Autumn is here on Orcas Island, Washington State, in the San Juan Island Archipelago, with foggy dew and golden light. I need helpers as the house is finished, and we are painting and cleaning up construction. Please come and enjoy this place, convenient to town and beach. The plumbing is complete, new windows are going in and the basement is available to sleep on mattresses - no camping necessary.
My cabin was joined by a big house floated by barge from Seattle. Then the foundation and first floor were built under it. We need helpers for one to six weeks to help us finish sheetrock and trim inside the house, scrape, prime, and paint the old cedar shingle siding, set up organic gardens. Work is five hours from 8:30-1:30pm. Afternoons are free. Town is a 15 minute walk. Biking, kayaking, swimming, hiking, or camping in Moran State Park are all good possibilities. We are one block from the public beach, and have beautiful sunset views. We are 1 mile from Eastsound. Look forward t... more inside

I have purchased a home that needs lots of help! I am making up this word but it is in desperate need of being "cute-ified." We are close to the base of Sequoia National Park in California's San Joaquin Valley, and a couple hours drive from Yosemite National Park, San Francisco and Los Angeles. My area, in many ways, is considered to be the best place in California to live because we are centrally located. We are 30 minutes from the mountains, 2.5 hours from Los Angeles, and 2 hours from the beach as well as 3.5 hours from San Francisco.

I have worked as a Helper last summer in France so I know that perspective and will be sensitive to that. I am fine with someone staying only a week as I understand this area is more of a launching pad to other areas in California.

My son and I are into sustainable living practices and we do all that we can to preserve the natural resources that we have. Our valley is in the highest stages of drought so we are exceedingly careful w... more inside

Doe Bay is a rustic resort and retreat center in the San Juan Islands in Washington State. Located on 35 acres of coastal property on Orcas Island, the Doe Bay community serves as the cultural and social hub of the Eastern side of the island. We operate a bourgeoning seed to table program from our on-site garden that provides many of the ingredients for the vegetarian/pescatarian menu served at the Doe Bay Cafe. The cafe garners a reputation in the region for delicious seasonal and local fare and is a unique gathering place for local islanders, folks from the Pacific Northwest, and guests from around the U.S. and the world. In addition to the garden and cafe, Doe Bay is perhaps most famously known for its hot tubs and sauna. These relaxing amenities overlook Otter Cove and provide bathers a unique view of the San Juan Islands and the Puget Sound. Doe Bay also offers on-site yoga classes, therapeutic massage, and a unique library open to staff and guests. As a Doe Bay work tra... more inside

"Resident volunteers" from HelpX and Wwoof have been a Godsend to our non-profit working ranch serving children and animals on our 15 acre ranch. When we lost our site development funding the day after 9-11, we thought the ranch would go under. But the children who had been coming to the ranch during after school programs and summer camps refused to let that happen. They gave up their fun time on the ranch riding horses and driving go-carts to work every minute they could to keep the ranch going. They hand dug fence posts, built shelters for the animals and did whatever was needed.

In as much as they loved the ranch, they missed their fun times on the ranch until we got our first "resident volunteer" from Wwoof and more followed who also came from HelpX.

Once we signed up with HelpX and Wwoof, the ranch has continually progressed forward thanks to some wonderful help from around the world.

The kids are so very grateful for all who have come and who have left them with wo... more inside

5 acres with beach access on Lopez Island next to Shark Reef Sanctuary (a park where Sea Lions frolic with many small beach coves and amazing views). I am coming from Hawaii and getting to work on this mostly raw land. I envision putting in gardens (organic / permaculture) and orchards and improving places for myself and guests/helpers/wwoofers etc. to stay (as of this writing just an outhouse, camper and camping spots), while leaving some of the land in it's natural state. Gardeners, treehouse builders, cobb / earth / pole / stick builders wanted. Someone is bringing by a zipline - so if you know how to install it - come on by. This is a beautiful area, however we will be roughing it, staying in an airstream, a camper or a tent until more stylie digs are created...think witnessing the birth or early years of this farm - here's your chance to help it grow!

Wx doesn't seem to want me to post more pics, but this is heavily wooded land (see pic of outhouse)

Since I am new ... more inside

We are on a part of the original homestead in this small Mt community. Our great ancient Oak and sacred fire circle have been a ceremonial site for many gatherings large and small. We have a veggie garden several fruit trees
and a creek which runs thru the property. I seed save and grow most of our garden from seeds we have saved from years past. I am interested in maintaining open pollinated seeds from our local area. So chores include sorting and storing our seeds for seed saving as well as indoor organization and general house keeping. We are omnivores and enjoy artists and musicians and anyone out to explore the world. We have 2 sweet gentle dogs. We also have office work for the organization of Accounts and also the household filing and updating office records. Fall is beautiful here be prepared for either warm or chilly.

Looking for person or persons to work 3 hours a day, 5 days a week in the morning. The rest of the time is your own, and you may do as you like.
Duties would include general yard and garden work. Also cleaning pens and coop, feeding animals, collecting eggs, picking fruit, vegetables, and nuts in the growing seasons. Other times would be general yard, garden or pen cleanup, or help out as needed. House work would be general chores, like sweeping, dusting, dishes. There is always something to do here, no matter what skills you may have.

If you have carpentry, electrical, or plumbing skills it would be a plus. Building, sheet rocking, wall papering, tiling, or finish carpentry would be a huge plus. Our house was never completely finished, because my husband has had 9 major surgeries and can no longer do the work himself.

We have a large vegetable garden 9 months of the year. This year we have added a whole new section for Spring planting, and will be planting 4 new fruit tre... more inside
