My boyfriend are in our mid twenties and are visiting friends and family in NY this weekend and thought while we are in the beautiful East Coast might as well do something we really love- taking care of this gorgeous earth (where the weather is better) and help someone with their home! I've worked on a farm for a week through work away and I have several years experience in home repair. My boyfriend is a hard worker, he really likes gardening and land prep. I'm more on the construction side but we are both eager to learn and practice the gaps we have to fill! I've worked on a farm last summer in Texas...so I know I can handle whatever you've got to toss at me...it got pretty hot last year down here. We are willing to just help out a family or individual who needs help, we wanna play in the dirt and learn for our own house we are hopefully starting this fall as it cools down. We would like to stay with you and be fed in exchange for work and we are okay with camping. Let me know if you need some fun loving hard working hands!

I'm not sure where you are or where you're headed, but we're in need of help here in Northern VT for the next three weeks. A variety of great projects at a permaculture research and education facility- built by hand with sweat equity and debt/ trust fund free!
Check out the location by searching 'Prospect Rock Permaculture' to see if the logistics of travel, etc. will work for you.
