January and February we will be working on finishing a building, gardening in the greenhouse, and caring for our chickens.
June-August we will be working on an earthen floor, our greenhouse, building a solar hot water heater, and the gardens. We have two people signed up to come in that time so it could be a fun group experience.
AT HOME: We have an extra rustic home on our property with a wood stove and a composting toilet. We will supply you with bulk foods, eggs from our chickens, meat from our pigs. We will also regularly share meals.
