Currently in the process of sculpting 140 acres of land in Vermont into a garden of eden. This sanctuary has been a labor of love, and with every little bit of effort and attention, the hopes are to have the grounds shine brighter and brighter. With a Masters in Chinese Medicine, a published author, an extensive athletic history, a yoga junky, and being a world traveler; there is no lack of interesting perspectives up here on the hill.

Existing alongside the rhythms of nature, learning about the local flowers, trees and animals. Learning to cook with the local Vermont fruits and vegetables, as well as being part of the creation of a new art project or two. Learning some english along the way for the foreign workawayers is a bonus. And of course, most importantly, meeting and getting to know some of the local people.
General assistance with the grounds. Gardening, chopping and stacking wood, burning brush, occasional cooking, and help with odd art projects. Lending a hand as well as new ideas toward creating a beautiful environment up here on the hill.

Eating: as much food as asked for. Late afternoon or evening meal is the only planned sit down affair. The kitchen is open to all for snacks and such throughout the day and night.
Sleeping: there is a full futon with plenty of comfy sleeping accessories inside a loft space with a half bath. As well as a pimped out glamping cabin situation adjacent to the main house for those seeking more time communing with nature.
Due to the rural location, there is not a ton of vibrant night life. although there are a few pubs and museums in town (15 min drive), as well as farmers markets, live music, and all the outdoor nature activities you can imagine. Hiking, biking, swimming, rowing, tennis, yoga, etc.
Depending on the weather, season, and current projects on hand, work is 3-4 hours a day on the long end, with plenty of time for reading, walking, music making, fire burning, napping, swimming, socializing, as well as the general enjoyment of nature.
