Learn about suburban regeneration and community involvement at our four year old suburban permaculture site in our well cared for home. I am a science teacher and work full time and am looking for help with my young food forest and moving my home toward minimalism.
You will learn a lot by helping me with:
Spring maintenance of site which includes:
Mulching with onsite shredded leaves (leaves must be raked and shredded on site)
Removing dead and undesirable plants and composting
Building trellises for brambles (blackberries and raspberries)
Pruning (I will teach you)
Minimizing (helping remove unneeded items from garden and home)
20 hours/week. Our food is mostly but not all organic and we are semi vegetarian. We are in a lovely area with ocean and bay beaches, lakes, forests and lots of art culture. We are about an hour and a half from NYC so you could visit use before or after your time there. Our family is involved in the community so if you are interested in local government, politics or social issues we can connect you with ways to learn more about that.
Willingness to give and receive honest feedback.
Hard working with good stamina.
Intent on fulfilling commitments/agreements.
Clean and tidy and able to live communally with adults and teens.
Flexibility when tasks change based on weather or unexpected events.
Car is highly recommended. I have one bike to lend.
No smoking/no drugs
