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.

Our hostel in Anchorage is tailored to travelers and outdoor enthusiasts exploring Alaska and itís surrounding glaciers, mountains, and backcountry. Our volunteer position is ideal for people who love the outdoors and meeting travelers from around the world. We are walking distance to cafes, restaurants, and night life. We start off all of our volunteers with a 2 week trial period to see if it's a good fit for both of us and then we can extend from there. Our volunteers provide 20 hours of service over 3-4 days a week in exchange for breakfast and accommodations. This allows 3-4 days a week to get out to explore Alaska.

Small homestead in the wilds of Alaska. On the grid but far from tame. We need help with chores likes gardening, animal care (as in 10 tiny puppies), carpentry, firewood cutting and trail building. Expect to have a family style experience. We have options for tents camping, bus camping or rooms in a house. We are flexible to the needs of different individuals. This is a wild and beautiful place 35 miles from the town of Haines.

In an effort to live a more sustainable lifestyle we are trying to grow our families food for the year. We would like to rely less on trips to town! But it's a lot of work, fun work.

We are looking for travellers looking for short term experience. We would offer accommodation and family style meals for a few hours of work on the property. Willing to accommodate to any schedule.

We hope to attracts adventurous people that want to experience rural Alaskan life.
