  • Description


    Hi, my name is Chester. I was born here in Northern California. I live with my son Cooper and have been living the last couple of months with my friend Samadini from Sri Lanka and Jessica from Mexico. We have a small garden with vegetables and our house is located in Redwood Valley, California. It’s surrounded by trees, orchards, a few neighbors and the Russian River flows nearby.

    We are looking for people that would like to help out with a few simple projects: painting the house, building a chicken coop and gardening.

    But that's not all! I briefly wrote some poems , I want to mention that romance is a foot (because it’s a beautiful mystery of love). looking for people that don’t have borders, come be a part of this international team.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I can share the experience of cultivating for many years. I know trails near the house that are fun for hiking. I can also teach basic guitar, and of course we can practice English. We have two Spanish speakers, and I am learning Spanish. Bienvenidos!

  • Help


    The help in the house is straight forward, painting the outside and gardening tasks. We also have two ducks, a rooster, a turkey and baby chick and a dog to who we love. We are planting some vegetables that also require attention. We are hoping with you workawayers we can do more fun and creative projects too!

    There is a cow mountain recreation area, Mendocino Lake is 5 miles away. and the ocean is 30 miles away. There are organic farms (although due to the current crisis there is not much movement) at night and sometimes in the morning we make a hot tub, do Karaoke and improvise with the instruments in our fledgeling band "Nelson and the Strowmberries", and "Dan and the marleys or wailers"
