UPDATE: Help immediately needed with greenhouse and garden work!

I am a small plant nursery located on the historic boardwalk of beautiful Seldovia, Alaska off the Kenai Peninsula. We are a remote village accessable only by boat or air. I raise the majority of my plants from seed and use no chemical pesticides or herbicides. I also manage several public gardens in town and my own garden in which I grow many vegetables.

Pioneering a new wilderness homestead/lodge in remote Alaska, with self reliance & sustainability, minimalism, and off-the-grid example being the main goal. Looking for helpers to assist during the '18 summer season... with daily activities, wilderness camp/homestead development(s), misc. tasks. Location is very, very remote, accessible only with small aircraft and/or jet boat. Virtually all aspects of living/working/food gathering/etc are a hands-on, "old school" process. The site does have "perks" like generator electricity, solar, well water, and satellite internet, but being an active/practicing minimalist is a must.

Looking for a mature person or couple that is just getting established in Anchorage, or staying here for a few months at a minimum, to be caretaker of a guesthouse anytime of year. I am offering preference to those who have a driver's license and transportation, as I will be leaving a vehicle for you to use. I am looking for someone who has owned or taken care of a house or farm, as I am converting this place into a homestead.

We are building a tiny house, remodeling a bathroom and a few bedrooms, painting the house and doing some landscaping.

The house is located in a wooded area in the city of Anchorage. I rent out part of the home as a guesthouse to tourists and it needs to be cleaned a few times a week. I also have a rental downtown. I hope to have the condo buttoned up and rented out long-term while I'm gone.

The guesthouse cleaning schedule is 10am-3pm (between check-out and check-in,) but we can coordinate days off in advance, or make up for it when you work more. ... more inside
