    Description

    Hello!

    We're working on an outdoor glamping / ecovillage experience by giving new life to an old orchard and farmhouse. Last year, with the help of volunteers, we built 4 platforms for our bell tents, built an outdoor kitchen, solar shower, composting toilets, and planted a huge garden!

    This spring's projects will be a continuation of this... Mulching and seeding for a large permaculture style garden, building a chicken tractor, solving a grey water system, building onto the outdoor kitchen, setting up tents, and caring for the orchard property. There is a New England barn that will get renovated into a yoga & art studio also! Current position is open starting APRIL 15th - MAY 15th. We would like to host in 1-2 week intervals.

    Skills & interests can range from outdoor building, permaculture, landscaping, decorating, art & photography, cooking, solar energy and composting. Manual labor will definitely be involved! We work hard during the days, and help cook and enjoy meals together.

    Located in upstate NY, the town is a 2.5 hour drive from NYC. There's an amtrak train line for transportation into the city as well, and bikes on the property. Lots of rolling hills and nearby farms, swimming holes, and good vibes.

    Thanks for reading!

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Upstate NY is beautiful and a great place to explore. We're all learning together about building with the materials we have, and working off the land. Join in the experience of creating a place for everyone to do their best work.

    Exchange is room and 3 meals a day for a full help day, weekends can be free or partial exchange. Flexible on schedule to make it work for everyone. We have some semi-experienced builders and farmers to work with. Let me know what your specialties are, and we'll find a good fit. Would like to have 1-2 week intervals of help.

    Tasks can range from interior demo work to outdoor deck construction, rebuilding a chicken coop into an outdoor kitchen, landscaping, tent building, treehouse building, Painting spaces, cooking, gardening, learning and interacting with others.

    Experienced builders are encouraged but not required! Gardners, cooks, landscapers, and general handy people are all helpful! Thank you :)))
