  • Description

    Description

    I live on the beautiful Puna coast, on the Hilo side of the Big Island.
    This is a 20 acre homestead.

    When I moved here, in 1991, most of the property was a barren lava flow. Now the whole property is an edible permaculture jungle!

    Originally , I had the ideal of avoiding gas powered machines, and storebought amendments. Machete was my favorite tool! That was easier to maintain back when the only fertility was where I put it. (No weeds in between plantings)

    Now, there is fertility everywhere!
    (And now I have a bobcat😂)

    They call this 'Sunny Kapoho'.
    I live 1 mile from a fresh water crater lake, 3 miles from the geothermal warm springs, and 4 miles to the surf spot.

    The weather here is ideal for growing most tropical plants... we have plenty of rain and sun.

    I live in an off-grid neighborhood. All of us here live from solar power, and our water comes from the rain.

    There is very comfortable camping, with privacy,access to hot water shower, outhouse style toilets, and dry kitchen space with electrical access. AT&T has good reception for anyone with a data plan with them. Otherwise, I can make a hotspot available for limited times.

    Most of the help I need is hand work, caring for food and medicinal plants and fruit trees.
    Also, there is always a need to help with organization and cleaning around.

    There may also be building projects.
    I have a lot of experience and knowledge to share, and pass on...

    Aide

    I have much need for general help on the land, mostly hand work, weeding and caring for trees and plants. I have a lot of knowledge to share about permaculture and low impact living in the tropics.
    I may have alternative building projects to take part in also, at times...

    Autres infos...

    There are LOTS of social opportunities nearby, as well as incredible nature spots within walking or biking distance. I have 2 bikes available for people to use. Hitchhiking locally is easy and safe.
    This is a great (and diverse)neighborhood.

    Nombre d'heures attendues

    as I am just getting started with this, I was imagining that 2-4hours a day, up to 5 days a week would be really helpful. Sometimes there might be projects that could use more concerted effort.
