(our suite is presently rented on air bnb . we are booked for most of the summer. We are trying to find an alternate space for help but so far we only have an extra room in our house until September when space in the suite becomes more available. )Will is a baker.,cabinet maker,farmer. I(Vicky ) am an artist. We have organic growing, an art studio, a bakery where we make organic bread for the farmers market. We have a house we are finishing renovations on. to become a b&b/retreat. We have chickens, dogs cats and visiting grandchildren. We have a man we rent land to who has a cottage on our land. He is a landscaper. And has done much work with invasive species of plants here on the island. we also have a retired friend with many skills that has a trailer He loves to grow food with us and makes bagels in the bakery. Helpers will stay in a private apartment with a bathroom and fully equipped kitchen. It is an open space studio apartment with no private sleeping quarters. There is a queen bed and futon couch underneath it. We provide food (organic as much as possible). We try to have the evening meal together at least three times a week. Vicky has celiacs so we are gluten free.(except for Will's amazing breads, cinnamon buns ,bagels and date squares every weekend) We are needing help with planting, weeding , mulching, watering ,stacking wood, clearing brush, carpentry if you have the skills,painting chicken coops, making pathways, general cleaning up Etc etc. It is a beautiful property with two ponds and woods. We are within biking distance to town and fairly close to the base of mount Washington.
