  • 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: getting the land Ready for next year repairing beds and cleaning up and also house maintenance. Looking for people that don’t have borders, come be a part of this international team.

    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!
