Dear Traveler,

We would like to welcome you to Saint Paul, Minnesota! We had wonderful experiences as HelpX hosts at our home in Norway (we moved back to the US in 2013) and would like to do the same here in the USA! We are centrally located between the Twin Cities with easy access to both downtowns via the new train system as well as many amenities within walking and biking distance (such as: http://www.comozooconservatory.org/attractions/gardens/sunken-gardens/#/info)

We would like to open our guestroom to people willing to help us with small tasks around our 1926 home. In exchange for a room and organic vegetarian meals we would like (4-6 hours a day) help with painting (all natural, non-toxic paints), cleaning, gardening, small remodeling projects, cooking and possibly child care (our daughter is 2). We can negotiate the terms based on your needs and ours.


We are travelers at heart and would love to hear about your adventures.

Hope to be meeting you soon! ... more inside

Come help out in the Bird Creek organic garden at Elk Ridge Ranch! We grow using only organic methods, and through a focus on crop and ecosystem biodiversity along with healthy and thriving soil, our gardens are a community of life! Not only are we continuously learning and open to new and great ideas, but there is always room for individual projects if an intern has the drive to create. We sell our veggies at the local farmers market twice a week - in Bloomington, IN and Louisville, KY, as well as use the fresh produce for juice in the elk ridge detoxifying cleanse programs. We try to cultivate not only the earth, but also a fun, interactive and educational environment for our interns and visitors.
