There are times when my husband and I need extra help with chores and upkeep. We dig our wells, use solar pumps, and all sinks etc., are on gray water to feed the trees. We maintain our roads and the main house is all solar in a very remote region of the Chihuahuan desert adjacent to Big Bend National Park. Access is difficult to our property but well worth the effort; hiking, biking, boating in incredible country with tremendous views.
We want to create more organic gardens and at times have building projects including road maintenance, painting, well and solar repairs and maintenance, and vehicle mechanics. The closest small store & Post office are 10 miles away; the closest airport 250 miles and there is Amtrak train service to Alpine, the closest town, 90 miles distant.
For worker accommodation there are 2 1 bedroom travel trailers & a 2 bedroom mobile home. Depending on numbers, helpers will eat with us some meals and we will provide provisions for cooking. There is cell phone service and wi-fi.
A caveat: we are pacifists and do not allow firearms on our property.
