    Right now we are looking for help with the Apple harvest and processing from September all through October, expanding our newly planted food forest and winterizing.
    We also have some building projects here and there and harvesting from the vegetable garden.
    It would be great to have a couple or two close friends to keep each other company and share the bus.

    Trade is 25 hours/week for accommodation with meals, or 15 hours/week for accommodation only.
    Most of the tasks are quite physical, so please be prepared to use your muscles!
    No dogs please.
