Enjoy a stay at a 40 acre permaculture, nursery and farm, located south of Molalla, Oregon. We are working on establishing full circle sustainable systems so that we require little to no input to feed our animals, soil, plants and ourselves. Educational opportunities ranging from nursery work (the propagation by seed, cutting, grafting, layering etc.), agriculture work (growing vegetables and fruit for csa boxes, designing and establishing food forests, permaculture maintenance and harvesting methods), livestock work (learning how to feed & care for chickens and other animals with little grain &permaculture methods), construction work (learning how to sustainably build pole barns, ponds, swales, chicken coops, and other structures). Our farmís many microclimates give opportunity to learn to cultivate food in sun, shade, wet, or dry climates etc.
We ask that helpers be available for five 4-5hour days/ week. Additionally, helpers would do their share of cooking and dishes for meals and keeping up on cleaning of their private space and communal areas.
