Our family is situated on 18 acres in Northern California. We built a passive solar straw bale house on a mountain top, and enjoy the beauty and bounty from this incredible place. We have lived here since 2010 and have been working from the ground up. A lot has been accomplished and we hope to continue! We are very laid back, going with the ebb & flow of life, yet strive to create our eden every day! We have had many folks visit & helps us from all over the globe...we love making new friends!

If you love the outdoors, and want to see an amazing piece of northern california, this is the place...Fall time is hub for international travelers. Many folks from all over come to see the beauty of this place. An hour away from the nearest city (Redding CA) and 2 1/2 hours from the coast (Fortuna CA)
We get up early and get to work...try & chill at the creek in the heat, then a little bit more work...then we are done! We have so many projects and so many ideas, we just need helping hands. A short list of goals to accomplish this year:
swales & terraces
cleaning & cooking
We have an extra room, open occasionally. We also have a 5th wheel that can sleep 5, 2 couples & one solo..or?
I also have a large tent that can sleep about 8, and a 18ft teepee that accommodate more...there is also many spots to sleep under the stars!
We have a kitchen inside but would love to create an outdoor kitchen. The 5th wheel also has a kitchen. We eat when we are hungry...and try to buy good food...mostly organic, GF, mixed diet and veggies from the garden as much as we can. We can provide staples and share meals. Special diets will be considered and worked out as best as possible, but I am not a gourmet chef, so let us know so we can figure something out.
We expect people to be safe, kind and courteous of all living things. We focus on NVC (non violent communication) and strive to be conscious in our daily lives. Time off is for your leisure, many things to do: hiking, swimming, fishing, reading, crafts, arts....???
We expect people to be responsible, thoughtful and willing to work. IF I have left anything out, please feel free to reach out!
