    Description

    I live in Salmon, Idaho, located in central Idaho, “The River of No Return” and the home of Sacajawea. My house is located on the Salmon River, a few miles from Lake Williams, at your fingertips are lots of wild game, hot springs, incredible hiking and an easy float trip (or a short drive) from my house to the town of Salmon.

    Salmon has several good restaurants, coffee shops, a bit of nightlife and everything else a traveler could need. I’d welcome someone to help me landscape my front yard and help with the garden. I’m also a Vegan so there are no animal products in my food.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Salmon Idaho is a small rural community, 3 hours away from a large city and a major airport. The area is considered high desert, surrounded by 3 mountain ranges which includes the Continental Divide. We have a wonderful interpretive center called the Sacajawea Center in which you can learn the Native American history of this area and the Lewis & Clark’s expedition through this area.

    I have been able to live around the world and am an experienced sailor and cook. I can share vegan recipes, give directions to the best local trails, mentor aspiring travelers and am open to working collaboratively on designing my yard and garden. My house is a warm retreat and I look forward to spending time on my front and back deck with travelers, learning together and sharing fellowship.

    Help

    My front yard is mostly a blank canvas and I look at this as my 10 yr. project. My second bedroom and downstairs studio are still slightly unfinished. So any kind of general assistance would be very helpful such as finishing touches throughout the house. As I’m mostly interested in getting my front yard completed, primary tasks will be gardening and helping design my garden. Any background in organic gardening or green practices would be very helpful.

    My house is almost completed, pending a few small finishing touches, a person can stay downstairs on a futon or in the guest bedroom upstairs, either way you will sleep with the sound of the river. Both rooms are warm, secure and comfortable.

    Salmon is basically a tourist town where there are class action rapids nearby, great fishing and of course spectacular hunting. We are a 30 minute drive to one of the 10 best hot springs in the USA. There is a farmers market very Saturday and many available restaurant and pubs located in town. A vehicle for your use may be available.
