    Description

    I am a semi-retired eco-artist/sculptor who has been following the vision of manifesting a regenerative homestead for most, if not all of my life..slowly but surely. I have lived and worked on the same 5 acre coastal property for 38 years in Westport, California

    My vision is to establish an edible landscape on the property. At the same time, i live mostly alone now and with the present needs to work to cover the bills, construction and building maintenance, i have failed to have enough time to even nurture my vegetable garden over the last couple of years.

    Friends keep encouraging me to sign up for workaway...so finally, here it is.

    If you are someone who is at peace with your self and others, know how to live in community (that is being open to the concept of thinking in terms of the concept that the good of the self is truly best served by thinking and acting upon the good of the whole community of life, loves physical works (and has the skills for same), enjoys mostly organic vegan food and living within a truly nourishing fold in the fabric of mother Gaia, then there is a good possibility that you would like it here.
