HANDLER :
We are looking for someone to help with our off grid sled dog kennel in the heart of the Copper River Valley for the 2020-2021 racing season. Ideally we are looking for someone that wants to stay the whole season, Oct-April.

The kennel is located off grid, and it seems there is always work to do. The ability to work a chainsaw and split wood is strongly desired, but not absolutely necessary. This is a PHYSICALLY DEMANDING POSITION, you will be hauling buckets of water, dog food, firewood, etc. I cannot stress this enough, we need somebody around here to split LOTS of wood, and is in decent physical shape with the desire to perhaps leave here in better shape. Trail work is another job around here that would take up a lot of your time. This requires riding the trail with ATV or snow machine and clearing brush with appropriate tools.
If we are away racing the dogs you most likely have to stay home and baby sit the other dogs, and keep the home fires burning. This also... more inside

Our jobs could be: landscaping, calking logs, sanding, yard work, cleaning, organizing, tech short. ; ) or cat & duck sitting. We also usually have some kind of creative project using reclaimed materials. This fall will be a large outdoor table made from vintage boat parts.

Hi we could really use some help for just a few days. We are nearing completion of our home in Alaska and are looking for 1-2 self-motivated individuals to help with the last push to completion. Basic yard work, carpentry, general maintenance and gardening is what we are looking for. We can provide room, board and internet in exchange. We have a small private bunkhouse on site for your stay.

We'd also love to show you the great Alaskan outdoors while you are here - hiking, rafting, kayaking, nature viewing, fishing and boating to name a few in some of the most beautiful places in the world.

Located 90 miles South of Juneau in the remote island village of Kake. Kake is home the Ttlingit Native Americans and 80% of the 450 residents here are from that descent.It is a substance village meaning a majority of the food is hunted, fished, or gathered here. We have no bars, restaurants, or coffee shops. There is one grocery store and we get restocked once a week by barge service.

To get here is a 45 min. flight from Juneau with flights daily or you can take the Alaska Ferry from Bellingham 3 nights traveling through the inside passage, a beautiful adventure.

Looking for someone to help a few hours a day with chores, gardening and building projects.
We try to grow a lot of our own food as well as gathering and putting up food for the winter. Currently build more garden beds and preparing to build greenhouse with recycled windows that have been collecting. Other building projects include sauna, chicken coop, hoop houses, art, community, etc...

Family owned business and we grow tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, edible hanging baskets and some other veggies in season. We also make fresh salsas as tomato production increases. We are near Homer, Alaska. We use organic methods and sea based soil amendments but we are not certified. We are in the process of building up our compost program to add to the greenhouse soils. Currently we need help with high tunnel completion, transplanting over 600 tomatoes, raised bed construction, planting and farmstead development. We need to finish a watershed/ veggie storage building, farmstand, baskets and bins for the market and storage.

We are a couple in our 30s with two small boys living off grid and off the road system in remote Alaska on a beautiful lake. We built a micro house with lumber milled on site with a chainsaw mill and hand tools and have built a garden and home on the side of a mountain with the lake as our front yard. Wilderness surrounds us and the hiking and exploring options are nearly unlimited. Canoeing or kayaking, glaciers within view of the house, mountain goats to watch, excellent fishing, gardening, skinny dipping in the summer are all available. We need help with chores around here to get this place into a more suitable condition. Things like building the trail from the water up to the house which currently is a very steep and narrow sidehill switchback trail that is not safe for anyone but sure footed young people! Or things like firewood hauling, splitting and stacking, soil hauling via bucket to raised beds, terracing the hillside for more garden areas, gathering and hauling lake mud a... more inside

Our mission is to increase food security and reduce hunger by creating access to food, offer meaningful employment opportunities for people of all abilities and provide programming that promotes cognitive, social, emotional, and motor skill development.

Gateway to the Arctic provides a variety of programming, including sessions for individuals who experience disabilities. Individuals receive agricultural training and become equipped with knowledge to raise and harvest crops and animals.

The resulting produce from the farm is donated to those in need or sold, with the proceeds directly benefiting programs that support the underprivileged of Alaska. As participants of our programs learn about agriculture, they also learn about themselves and their potential to make a difference in the lives of others.

SUMMER HELP:
(1) Help in our large community garden. We grow organic produce that is donated to the local food pantry to help increase the access to fresh produce in a low i... more inside
