Come live in your own house on a beautiful river in rural Connecticut (a state in the US that borders NY and Massachusetts)
It is a beautiful place-- quiet and surrounded by nature. We have already done a lot of work on the property but there is more to do and could use some help in exchange for large and comfortable accommodation. We live in another house on the property so this is not a communal experience - it is a chance to have your own place for a while.
Travellers benefit from developing an understanding of the native woodland. Why native plants are important to sustain native wildlife and how invasive plants and animals are undermining the woodland. We have created an environment for multitudes of birds, mammals, insects that, while not perfect, is vastly improved from most of its surroundings. How does one discern natives? Invasives? How does one cultivate them? Irradicate what does harm to them?
Tree saving: invasive vines have been choking the trees. We have been removing the vines to save the trees.
plant care: watering, weeding. We have a vegetable garden
planting: from time to time.
Important that you have a car as we are not in walking distance of any commerce.
an entire house just for you. Full kitchen, 1 bathroom, 1 bedroom.
