    Reclaiming a jungle farm in Kona Hawaii on a steep hillside and a beautiful view. The shack and the house and the farm all need some loving care, some sweat, without too much blood or tears. It is beautiful and there are lots of tropical foods growing, and it’s also a jungle living experience. We are growing avocados, cacao, bananas, citrus, star fruit, loquat, and more. Any produce off the farm will be eaten, given away to friends, family, coworkers and people in need. I like to have a variety of projects so that Workawayers can choose what best suits their skills. On the project list currently: making the driveway less rutted; power washing then painting; screwing on a new roof to the shack; weed whacking; cleaning.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities abound if you seek them out with humility from the local scene. Of course, anytime you travel to a new place, especially with a different landscape you will learn much. Even if what you learn is that country life is not for you. Ha ha. I’m happy to orient you to lots of opportunities for exploring the local culture and flavor.

    Much of the work might be solo unless the second Workaway comes with you for joins you. The first order of business is to make the road more drivable, and the shack more livable so some experience with basic tools is of course a plus. Comfortability with a Weedwhacker would be important as well. I am a waldorf schoolteacher and a parent but I do hope to work alongside of whoever comes from time to time

    There is a house, that is open to the view, the air and all: think fewer walls, but balcony style railings all around and an amazing view. There is a bedroom upstairs. The road is in need of repair, so at the moment it’s an uphill walk of 4-5minutes. It is well built and in good shape, and not completely finished. There is also a coffee shack, “in-law” tiny house which will become the Workaway quarters eventually. Food staples are included.

    Algo más...

    I have a car that I rent to travelers from time to time and there are periods when it is already rented, but would consider Workaway use of the car for extra time on the farm, or for pay.
