My property is sitting on 4 acres of garden and is very peaceful. We have an organic, and semi organic garden, bordered by a river and two ravines and is situated in the middle of section 5 of the Dominica's Waitukubuli trail. We are 45mins from the capital Roseau and a mile and a half from the village of Castle Bruce. To get to the sea is a healthy 25 minutes walk. Wireless access to the internet is available if you bring your laptop/ipad/phone.

Take a 6-10 minute bus ride to the Emerald Pool, which is one of Dominica's most photogenic destination. Only 15-20 mins in the other direction is the kalinago territory which is most commonly known as the Carib Territory and is well known for their basketry skills, that have been passed down through the generations.

This is truly a nature paradise for every level of hikers. Waitukubuli National trail is the only long distance trail in the entire Caribbean consisting of 14 segments ranging in difficulty. The entire distance is 115 m... more inside

Thank you to all you wonderful people who responded to my request. Would so love to invite you all to stay and visit Dominica; however I have a couple staying at the house for now.
Wishing you all abundant blessings
Valina




Anyone out there wanting to visit Dominica? No, not the Dominican Republic; the little island between Guadeloupe and Martinique (which was hit by hurricane Maria 2 years ago!) yes, that's the place.
Anyway I have a comfortable home and am looking for a house sitter, no set time limit, I am flexible and open. So please do get in touch if this sounds even half way interesting to you...I have had some lovely people from helpx stay and they have all been wonderful.
I would ideally love to have someone who likes gardening but like i said we can talk.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Go well, stay safe, be happy

Living an eco-friendly lifestyle utilizing solar power, collecting rain water and eating from the land.

HURRICANE MARIA UPDATE:

Our site unfortunately suffered severe damage during the passing of Category 5 Hurricane Maria on the night of September 18th 2017. All 5 wooden structures including 2 homes, 2 guesthouse cabins and our school space were totally destroyed and the Family Tree community project has been put on hold. We lost absolutely everything from our floorboards to our solar panels including our fridge, oven, furniture, mattresses, kids toys, clothes and, most heart-breakingly, all our books and 90% of our tree and garden crops.

WHAT WE DO STILL HAVE!!
- Natural spring water source
- Double vault compost toilet (minus the walls and roof.... for now!)
- Tool shed with temporary roof - and most tools still operational
- A bunch of scrap lumber
- Seeds and the means to harvest some basic organic produce
- Herbaceous plants
- Our cow and her young calf (conceived within days of the storm...), 3 dogs and 2 cats :-)
- A fiercely motivated energy to restore our piece... more inside

ROOTS FARM, DOMINICA, WORK EXCHANGE OPPORTUNITY

Not certified but using organic standards, on Sept. 17, 2017, Roots Farm was growing diverse fruits, roots, vegetables and herbs at two lovely mountainside locations in Cochrane, Dominica for predominantly retail sales within Dominica. After a decade and a half of investment --mostly 80 hour weeks and all of our savings -- and despite severe setbacks from 2015 TS Erica landslides, the farm’s future finally looked bright and right around the corner. The fruit trees were poised for their first commercially successful year (avocados in Oct., citrus Nov-March, cocoa, soursop, sugar apple, mangosteen, pineapples and many more varieties at their respective natural times throughout the year. Large plantings of root crops (yams, dasheen, tannias) looked good for Dec-Feb. harvest and sales. Vegetables and herbs were still in the ground, but were to be phased out in favor of the incoming fruit and root crops.

Then, Sept. 18, 2017, Category... more inside

An old estate damaged by Hurricane Maria, currently under repair. A huge property that has very overgrown gardens, also damaged extensively. Previously a multi-generational residence, now home to 'man of the house' while others take shelter off island :(
He could use help but is almost to busy to direct, so ideally helpers would be independent & adventurous who don't mind finding their way and roughing it!
