My goal is to establish a sustainable food system here using permaculture techniques to create forest gardens. I've been here only a year and there isn't much here yet. But there's lots to do! The 2019 priorities include establishing the kitchen garden, continuing work on the pollinator gardens started last year, beginning work on transforming the orchard into a forest garden, experimenting with biochar and building soil, always building soil.

This is a very remote property. It is best for a couple or friends traveling together. Your own vehicle is a must. The Nolichucky river is close by for rafting and there is lots of good hiking.

You will be staying in an almost new studio apartment with a full kitchen, large bath, high-speed reliable internet, heat and air conditioning and a choice of beds depending on who you are traveling with.

I ask for 5 hours of work, 5 days a week. I provide basic ingredients for vegan meals. You do your own cooking. I will provide dried beans, whole grains, basic fresh fruits and veggies and basic condiments. This will be enough for healthy, hearty meals but it won't be anything fancy or processed. You are welcome to bring in whatever other foods you would like to eat.

Cell phones generally do not work here. You will need a VOIP solution to communicate. (Skype, What's App, Magic Jack, Facetime, etc.)
