Silver Leaf Farm

14 acres on a small river where salmon run, partially forested, about 1 acre being currently being cultivated. This is our second year farming. My family has had the land since 1984 and have had many gardens on the land, but this is our first large scale venture. We plan to be a CSA farm and are in process of becoming established. We grow a large variety of vegetables, herbs and flowers. We plan to become a sustainable living and learning center.

Stay at least 3 months, although shorter time frames will be considered, volunteers are needed as soon as possible, March through October. We currently have camping spaces available, and 2 rooms and are building more spaces for people to stay. Non-farming activities include alternative construction(shipping container, cob, straw bale,) green energy(wind, solar,hydro,) permaculture and natural building workshops, home cheese making, ferments, baking... We will be having several workshops on our land this summer, including cob over/rocket stove construction, earthen floor construction, and basic permaculture. Volunteers are expected to work 28 hours a week in exchange for facilities and dinner, other meals are your responsibility. There will be produce available depending on the time of year, and garden plots available for growing your own food. Near historic Astoria on the Columbia River, with lots of cafes and shops, a short distance to Long beach, America's longest beach, lots of hiking near by, the city of Portland, known for sustainability and being a progressive hub(and its farmers markets) is a two hour drive. We have several vehicles going to multiple locations weekly that folks may catch rides with. We speak English, some Spanish. Children are welcome, pets are a case by case basis, we already have several dogs, chickens, a horse and cats. All diets are welcome!
