  • Description


    HI travelers, a bit about me, I want to teach people about plants. I have dedicated the past 12 years or so of my life to the study of plants. Their propagation, cultivation, ecological functions, and preparation in the kitchen. The homestead is 10 years old with many hundreds of trees planted, a particular diversity of fruit trees, lots of edible perennials, fruiting vines, wild flowers, herbs, and much more. Basically my best attempt at the recreation of the garden of eden. Loving plants and taking care of them is a must here, of, about, for, cultivation of, study of, plants, plants, plants.

    I have hosted volunteers for many years and work traded on many sites around the world. We thoroughly enjoy the comings and goings of jolly travelers which enrich our lives with new ideas, artistic expressions, and shared meals full of vibrant conversation. We look forward to hosting you as a volunteer!

    Travelers can learn about plants. I have many years experience working with plants, particularly in the style of permaculture. I have extensive knowledge of local plants, their cultivation and preparation in the kitchen. We also cultivate lots of mushrooms on logs, have many fruit trees, ponds, bees, and enjoy very much many ways of making food come from the earth.
