    Description

    Hello guys! We are an inspired group of individuals who are working on a community ranch project about an hour outside of LA. The game plan is to build up the ranch to become an awesome space where we can all have room to work on our dream projects or interests (such as van conversions, archery, working remotely, pottery, etc.), and have access to tools, learn new skills, share our knowledge with each other, hang out with other fun people and just enjoy the simple pleasures of life on a ranch. We are also working on becoming a hub for vanlifers and campers!

    We are specifically looking for workers who are friendly, upbeat, and enjoy having a good time!


    The property has a main house, a community kitchen, a pool, beautiful hiking trails, gorgeous views, goats, cats (with lots of cute little kittens!), and many dogs. One of our more recent projects was finishing up the outside Bar which has a pool table, foosball, etc. We're also assembling cabins, working on our music studio, cleaning up the land for summer, and more. This space is a work in progress, and there is still lots to do! We'd love to have your help and company!

    2 Weeks Minimum.
