Looking for HelpXers starting mid September.

We are family of 4 who moved to Texas from Australia 3 years ago. Nate is a scientist and Rika is an Elementary Teacher. Our daughters are 12 years and 10 years old. We have 2 dogs and 3 horses. We are looking to add chickens and veggie gardens to the farm.

Our farm is 5 acres of thick Cedar and Oak trees. There is a full size sand arena and 3 stall barn on property. The house has all the comforts of WiFi, bathrooms and laundry. There are many parks, trails and reserves close by.

We ask for 2-3 hours a day per person. This is in exchange for room and food. Current projects could include clearing land (trees, bushes and rocks), building a chicken coop, renovation of home, cleaning chores in home, cooking, picking up dog poop, unpacking garage, etc.

We have a horse trailer with an a/c and heater weekender. This is a small area with double bed, sink, closet, sofa, cooler and microwave. There are windows that open. The toilet block has a toilet and sink. HelpXers can use shower in house.

Or your welcome to pitch a tent or plug in your own camper.

Helotes is approx. 15 miles from San Antonio downtown. We are happy to drive you to various locations to explore while we are commuting to work or on daily errands.

A few rules:
We asked that you don`t come in house between 8pm and 7am so that we can get the girls to bed and have privacy. Otherwise the door is always open to use kitchen, use laundry etc.
No smoking in buildings, near hay or within view of kids.
