Rose lives with family on 10 acres on the side of Mount Dallas on San Juan Island, Washington. We are trying to live in harmony with the Earth, growing food for ourselves and others, and producing a minimum of waste. It is a beautiful life in a beautiful place.

Rose, Mike, & Robin are seasoned travelers and have learned so much from working and living around the world. With gratitude for our wonderful hosts abroad, we wish to share our beautiful home with other travelers.
Rose is a mental health care professional and an herbalist.
Rose's parents, Robin and Mike, live next door. They have lots of skills, life experience, and love to offer. We have lots of practical knowledge to share on a variety of topics. We can also converse fluently with you in Spanish.
We are finishing the interior of our beautiful strawbale house. Conventional and natural building skills are very helpful. That said, if you're just learning, you're also welcome. We'll train you. People who can work without supervision would be greatly appreciated as we are also working.
We also care for a big organic raspberry patch and a large garden. Come grow food sustainably with us! Most of the year, our meals come from the garden and the forest. We harvest cultivated and wild plants for medicine for ourselves and the community.
Projects for 2021:
-We plan to build a greenhouse.
-Finish painting house and window trim.
-Harvest apples and plums. Make cider.
-Build a new fence.
-Cut up trees that blew down last winter and pile branches.
-Build a new deck.
Finally, there are all of the enjoyable (but copious) tasks of being good stewards of our land. Pulling invasive species, general weeding, mowing, clearing, fence maintenance, trail work, firewood, etc. There are so many ways to get your hands dirty here.

We have a one-acre field in the back of the property that is well-maintained. Bring your own tent, camper van, and/or car. You will awaken to birdsong every morning! All accommodations are fairly rustic, but also clean and quiet. Suitable for couples, friends, or individuals.
Fresh well water onsite. Outdoor shower with on-demand heater plus gorgeous pond for swimming. You will be using an outhouse.
Ample camp kitchen, under a circus tent! We will stock the kitchen with basic ingredients plus veggies and fruit from the garden. Thursday nights are a neighborhood potluck.
There are many farms nearby for buying additional food, as well as a food-coop, weekly farmer's market, and two grocery stores.
We take Covid very seriously. San Juan Island has one of the lowest rates in the country because people here take it seriously and we expect our visitors to do the same. Each of us have completed our two jabs and we are asking visitors to be vaccinated as well. We will adapt to the situation as it develops.
The San Juan Islands sit in one of the most beautiful corners of the Pacific Northwest. It is a 1 hour ferry ride from the mainland. Hike, swim, lounge on the beaches, ride bikes, kayak, explore! Right down the road ¼mi/500m to the Ihiya Biological Reserve.
We are located six miles/10km from the small town of Friday Harbor. Just about anything you may need is available there. (if they don't have it do you really need it?)
We are hard-working early-to-bed, early-to-rise folks. Feel free to keep different hours as long as you are considerate of others,
We try to be as neat as possible and produce little trash. No illegal drugs or cigarettes onsite, please. Alcohol in moderation.
