We are always looking for farm caretaker/handy men/gardeners and volunteers with work skills: metal and wood especially! Stipend for long stay helper with needed skills. Special opportunity for successful grant writer...working to fund sustainable living education center and some wonderful art on the farm.

Dandelion Farm is a magical place,located on 190 pristine acres in North California, about 2 1/2 hr. drive from San Francisco. Here you will find a deep serenity, both playful and more profound inspirational ART intended to enhance sustainability and lift the spirit of all. We have lived sustainability here for 38yrs as research and demonstration for the sake of the future of humanity and nature.
Dandelion Farm is NOT for profit. We have practiced "NO TILL" for the last 10 years. Some areas are evolving into forms of permaculture that might better be called "tending nature". Less and less is done that intrudes upon nature, while encouraging nature to work with and for us and achieve an ecological balance.

Organic gardens,fruit/nut orchards, berries, grapes. Passive solar construction and natural buildings, ponds, greenhouses, alternative energy and good people creating a very unique sustainable living education center. Do see our website.

Many wonderful people have helped with farm projects from our unique gardening style to farm maintenance, natural building, welding, painting, sculptures, mosaics, etc. in exchange for their stay on Dandelion Farm. For less urgent skills with work and/or volunteer experience and references we offer room and food stipend.

Please email us if you are interested in volunteering. Tell us about yourself, age, experience, interests, and time available.

Volunteers are chosen based on their skills and experience, length of time available to help, as well as freedom from drugs, alcohol and tobacco use.

We practice tolerance and support for differences of race, spirituality, and sexual choices.

Our farm is always producing food (sometimes way too abundantly) and natural buildings, but our focus is in serving higher purposes altogether with all we do. Playful, happy, and inspirational art are always in progress as a sign of this orientation.

We have MUCH to do here. Helping hands and hearts are a huge addition to the good we can do here. But we also have a massive amount of practical knowledge to offer you. We hope you want to learn ways that can help your future and the world`s at the same time. Come gain means to transform your life and the world!
