We live in a small, off-the-grid, community on the west side of Kodiak Island, Alaska. It's a beautiful setting surrounded by both the Kodiak and Alaska Maritime national wildlife refuges. There's abundant wildlife and no shortage of projects to keep us busy. Activities center around working in a small boat, as well as tending the greenhouse, household chores, and generally keeping everything going. Help is generally needed late Spring, Summer, and early Fall. While a person(s) need not have specific abilities nor brute strength, he/she/they should have a good work ethic, be enthusiastic, healthy, and easy to get along with.
