  • Description


    I live on a farm on the Central Coast between Monterey and Santa Cruz. My home is close to Elkhorn Slough Marine sanctuary, and many places in nature. My kids are grown and so I have 2 empty bedrooms and plenty places to camp. I have goats, chickens, cats and a dog that are all friendly, and a nice organic garden to sample delicious veggies. Theres a nice walking trail on the property, hot tub, fire pits, and room to explore.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I teach many shamanic workshops out of my home, and I am a healer with many modalities, including Bowen ( therapeutic massage), homeopathy, cranial sacral, nutritional coach, Reiki and movement. I love to teach people how to milk goats, make organic cheeses, make essential oils and cook healthy meals from scratch.

  • Help


    I mostly would ask for some help with maintenance on the property, weeding, fixing fences, taking care of the trees and animal chores. I eventually want to put in a compost toilet and fix up my barn. So lot's to do!

  • Accommodation


    I have 2 spare bedrooms in my home that are available. If you're a camper, there is plenty of spaces for camping also. I live on an organic farm so there are plenty of fresh vegetables, fruit and eggs available. All meals are included. I love to cook organic and healthy meals for dinners. This was we can get to know one another over food and conversation.

    What else ...

    The property is secluded and quiet. I have a spare car you can drive, but a good driving record is necessary.There is a lot to do on the Central Coast, hiking, going to the beach, water sports, like surfing, boating, fishing, whale watching, kayaking and biking. You can use my park pass to go into any State park or beach in the area.There is a bike trail close to my house that takes you all the way to Pacific Grove.

    I live in the country so sometimes service is slow. It is too slow to download big files, but ok for Zoom.

    Plenty of room for Campers. Motorhomes work as long as they are not too tall. There is a tree-line that may scratch the vehicle if too tall.
