***This 2011 season we are extremely interested in hosting any skilled workers (fermenters, brewers, carpenters, herbalists, etc...- particularly folks that have experience building cob ovens. We'd love to have one at the farm!***
We are looking for volunteers who have a strong interest in learning to grow delicious food and become more self-sustainable while participating in an open-minded, socially-conscious community. No experience is necessary by any means (but always welcomed). We just expect folks ready to do (many) an honest hard day's work. Let us take a moment to stress the hard work- while it is almost always fun here the work can be backbreaking. So be prepared to get real dirty, sweaty and tired. Your time here will be spent planting, hoeing, weeding (a lot!), harvesting and any farm-related tasks we come across during your stay- and of course there is plenty of knowledge-sharing, storytelling and music-playing- so bring your stories, bring your instruments and let's spend part (or all) of the summer together!
We have one room available in the house itself and ample spots around the farm perfect for tent camping or barn squatting- your choice! All food is communal and meal preparation is shared.
Aside from our numerous farm projects we also experiment with fermentation here- e.g. kombucha, kefir, sourdough, ginger soda and cheese- and homemade bread is always available.
We have about 25 chickens that provide eggs for the household, some barn cats that roam the property, two peacocks and an absolutely fabulous Rottweiler named Carla. We are a rag tag bunch with a lot of work to do!
So if you think you wanna join us- drop a line, a phone number and let's talk about it.
