    Ajuda

    We are finishing the exterior of our beautiful strawbale house. Conventional and natural building skills are very helpful. That said, if you're just learning you're also welcome, we'll train you but would appreciate a longer commitment. People who can work without supervision would be greatly appreciated as we are also working and can't be around all of the time.

    We also care for a big organic raspberry patch and a large garden. Come grow food sustainably with us! Seasonally, much of our meals come from the garden and the forest. We harvest cultivated and wild plants for medicine for ourselves and the community.

    Projects for 2023;
    -Seal exterior wall of the stawbale house.
    -Painting projects. Indoor and outdoor.
    -Harvest cherries, apples and plums. Make cider.
    -Build a new fence.
    -Cut up trees that blew down during the winter and pile branches.
    -Cut firewood for next winter.
    -Build a shed


    Finally, there are all of the hard but enjoyable and satisfying tasks of being good stewards of our land. Pulling invasive species, general weeding, mowing, clearing, fence and building maintenance, trail work, firewood, etc. There are so many ways to get your hands dirty here.

    Acomodação

    We have a beautiful one-acre field in the back of the property that is well-maintained. Bring your own tent, camper van, and/or car. You will awaken to birdsong every morning! All accommodations are fairly rustic, but also clean and quiet. Suitable for couples, friends, or individuals.

    Fresh well water onsite. Outdoor sink and shower with on-demand heater plus gorgeous pond. You will be using an outhouse.

    Ample camp kitchen, under a circus tent! We will stock the kitchen with basic ingredients plus veggies and fruit from the garden. Thursday nights are a family potluck.

    There are many farms nearby for buying additional food, as well as a food-coop, weekly farmer's market, and two grocery stores.

    We take Covid very seriously and we expect our visitors to do the same. Each of us have completed our vaccinations and boosters and we are asking visitors to be up-to-date with vaccines and boosters as well. We will adapt to the situation as it develops.

    The San Juan Islands sit in one of the most beautiful corners of the Pacific Northwest. Roughly midway between Seattle and Vancouver, B.C. It is a 1 hour ferry ride from the mainland. Hike, swim, lounge on the beaches, ride bikes, kayak, explore! National Park and other public lands near by to enjoy. Right down the road ¼mi/500m to the Ihiya Biological Reserve.

    We are located six miles/10km from the small town of Friday Harbor. Just about anything you may need is available there. (if they don't have it do you really need it?)

    We are hard-working early-to-bed, early-to-rise folks. Feel free to keep different hours as long as you are considerate of others,

    We try to be as neat as possible and produce little trash. No illegal drugs or cigarettes/vaping onsite, please. Alcohol in moderation.

    There is internet available near the main houses. It's pretty slow. Cell service is sketchy, T-mobile is the best (2 bars). For others you may have to go into town.
