My name is Scott and I am 31 years old. My background is construction, carpentry, and landscaping. I am taking some time off from work to create a sustainable and eco friendly house to live in. It is not there yet but I am well on my way.
My objectives are to reduce the amount of garbage used, grow our meals, compost organic matter, collect water, and use solar energy. And most importantly to reduce each persons carbon footprint.
Right now I am inviting anyone who has special skills or knowledge to help me grow food and reduce the amount of trash in the landfill. Right now I am preparing a garden in spring so that the meals we eat here are fresh. I am building raised garden beds and protecting plants from the animals. I am also planting seeds outdoors and sprouting the seeds indoors. I have lots of knowledge about indoor grows and hydroponics in case you are interested. Or maybe you can teach me something about growing plants:)
My second (side) project would be to begin to organize a bed and breakfast. I have spare bedrooms and they are usually used for friends and other guests. And with this project I have zero experience and it would be nice if someone knows more about setting it up.
If you are interested in short term stay I like to learn languages. So speaking to me in your native language and cooking authentic meals would be a great way for me to get more culture.
Finally you can play with my dog and take walks with her. She is very sweet and never bites. She loves attention so when my days are busy it is nice to have her playing with someone also.
Work days will vary depending on the weather or person visiting. I am not really asking for a certain number of hours just help with what I am doing or take on a project of your own.
This is just a general idea of what is happening. I am constantly working on little projects around the property and we can discuss more about what I am currently doing over messages.

I live on the golden highway. If you like cowboys and the wild west there is a lot of history here. This area is also home to the 1849 gold rush. And down the street in town is the oldest saloon in California.
