  • Descrição



    We are a married couple living on our 20 acre homestead in McDade, TX which is nestled in the pine trees in Central Texas. Our homestead currently has gardens, a culinary mushroom cultivation building currently in progress and a pond.

    We are building an eco home and are using a cob & straw bale method. We need volunteers who are physically and mentally fit to help with eco-construction as it is a laborious task.

    We are located 40 minutes East of the booming city Austin, TX which has endless activities to do. There is a town called Bastrop that is 25 minutes South of us that has a lake and a river so those are things you can do in your free time here. There is an extra car here at the farm that is available for use (if you have your driver's license).

    We don't have any dietary restrictions and prefer to get our food from our own gardens or locally sourced. We love to make Whole Food meals and like to bake our own bread. We eat meat but we're happy to accommodate Vegan/Vegetarian & Gluten Free diets.
    Our property is drug & alcohol free.

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    During your time here, you'll be able to learn about eco-construction, horticulture/gardening, the local plants (some wild foraging), and all that Central Texas has to offer as it is such a diverse area.
    We live about 40 minutes from Austin, a large city that is full of Texas history. There is a lot of history to explore around this area as well and can find old historic buildings and homes. There are also many museums in Austin.
    For our nature lovers, this area has so much to offer. There's lakes and rivers nearby as well as many hiking trails.

    • Our homestead is really simple but we have electricity, water from the well, and internet in some places. This is not a clamping experience and Texas is really hot during the summer months. Some days are over 100 degrees Fahrenheit but we will be working in the mornings or evenings when it is not so hot (80-90 degrees). Are you able to be in these climate conditions?
    • Do you have any skills that you want to share with us? This can be anything.
    • Can you work by yourself with instructions or do you tend to need more guidance?
    • Do you have any questions for us?

    We look forward to sharing space with you!

    Espaço para estacionar campervans

    We'd be happy to have your mobile home here at the farm. We don't have any RV connections though. If you have a 30 amp adapter, we could plug you in with an extension cord but it also depends on how much power you'd be pulling. Message me about it and I'd be happy to figure out if we can accommodate!
