Aloha, Come enjoy a peaceful homestead in a jungle paradise.
We are two families that live and caretake a 5 acre tropical farm. This is not a commercial farm. Workawayers will not be involved with any aspect of business. We have been living a sustainable lifestyle and homesteading for over 14 years in Kealakekua, Hawaii. The land is filled with organic gardens and permacultured landscapes. We have dogs and cats and about to get chickens!
We are looking for a solid, responsible, and independent couple or (two friends wiling to share a 10x20 space) who can contribute to our scene. It is also very important that we hold the same values for well-being. We are very busy so we are looking for people who can easily fit into our family's flow.
At this point the help we need will be laborious. Clearing out the jungle and tending the gardens which are ever growing.
We expect 16 hours of work a week in trade. Examples of tasks include weedwacking, mulching, seeding, planting, harvesting and making compost teas.
We like to start with a 2 week contract to make sure it is fitting for both parties and if its a really good fit we are open to considering longer stays.

We live at 1700ft elevation, so it is slightly cooler and refreshing at night. You will have access to plenty of fresh tropical fruits and vegetables. We live 10 minutes drive from the ocean and 25 minutes from downtown Kona. Local Bus stop is at the end of my road.
Our Island offers amazing hiking right from my home, (check out the 7 mile Captain Cook Monument trail). The entrance is a 10 minute walk from my house. ...all kinds of ocean sports, and camping. Also 10 minutes from dolphin resting area, so you can swim with the dolphins in the morning.
Please bring your own masks, fins, snorkel, and beach towels.
Cutting down tree branches and pulling overgrown weeds to make clear paths. Experience with weed wackers or willing to learn how to use them is needed.
You will learn how to build soil and feed the plants through Hawaiian natural farming practices.
Harvesting and tending our food gardens need to get done on a weekly basis. Sometimes there are DIY projects in our home that require tools or artistic creativity.
Cleanliness is very important and helping with household chores will be expected.
A valid Drivers License and health insurance is a must.
This is not a commercial farm. Workawayers will not be involved with any aspect of business.
