A one to four week opportunity to live and work on a budding Permaculture project, at a Taoist Sanctuary, outside the town of Snohomish, Washington. The property is 30 acres in total, with forest trails, ponds, streams, and mountain views. We will be focusing our efforts on developing about an acre of land for growing Chinese herbs and vegetables, planting a fruit and nut orchard, as well as naturalizing Chinese herbal plants and trees as appropriate, throughout the various diverse micro-climates. Activities will include Plant propagation, developing terraces, building hugelkultur beds, pond improvement, light carpentry, mushroom cultivation, forest farming, simple fence building utilizing bamboo & saplings, and forest trail maintenance. We have bees arriving in the month of April!
There will also be opportunities to learn from a master nurseryman (40 years experience) as well as learn about Chinese herbs and their cultivation.
April 1st through 30th, Possibly other times throughout
the spring and summer.
There are several options including; Dorm, Tent, Separate building, and trailer.

I would love to volunteer and help. I have worked many different trades, but mostly underground utilities and running a shovel. I am currently working on starting a paradigm Shift community in eastern Washington. I would love to help cultivate your growth. I have all my gear to live. Thank you. Much love. Chad Teverbaugh
