"As you enter this space may you receive the gifts you were meant to receive and give the gifts you were meant to give."

i own a beautiful organic farm/ranch in Mendocino County, Northern California and am currently transitioning it into a community farm. The farm is located just over a mile from the center of town and is easily accessible by foot or bicycle, I have nearly 20 Burning Man bikes of every shape an size that guests can use at their disposal. The farm has a number of structures on it including two barns, 3 garages/work shops, an in-ground swilling pool for cooling off during those hot summer days, a nice tree house and much more. There are currently 6 "hippie" buses parked on the farm that house guests, residents and farm hands. Im in the process of getting a few more. Each helper or couple will have their very own bus to stay in. The farms residential compound is surrounded by a 6' foot wooden fence and is very secure and private. There are horses that can be ridden and cows that graze in the number of pastures on the farm. I also have a beautiful vegetable garden that produces a wide range of organic veggies.

It's a community oriented farm and we also like to have fun, it's not uncommon that spontaneous dance and costume parties take place. We also go on evening sun-set bicycle rides around town and intimate Full Moon parties as well. Just because the work may be challenging at times doesn't mean we can't enjoy ourselves and have fun at the same time. There are a number of areas that are great for yoga and meditation when a more tranquility setting is needed.

If arriving via bus the closest bus station is in Willits, an hours drive away. Both Greyhound and Amtrak bus services Willits. I can pick you up from either of the two stops.

I need help with the following projects:

^planting and maintaining the organic veggie garden including seed starts.
~Help with painting of a number of buses and "hippie" them out. Artists needed.
~Making curtains for each of the buses.
~Design, refurbish and furnish each of the buses.
~Complete the construction of the tree house.
~Design and build an outhouse/composting toilet.
~Garden help in the veggie patch; starts, planting, watering, weeding, harvesting & eating.
~Wooden privacy fence building, extension of current fence.
-Work & train the horses.
~Finishing work on the greenhouse.
~Meal preparation (good cooks wanted)
~And much more

Guidelines:

~NON-SMOKERS ONLY!!! (zero tobacco consumption on property). Cannibis consumption (legal in Californis) is acceptable to as long as it is not combined with tobacco, no exceptions.
~Volunteers must be at least 21 years of age due to the nature of my farm meaning no one under the age of 21 will be considered, no exceptions.
~No country music! LOL

Hugs From Covelo!
