I am looking for someone to help with my off grid sled dog kennel in the heart of the Copper River Valley. This would include basic dog related chores, such as scooping poop, making fires to cook dog food, heat the shop and the house. I am willing to provide three meals a day, seven days a week, in exchange for 8 hours of work 5 days per week. If I am away racing the dogs you might have to work more than 5 days per week. The kennel is located off grid, and it seems there is always work to do, you would never be bored, or find yourself with nothing to do. Work and accommodations would be available until the end of March or mid April depending on snow conditions for running dogs. There is a very likely possibility for you to drive a team of dogs yourself, provided that you are physically capable to do so. There may even be a possibility to make some money driving a dog team for tourists. Donít worry I can teach you what you need to know. The ability to work a chainsaw and spl... more inside

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 in desperate need of a trustworthy and hardworking crew of individuals that have a love for life and a desire to succeed at a common goal. Our goal is to rebuild, redesign, and rePURPOSE a dilapidated yet sturdy string of floathouses sitting in Ward Cove, AK. We provide room and board on site. This is a beautiful, peaceful place to experience Alaska at it's unique core. Live like the loggers of southeast Alaska did, work hard, and help us bring this quirky piece of history back to life as LOGGERVILE 2!!! We want to turn this floatcamp (used for crew quarters of employees of the Ketchikan Pulp Company that was shut down in 1993) into a new and exciting place, and a tribute to history using as many of the original pieces as possible. Come help us bring history into the lives of our locals that would greatly appreciate the nostalgia as well as our new increased amount of visitors to Alaska!

I am looking for volunteers March-October for any length of stay. Help with greenhouse growing, processing new merchandise for the shop, gardening, weeding, watering, planting, cooking, and running the shop would all be appreciated.

In your free-time you can enjoy kayaking, ... more inside
