    *️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️ PLEASE NOTE: we cannot accommodate RV's, trailers, etc, parked on our property, and please, NO PETS. Also, we are unable to accommodate a vegan diet. If you are a couple, we can only host ONE workawayer at a time. *️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️

    We are a small, neighborhood farm in Boulder, Colorado. We live on the land and grow vegetables and flowers for our neighbors, local schools, restaurants, and more. We practice organic and Biodynamic farming methods, and incorporate Permaculture techniques and principles. We eat daily from the garden, including eggs from our ducks and goose.

    Our land is as wild as it is cultivated—with daily visits from deer, coyotes, owls, foxes, and even the occasional bear or mountain lion! We have two loving dogs who keep watch over our land and all of its creatures.

    Help

    We primarily need assistance with tending to the garden, including: planting, transplanting, weeding, watering, harvesting, composting, setting up our weekly Little Garden Stand, and caring for our ducks and goose.

    If you have a talent for cooking, put your passion to work by finding creative ways to use the abundance of delicious, fresh produce! If you have a knack for photography, we are always looking for help documenting the goings-on around the farm. We also sometimes need help with occasional construction and maintenance projects, help around the house, or housesitting/dogsitting when we (rarely) manage to get away for a few days.

    Our farm is a not-for-profit project aimed at community-building, education, connecting humans to nature, getting people interested in where their food comes from, and helping those in need. From time to time we will need help in specific projects along these lines, and if you have a special inclination or experience in teaching, community organizing, fundraising, or anything else of the sort, we'd love to hear about it!

    Located on Wonderland Creek in northwest Boulder, we are situated next to the beautiful Colorado mountains with numerous hiking trails just a short walk from the house. It's an easy stroll to our neighborhood grocery, bakery, or coffeeshop. Downtown Boulder is easily accessible by a short bike ride or a hop on the bus.
