    Description

    Please read the entire introduction before you contact me. You must be fully vaccinated to visit. A poor man’s paradise and woman’s paradise on the Mendocino coast. Clean air, Clean water, Organic fresh picked Veggies! Artesian well with delicious crystal clear water, Flat land, Raised garden beds, Orchard. Work day is usually 8:00am until 12:00pm 5 days a week. I cook 5 days a week and you are on your own for weekend meals. We grow maritime area veggies such as cabbage, kale , chard, potatoes,squash, lettuce, garlic, onions, leeks, lots of flowers, etc, Area is very nice for beach walking, fishing, sightseeing, nature communing with large redwoods and much more. Speak English and basic Spanish. No children or pets please. Because we are at our store all day Sunday and , stays of 2-4 days Tuesday-Friday only would be best, but I can work out a longer stay with the right individuals. That said, all the helpers have stayed a week or two. In exchange for 3 meals a day and a heated bedroom, I would like 24-25 hours a week or 4-5 hours a day of general help with whatever you are good at. Weekends are days off. Should you wish to stay in your own RV or prepare some meals on your own we can work out a lesser work schedule. We eat mainly organic meals with mostly vegetable based ingredients, but we are not totally vegetarians. We don't eat beef or pork. We like this to be a mutually gratifying situation for all of us. We like to both teach and learn. This is a fragrance free ranch. We are very sensitive to certain chemicals and fragrances. It is essential to have your own transportation as it is many miles to town and public transit is minimal. There is a small cabin only for a short stay and a living area by the shop or space for your own RV or tent.. If you have read all of this so far, please include the word MENDO in the first line of your email to us. Including this word helps us to determine serious inquiries and lets us know you cared enough to read the entire introduction. Mandatory for all volunteers…You have profile photo and sufficient info about any prospective Workawayers. We speak on the phone first, I will check references, You must have a photo ID. I want to repeat….You must have a vehicle when you visit us.
