  • Description


    *No openings till mid September. The project's goal is to teach sustainability, create community and connect people to where food comes from and it’s true value. Volunteers should be eager to learn these principles and proactively follow them.

    Also I am partially disabled in one arm so I need a lot of help with housekeeping, cleaning, laundry, cooking and this is over 50% of the work required.

    I also am a rare plants seed bank and seedlings producer. I am very excited about what I do and love to teach people about sustainability and have fun doing it. Join us!

    I only take helpers from mid March or April through October.
    Minimum stay is 4 weeks. No short term stays. This is a real learning and volunteering experience and not just a cheap way to travel, if you are not interested in learning about sustainable practices and permaculture or just want a free place to stay this is not the right place for you.
