    Description

    Update....it is fall And we have projects. ( I have Rustic rooms with beds for one person or two people traveling together). Everything else is outdoors. Also you have to be content with your own company.
    Open for volunteers but plan on social distancing, sanitizing (plan on cleaning your area before you leave) and wearing a mask when necessary ( bring one) Also request that workawayers are not commingling with outside persons ( time off can be enjoyed with outdoor activities like hiking).
    The homestead will be our platform for meeting and learning and working. And the pond for swimming. Tasks : gardening, new hoop house green house preparation ( we are erecting the frame now) , moving dirt and rocks and compost, chicken care and repair, more compost maintenance and clean up some forest areas for continuing a permaculture area. Weeding and lawn mowing, splitting and stacking wood. The Food is mostly vegan, plenty of whole grains, fruits and vegetables, tea, water, and Eggs. There is a 9 o’clock quiet time and a request to play personal music using earbuds, also no drugs alcohol or smoking.

    My small rural solar homestead is in the beautiful Monadnock region of New Hampshire. I have an extensive garden of herbs, flowers and vegetables, chickens, and a wood lot. You can participate in day to day living of a simple life. I have a list of helping experiences and you can choose what you would like to do, or what you would like to learn. You must be self motivated because you’ll often be helping out on your own. Three hours of help a day will leave plenty of time for your own hobby or adventuring.

    What to bring, your plugs if you are sensitive to noise or want to listen to audio , a water bottle, a flashlight, coffee if herb tea and water isn’t enough, your favorite foods if you can’t live without them, Stout shoes that are good for getting dirty , wet and working in, work gloves and weather appropriate clothing. It gets cold here at night. Also if you are coming between the middle of May in the middle of June we have black flies. A head net Might be desirable to bring with you.
    You must have your own transportation. There is no public transportation to This part of New Hampshire. You must also be vaccinated.
