I need both office help with my environmental protection work and for our farm is a homestead that produces non-certified organic apples, eggs, and some vegetables as well. A photograph and a phone interview are required. We are partial to Spanish speakers who can help teach our three year old daughter Spanish a few hours a week, but all are welcome to apply. I am now a single dad with my girl here 3 -4 days a week. We work at integrating those who come into the community. As we usually have only one or two interns at a time, we make sure you get to meet the neighbors. However, it is good to enjoy your own company, as well, as this is a place to enjoy solitude. We have an orchards of 20 producing fruit trees and 75 young saplings we are tending. Work includes weeding, planting and harvesting vegetables, picking and juicing apples, tending and cleaning chicken coop (about 13 hens), fixing fence, splitting firewood rounds for personal use and sale, and so on. Office work includes, filing, recycling, organizing supplies and tools on shelves, etc.

Trade includes providing us with 25 hours a week in exchange for a lovely place in a trailer or if it's full, in one of two stand-up vans. There is also a good size tent with a real bed. We provide whatever food you'd like to eat. We share about 1/3 - 1/2 the meals give or take. You can cook your own meals in your own kitchen that is provided. We have a composting toilet outside in a small structure and a detached shower room with plenty of hot water.

We practice environmental activism so politics and awareness are part of the program here.
