  • Description

    Description

    We are a house of 3 people- Joel (34) Jess (33) and Annie (29), Dorothy the cat (1.2), 11 chickens, and Moose the dog (2).

    Us:
    We are young, energetic, musical, silly, hard working people in the most beautiful spot in the USA. We have 8.5 ha of land with a lovely vineyard that we are trying to start, half an acre of farmland where we grow our own veggies to eat, and many more that we use for fun activities and projects.

    The place:
    We are 2 miles from the town of Hood River where there is everything you would want. Plenty of restaurants, bars, shops, etc. We live right at the base of Post Canyon (some of the best mountain biking in the US) and there is all the outdoor things you could ever want to do.

    The help:
    We are looking for helpers to do tasks in the garden and vineyard, help with planting, weeding, pruning, mowing, harvesting, and home maintenance. There are always projects and things to be done, but much of it will require at least some manual labor. We are also developing sustainable and organic practices and are always in the need for anyone with experience in biodynamic farming, vineyards, permaculture, etc.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are an extroverted, very active group of people that hangs out and relaxes together many nights. We love to show people around, and there are plenty of things to do within 15 minutes from the house. We are a very well travelled group with a diverse background and we love to share what we have to offer.

    As stated before, most of the projects will require at least some manual labor, but there are tons of creative projects as well.
