    Many wonderful skills to be learned. Building, Organic Gardening (permaculture techniques will be implemented), off-grid living.

    If you have experience with construction, chainsaw, forestry, gardening, solar, or other off-grid skills that would be a bonus.

    Also looking for people with a joy for cooking. Help with Meals at times

    Mechanical Knowledge would be Amazing. Love learning how to fix cars/motorcycle/ etc.

    ***********************************


    We're in beginning stages of Developing a 20 acre property. Creating Gardens, Renewing older cabins. Forest Fire Safety.
    Most of the Building to be done is very Basic.


    It is a beautiful 20 acre Mountain property with incredible views and quiet privacy. Property is off-grid. There is currently electric power from Solar Panels (back-up generator if needed). Please note: there is poison oak. Always use caution.

    Nearby are wonderful places to hike, ancient Redwood groves- 10min to Avenue of the Giants. 35min. drive to gorgeous Kings Peak/ Shelter Cove ocean beach trails. River, kayak,SUP. The area is great for mountain biking or adventure motorcycling.
