Family owned business and we grow tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, edible hanging baskets and some other veggies in season. We also make fresh salsas as tomato production increases. We are near Homer, Alaska. We use organic methods and sea based soil amendments but we are not certified. We are in the process of building up our compost program to add to the greenhouse soils. Currently we need help with high tunnel completion, transplanting over 600 tomatoes, raised bed construction, planting and farmstead development. We need to build a watershed/ veggie storage building, farmstand, baskets and bins for the market and storage. We are working on hooking up a wood-fired outdoor boiler and would love to build an outdoor wood oven! We are on 10 acres of mostly untouched land with over 15 kinds of wild berries and lots of wildlife. We are located about 10 miles from Homer between Homer and Anchor Point.

We live in a small, off-the-grid, community on the west side of Kodiak Island, Alaska. It's a beautiful setting surrounded by both the Kodiak and Alaska Maritime national wildlife refuges. There's abundant wildlife and no shortage of projects to keep us busy. Activities center around working in a small boat, as well as tending the greenhouse, household chores, and generally keeping everything going. While we have traveled substantially and appreciate meeting people from around the world, it is probably best that a person (persons) be able to work legally in the U.S. Help is generally needed late Spring, Summer, and early Fall. While a person(s) need not have specific abilities nor brute strength, he/she/they should have a good work ethic, be enthusiastic, healthy, and easy to get along with.
Have a wonderful day...

We are not a typical farm. We are a small full-service, destination Wilderness Lodge.

We're looking for a strong, male volunteer that can help with various projects around the lodge and grounds. No experience necessary, just a hard work-ethic and a willingness to learn for the month of May (June, July, August & September are already covered).

We are also looking for a female volunteer to help inside the lodge with housekeeping duties from mid-May through mid-June. Again, no experience necessary, just a hard work-ethic and detail oriented.

We are also looking for a nanny for my 2 boys, ages 6 & 9. I do require a resume and references for this position, and am looking for someone to cover mid-May to mid-Sept. This person should be very athletic (able to keep up with 2 high-energy boys) in an island/ocean environment. They love climbing trees, swimming, throwing rocks, etc. and are outside almost every day.

We are looking for personalities that are kind, considerate, se... more inside

General help is needed, mostly in the kitchen, and housekeeping duties, (changing out the guest rooms) every morning. Other duties will include, dish washing and friendly interaction with guests.

I have a house on 2 acres in Fairbanks, Alaska. I need help for energetic individuals to help me with carpentry, taking weeds out, cleaning, stacking wood, attending to the garden, etc.

I also have a remote cabin. I need the same type of help. You'll have fun traveling to remote interior Alaska.

If interested, please reply with any skills or abilities you have. Even skills like playing the piano or being able to draw may be useful.

I'm looking for especially international travelers that can:

1.help me around the property in exchange for room and board.
2.take time to cook at least one meal that is traditional in your country (I can provide the ingredients you need)
3.take a few minutes to teach my children something about your country.

Depending on how long you stay we might be able to give you rides to Chena Hot Springs or other areas. 1-2 weeks would be ideal.
