Please read the entire introduction before you contact me. Spring is now and lots of projects to do... A poor manís paradise and womanís paradise on the Mendocino coast. Clean air, Clean water, Organic fresh picked Veggies! Artesian well with delicious crystal clear water, Flat land, Raised garden beds, Orchard. Work day is usually 8:30am until 12:30pm 5 days a week, usually Weekends are days off. We grow maritime area veggies such as cabbage, kale , chard, potatoes,squash, lettuce, garlic, onions, leeks, lots of flowers, etc. Area is very nice for beach walking, fishing, sightseeing, nature communing with large redwoods and much more. Speak English and basic Spanish. No children or pets please. Because we are at our store all day Saturday Sunday and Monday, stays of 2-4 days Tuesday-Friday only would be best, but I can work out a longer stay with the right individuals. That said, all the helpers have stayed at least a week. In exchange for 3 meals a day and a heated bedroom, I would like 20+/- hours a week or 4-5 hours a day of general labor at whatever you are good at. Should you stay in your own RV or wish to prepare some meals on your own we can work out a lesser work trade arrangement. We eat mainly organic meals with mostly vegetable based ingredients, but we are not totally vegetarians. We don't eat beef or pork. We like this to be a mutually gratifying situation for all of us. We like to both teach and learn. This is a fragrance free ranch. We are very sensitive to certain chemicals and fragrances. It is essential to have your own transportation as it is many miles to town and public transit is minimal. We are also jewelry makers and stone workers with a retail store (at a different location) which we run Saturday, Sunday and Monday. We have a large lapidary facility and extensive jade and stone inventory right here on the ranch. I welcome work trade to experienced stone workers and jewelry makers as well as web designers. I sell on Ebay so any work trade for that type of help would also be welcome. There is a small cabin only for a short stay and a living area by the shop or space for your own RV or tent. If you have read all of this so far, please include the word MENDO in the first line of your email to us. Including this word tells us you have read our entire introduction and helps us to determine serious inquiries. Mandatory for all volunteers...You have profile photo and sufficient info about any prospective accompanying Helpers. We speak on the phone first, I will check references, You must have a photo ID. Upon arrival I make a copy of your ID with photo. I will give you the copy upon your departure. Spring is here and there is much work to do especially if we are doing a project. I want to repeat. You must have a vehicle to visit us.
