    Description

    The earliest we could start is August 1, 2021...

    We have a tropical fruit orchard on the beautiful North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. We practice “ Back to Eden” organic farming method. We have many varieties of tropical fruits..we need help with organic farming, carpentry, grafting, air layering, propagating fruit trees; weedwhacking, building and maintaining organic vegetable garden, building fences, irrigation, etc...so many things to do!

    The studio is large and clean. It has a freezer, large refrigerator, washer, dryer, full bathroom with shower.

    This would be a great place for individuals who love to surf or want to learn surfing...because it is the surfing Capitol of the world. In summertime there is amazing snorkeling, swimming..even swimming with dolphins in Waimea Bay.

    We are not a commercial farm so we dot not pay wages.

    As per Workaway guidelines, we will expect 5 hours of work per day 5 days/week. Transportation will be your responsibility but you can hitch a ride with us when we go places and can drop you off...or you can hang out with us when we go do fun stuff such as surfing and snorkeling.

    Our expectations include but are not limited to the following:
    1. get up early and ready to work by 6:30am.
    2. clean up after yourselves, maintain good order of the studio, and clean up the studio nicely before your departure.
    3. projects include but not limited to: organic farming, carpentry, grafting, air layering, propagating fruit trees; weedwhacking, building and maintaining organic vegetable garden, building fences, irrigation, etc..
    4. Quietness and peacefulness is important to our family.
