* { We are a 335 day a year organic learning facility/center, located in Central Washington, resting on the foothills of the Cascade Mountains, in the harvest basket of the Yakima Valley.

We offer the following opportunities.

Indoors:
(Winter) In the winter we enjoy snow sports, skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, etc. We like share this time with new friends.

Outdoors
(Spring ) We enjoy being outside and sharing nature with you.

(Summer) Afternoons are better spent in the water so we go to the river and kayak or hang out by the lakes which abound in this area.

(Fall) The changing colors of leaves, the lower temps give us a clue that winter is around the corner...but not yet. Our apricot orchard will soon turn colors and it will be time to can or make jellies.

(Winter) comes around quick and hopefully we will have put up enough for ourselves and to share with others. The berries, apricots and other fruits are put away in the pantry as we spend more time inside.


Inside the home, We share the cleaning, cooking, laundry etc. We offer instruction in a variety of subjects: painting, music, art, child care/education, dance, etc. We enjoy hosting individuals from around the world. We specialize in cultural exchange with all residents But YOU...(need to contact host, to see where your part of the puzzle fits in)

Examples of activities which may change day to day, season to season.

Update:

Spring has a chill in the air but inside the greenhouse it smells like new plants coming out of their seed beds, some are starting to pop out already...We talk aout plants native to your area or garden.

Summer, The summer sun is a little harsh on us all, so we water in the evening to decrease the evaporation

Some friendly advise for helpers;
(Fall)It is quite warm but beginning to cool off at night. Bring sunscreen. We start doing things early in the mornings or later in the afternoons.

(summer)During the midday we go swimming, kayaking, canoeing, and boating. Some days we just lay around and listen to music in the park or streets of Yakima.

(Winter), Welcome to Central Washington! winters which are snowy and sometime have cold nights & mornings..

So we sit around in the warmth of the house and think about....usually we have sunny days are pleasant OR HOT in mid-summer Fresh air, nature, lovely views.

As an experience traveler, I am very interested in reciprocating and enjoying the interactions with people-on-their-own-adventures.
This country place in lovely Yakima County would offer hikes to Rattle snake ridge with majestic views of Mount Adams and Mount Rainier. Bike ride the Greenway along side the glacial Yakima river. Winter time provides skiing and snowboarding at local resort (White Pass) One hour and 15 min. away. We will help you learn English. We are both teachers and multilingual (Spanish, English , French, and have academic knowledge of other languages)

We have four (4) inside dogs and one (1) one outdoor dog. No smokers please.

Please bring your favorite recipes from home to share. I am compiling acookbook from our visitors from around the world. All helpers are expected to help cook and cleanup after themselves.:) In addition, Please bring a small flag from your country, state, o r home region.

We are at the end of the season, which really ends

We prefer a two or three week stay. Please send a photo, a tentative schedule, and your name in the email.

We prefer non-smokers, due to allergies and fire hazards.
