We expect Workawayers to volunteer 5 hours a day. The amount of days per week may vary, but a minimum of 3 days a week is expected. We hope to find people who are able to both work independently and within team dynamics. Must have clear honest communication skills.
We can host up to 3-5 Workawayers and can offer an area to tent (warm days - up to 90's & cool nights's down to 50's). Suggested length of stay is between 2 & 3 weeks or more. We speak English and some Italian. Dogs maybe welcome. We are both omnivores and focus mainly on locally produced vegetables and meats. Vegan and Gluten-Free friendly.
We are located 45 minutes drive to Ashland, and 15 minute drive to the small town of Ruch. Our home is surrounded by national forest, rolling hills, year long creeks, a pond, and abundant hiking trails. Adjacent to the land is a thriving intentional community that produces ample produce for the local CSA, as well as artisan breads. Our neighborhood also contains an organic raw dairy, a brewery and thriving natural building community. Nearby entertainment: The Britt Music Festival, Shakespeare festival, paragliding, wine tasting, Applegate lake, river adventures, Pacific Crest Trail, 2.5 hrs from the coast.
