    Descripción

    Hello! My name is Colton. I’m originally from Arkansas, but now live in California. I was fortunate enough to travel often through my twenties over the last decade & I participated in lots of exchanges & volunteer opportunities around the world. All of those experiences were wonderful! Now that I have a project of my own I look forward to hosting travelers & sharing some of the skills that I’ve gained along the way.

    I have a beautiful property in northern California that was homesteaded during the gold rush & operated as a gold mine. It was abondoned for a couple of decades prior to me getting it. So it’s a diamond in the rough currently! There is a house & several cabins that I’m in the process of renovating. A fruit orchard with walnuts, apples, pears, plums, peaches, & mulberries.

    This year I’m setting up a vegetable garden. There are 2 creeks that run through the property & a large pond. We’ll be setting up hydro-electricity this summer. We’re also cleaning around the pond & setting up a little floating village with yurts & who knows what else!

    Come check it out!

    We need help with land & brush clearing around the pond. The perimeter of the pond was vastly overgrown, so removing brush to allow for the more dominant trees to thrive. This is done with pruning shears & rakes. Also, landscaping around the home & tending to the vegetable gardens.

    Alojamiento

    By the pond we have yurts set up for accommodation.

    There is an outdoor shower & kitchen area over there as well. It’s a few minute walk from the main house, so it’s nice & private.

    I will provide food. We typically try to cook together. We don’t have any dietary restrictions, but can accommodate those that do. We’re located directly off the highway, but there isn’t public transport here, so having a vehicle would be best, but not entirely necessary.

    Algo más...

    The property is 3 hours east from San Francisco & 1.5 hours north of Sacramento. Located 25 miles north of beautiful Nevada City. There are many rivers & lakes in the area. Lots of cool old gold rush towns as well. Plenty of places to get off the beaten path & relax.
