  • Description

    Description

    We are a young professional couple that lives in Parks, AZ. We are interested in conservation, sustainability and making our household more eco-friendly and self sufficient. We recently bought the one acre property and we have lots of projects to complete! We have 2 dogs, many chickens, a few ducks, 2 pigs, and an increasing number of rabbits... :)
    We are a drug free household but are open-minded in regards to sexuality, religion, and cultures.
    We are located about 45 minutes from Sedona, an hour from the Grand Canyon and 30 minutes from a local climbing spot called Paradise Forks/Sycamore Falls. We also have a small lake that's a little over a mile from the house! We enjoy sharing the southwest and anticipate learning about other countries. We are about 30 minutes from Flagstaff and can provide rides to and from about once per day during the week.

  • Help

    Help

    We have plenty that could get done, but do not stress. Yard work, gardening, organization, general housework, composting, harvesting/butchering (making meat), outside maintenance, painting, or cooking are examples of the type of work but it will depend on the person.
    We would also love help ensuring that the animals are fed, watered and let out/put away during the day.
