We live on a 1-acre urban farm inside the Portland, Oregon city limits. We also farm an additional 1/2-acre plots in an adjoining neighborhood in Portland, and a new 8-acre plot in Longview, Washington. We farm open-pollinated vegetables, fruit and herbs. While not certified organic, we hold ourselves to the strictest no-spray policies and use only organic materials and practices.

We're looking for a helper or two to stay 1 month or longer.

Winter work includes: feeding and caring for dogs and rabbits, clean-up, fruit-tree pruning, over-winter planting, micro-greens, new bed prep, tilling new ground, some fence work, light construction/trellis work, as well as light housework and yardwork.

Late Winter/Spring: planting seed starts, preparing beds, planting in the ground, hatching ducklings.

We have two 15-foot vintage camp trailers that comfortably sleep 2. We eat some of our own vegetables and are an omnivorous household. Vegans and vegetarians are welcome, too. All are responsible for cooking their own meals. Staple ingredients are provided.

No children or pets, please.

Thank you, everyone for your interest.
