I am an artist (sculpture, textile, video, installation, and eco-feminist collaborative practices) living and working in a rural area not far from New York City. At my home and studio, I have a residency for queer poets, and on my property I am beginning to plant an arboretum of mostly native plants with the intention of growing materials for use in sculptures.
Help with Eco project
Travelers will live in a safe, queer-friendly rural small town environment where they will meet many artists and poets. They will learn about art and botany.
The help will consist of planting seedlings, sheet mulching, clearing weeds, installing rain collection barrels, and preparing a building on the property that will be rebuilt as a studio and greenhouse.

Accommodation will be in the house, in a small bedroom. The room can accommodate two individuals or a couple.
The Harlem Valley Rail Trail passes through the town (30 miles of paved biking trails). The train to New York City is 3 miles away and costs $19.50 or $26 depending on the time of day (2.5 hours each way). There are lots of art activities at Wassaic Project, which is 3 miles away and accessible by bike. The Appalachian Trail is a short drive away and I would be happy to pick up/drop off Workawayers who would like to hike before or after their stay. There are lots of excellent produce and dairy farms in the area.
