  • Description


    August 30, 2021
    We are looking for one physically strong intern or a camping couple who can help with gardening, house organizing, cleaning,, website, non profit educational farm and legal research for a few weeks or more.
    Hoping for a mature, responsible person who is strong, positive and has good communication skills. You would have the mornings to yourself and help in the afternoons approx 4 hrs per day during the work week. If you are interested in
    womens empowerment, regenerative agriculture, social justice, holistic health, ecological living and helping out a farmer/artist than this may be a good spot for you. We do ask that you have health insurance and bring medicines and special foods that help you stay well.
    A covid test is not necessary as long as you have been careful. We believe everyone should be able to make their own health care choices.
    Please understand that if you are seriously interested you have to call on the phone when we give you the number. We are finding more young people who just want to text or email and we can't get a proper sense of a person that way.
    Also though we have signed up to receive notifications that someone has made an inquiry we don't always receive them. Please write back and we will try to check them more frequently.

    Here is our description below.
    We are a small homestead in a vibrant, progressive community of sustainable farming , the arts and education in Western Massachusetts.
    We raise fruit, herbs, vegetables and livestock and practise Permaculture and Biodynamic farming methods.
    We are looking for help with housecleaning, writing, gardening, building studio, laundry and raising goats.
    So far we have had two wonderful Work Away people and it has been a great experience.
    Looking for help anywhere from a few days to a couple of months.
    We are a multi generation household with massage therapist, renewable energy, farmers, artists and students. Easy going, friendly atmosphere. Meditation, qigong, yoga, healthy food prep and many creative activities are all part of our daily rounds. Comfortable lodging in farmhouse or barn studio or tiny house cabin depending on length of visit and season.
    Happy Work Awaying!

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We teach meditation, qigong, organic and biodynamic gardening and love to share our beautiful homestead with people on the path of ecological, conscious living. Our farm is inspired by Permaculture farming methods and we cook from scratch both omnivore and vegetarian.

    We know many artists and musicians and host events here and go to concerts and shows around the Pioneer Valley in Massachusetts and beyond and are happy to share our connections.

    Help is needed especially this fall and winter with office and computer work, gardening, planting, pruning fruit trees, writing, launching educational farm project. In the Spring we start gardening, ie planting, weeding, growing fruit and vegetables, herbs and flowers.
    The day starts out with free time in the morning and then after lunch we ask for the afternoon each day helping us around the house, gathering trees for goats, etc. Great if you cook and eat organic as much as possible.
    Due to covid and resulting financial fall we provide staples grains and beans and some vegetables but ask that you supplement with your own money for the speciality foods you love.

    One rule we have had to incorporate is No Smoking anywhere on the farm. We had a serious fire here and just don't want either pot or cigarettes smoked anywhere on the property. You can easily go for a walk down the dirt roads.
    We are 15 minutes from Amherst Center, Leverett Peace Pagoda, Leverett Food Co-op and Arts and Crafts.
    1/2 hr from Northampton with lots of cultural events, dance, music and art shows.
