We are currently considering HELPXERS for November 2019 through February 2020.
Our place is set in a beautiful wooded valley in southern Indiana,surrounded by the Hoosier National forest; so our place is a magical place, with lots of trees, birds, wildlife and natural beauty. We cherish nature here and give gratitude every day to Mother Earth. It is remote and isolated, with the nearest neighbor about a mile away. The closest small town with a convenience/gas store is 7 miles. To enter the property, a ford across a small stream, the Patoka River, must be crossed, or, if the water is up, a footbridge is available. It is extremely quiet, tranquil and peaceful here. We are located 48 miles west of Louisville, KY. Wi-Fi is available and the feed is via unlimited optic fiber.
We are a wife and husband who grow vegetables for personal consumption, and we freeze, dehydrate, sun dry and can for our own use and donate the excess. We do mapling during the season and manage our forest wit... more inside

Hi everyone,
Jenny and Alex here! We moved to Detroit in 2013 after living in Asia for 5 years. Alex is originally from California and Jenny is from Hong Kong. We met in Germany through an internship and later fell in love in a hostel in Spain while road-tripping through wine country. Alex has a background in tech start-ups in NYC and California while Jenny worked in marketing for L`Oreal in Hong Kong and Germany.
We LOVE to travel and have lived and adventured throughout Europe and Asia extensively. In 2013 we decided to move back to the US and thought we would end up in California but when we heard they were tearing houses down in Detroit we decided to check it out. As any open-minded traveler knows, a good place can often be distorted by the media so we decided to do a road trip to see the city for ourselves. After driving into Detroit we fell in love with the city! People here have a lot of pride and heart. There is a spirit of resilience and you can feel the energy as the ci... more inside

Who you are: You have some basic construction experience or are willing to learn, and you have an interest in environmentally responsible construction and/or green buildings. You’re a single person or a couple. Our place is not suitable for kids or pets.

We are on a 65 acre farm in North Pope County, Illinois and are virtually surrounded by the Shawnee National Forest. Having been on this farm for five years, we are still developing infrastructure and are continuing to plant in the orchard and various berries as well as establishing and expanding garden and crop areas.

We are a GMO, herbicide and pesticide free farm in all of our outdoor areas. As we are far away from "modern agricultural" property, we feel that we should have no problems with cross pollination of our crops with GMO's or damage/exposure from/to ag chemicals.

There are many projects currently in process or in the planning stages. This summer/fall we hope to get new water and electric lines ran to all the barns and the greenhouse as well as get a fiber studio framed in and get the finishing touches on the greenhouses.

Tasks on the farm are endless, so there are always things to do year round. Clearing brush, cutting wood, building fence, baling hay, sawin... more inside

Homestay in Southern Indiana seeks friendly and compassionate travelers

UPDATED!!!

We had big plans for this piece of property but life is changing in profound ways and I am unsure what the future holds. The interests and activities in my profile are still true but unfortunately, I’m becoming more of a spectator than a participant.

I am being evaluated for MS and getting wimpy quicker than expected. I can’t tolerate the heat or the sun nor can I walk very far. Some days I can’t walk at all. Thee Dr says I am a “fall risk” and I have fallen enough this summer that I agree with them!

My lifetime goal / dream of opening an antique shop is gone and all this inventory needs to go to. It looks like time to move back to town sooner than we planned, to a house with no stairs.

So it is time to simplify, steer back to mindfulness and try find a nice balance so I can relax and concentrate. I need to re-energize my Reiki skills, find my center again, work on eating be... more inside

Looking for helpers interested in remodeling homes. We buy ugly houses and make them pretty. We also need help in and around our own home. Happy to pay for additional hours of work as well. Willing to train anyone who is interested in learning. We ask for 4 hours of help per day, 5 days per week, in exchange for room and board, and then anything over the 4 hours would be paid time.

We ask that you do not prepare raw meat onsite. There are plenty of places to eat meat just 1/2 miles from the property. We are okay with fish and preparing seafood. Also okay for you to buy cooked meat and eat onsite, just no raw/uncooked meat (including raw chicken) products please. We make healthy meals for you while you are here, encourage you to make your own meals as our schedules are very hectic, or help in the kitchen with food prep.

Perfect for a Purdue University student!

Retired hubby and disabled wife need help with household maintenance and projects including (but not limited to...lol) deep cleaning, carpet shampooing, organizing collectibles and books for online or onsite (yard-type) sale, laundry (including helping at laundromat), clearing garage, painting, property repair, minor roofing and electrical, etc. Guest room and kitchen/fridge space can be provided.

We live minutes from downtown and are very close to West Lafayette/Purdue campus. Mass transportation and Amtrak are very nearby. Also bike-friendly area. Prefer someone respectful and friendly, of an age, and that is interested in an extended stay. Some projects may take more time than others but we can't imagine more than a few hours a day, max! Smoking and responsible drinking are great on the porch... Must like pets (2 dogs, 1 cat). International students welcome!
