My partner and I bought a five-acre parcel of land several years ago. We've been building our home here with the intention of using the space as a retreat center someday. We are in the final stages of building, but we could really use some help. Our family garden seriously suffers every year because we're so busy. We would also welcome help clearing trails through the small, wooded areas around the property. You can imagine the odd jobs that would come up on a property like this and we could use some help.
As for Shari and I, we are constantly working and, although we might need encouragement, we like to sit around a fire and talk with new people, go for walks with our dogs, bike, and go out on the Mississippi in our kayaks. We love animals and currently have 3 dogs and 2 cats. Please NO smokers.

We live in a beautiful area surrounded by bluffs and very near the Mississippi river. Unfortunately, we are only fluent in English. However, we welcome anyone who would like to develop their English and share their language with us. We also love to cook and invite anyone who might like to share their culinary skills with us. FYI, I am vegetarian, and Shari only prepares humanly raised meat.
We love to prepare and eat food as a family and we welcome our workaway guests to join us whenever they want to. The tasks here on the land are project oriented and we have both come from a farm mentality where we all are taking on a task of some sort. We find doing projects together, especially on the garden, makes the time much nicer and gives us more time to enjoy the land after the tasks are done. We love learning about other cultures; so, finding someone who is interested in sharing their experiences with us along with immersing themselves in our culture would be the best fit for us.

We have a small but very cute cabin that can house one to two people comfortably. It is off the grid; however, guests are welcome to use the main house when you need to access a computer. We have a compostable toilet and an outdoor shower (with warm water). These spaces are for the workaway guests use. I'll provide pics of these spaces.
If shopping is your thing, the Mall of America is about 2 hrs away from us as well all of the Theatre, concerts, great food you name it, that can be found in Minneapolis. We have two kayaks and a canoe here on the land if you want to use them to take trips out on the Mississippi. We have beautiful hiking and bike trails around the area as well. We encourage you to get a feel for midwestern life while you're here.
