  • Description

    Description

    I was a teacher at an independent study charter school for 18 years. I have owned my property near the Sacramento River for 15 years and have built a small homestead with cabins, a garden, and an outdoor kitchen & living spaces. I enjoy hosting PCT (Pacific Crest Trail) hikers when they pass through between July and the end of September.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I have lived a life close to nature and am constantly working on simplifying. We will be living in small spaces, spending time outdoors, eating simple, whole foods, and producing my own live foods. We often have musical jams and time for tea/coffee in the mornings. IN the summer there are sometimes BBQs on the grill. There is always the possibility of a daily yoga practice too.

    Help

    The volunteer help varies and includes helping with general property improvement/maintenance, gardening, walking my dog, and cooking if you enjoy that. You'll be living as part of my extended family and often in a small community.
    We work and play hard here. In the summer months there is always a swimming excursion in the heat of the day and some evenings I will be sailing on our local lake.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    I am located just off the Highway 5. Very close to the Pacific Crest Trail, national forest, the Sacramento River, and Dunsmuir. Mt. Shasta City is a 12 minute drive away. Transportation to our main town, Mt. Shasta, is limited to occasional bus service or catching a ride with me when I go. I also have bikes that can be used to get into the closest town to us, Dunsmuir. There is also an Amtrak station in Dunsmuir, with trains departing north and south once every 24 hours. Greyhound also comes to Weed, but I recommend Amtrak if at all possible.
