  • Description


    I have a projects on St Thomas for workawayers to participate in.

    -Landscaping and natural environment maintenance / over 1 acre of land needing maintenance and enhancement.
    -Construction projects needing masonry, carpentry, and other skills. Beginner to advanced skills levels are acceptable. Painters needed.
    -A historic restoration project. We are building a cafe and artist residency space / event space. Currently in its final stages, we need help with finishing details and setup.
    -Barista services for a partnering local coffee roaster and cafe. Share your coffee skills with the community.

    I'm seeking focused, hardworking, mature individuals to join us for projects. I'm open to differing skill levels / past accomplishments / experience.
    General "helper" roles need filling, in addition to individuals with established skills in construction and other things.

    Candidates should be willing to share their skills and also learn new skills. It’s all about coming together to help one another.

    Living accommodations are shared and workawayers are paid weekly for their own personal groceries, etc. Work spans up to 8hrs each day, Mon-Fri. Custom schedules can be crafted. We have an extra jeep available for those with a drivers license.
