.E.S.T. we are also active in the aaartist and musician groups locally. Sometimes we interact with both the sport fishing and surf fishing folks too. There is always something going on with us. We have a number of projects that we would love to get done, and would be happy to trade room and board for help. WE ARE REMOTE and likely you will need a car if you come stay with us. THERE IS NO LOCAL PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION... We also have an indoor cat.
