We have a 5 acre permaculture homestead and Organic local nursery in rural Northern California. Our place offers a unique opportunity for people to learn about and experience a mature and dynamic fruit/food forest filled with an immense diversity of plants that also integrates animals into its system.  We are looking for 1-2 people to join us to care-take this land.  We are asking 8 hours a  week + 3 days a week of chores and occasional caretaking, in exchange for a place to live , a share in a large vegetable garden, fruit orchards and fresh milk and Eggs.  The available Cabin is a small rustic natural building with electricity full kitchen, wood heat 2 bedrooms and out door shower.

There is an opportunity to learn plant propagation and other skills but would be a separate agreement.

We are looking for people with some country living skills, experience caring for animals and rural living experience.  We would like a 1 year commitment after a short trial period to see if both parties feel we are a good fit.  We would love to find someone who wanted to stay long term.

If you are interested please email
The only cure for that is hours of television radiation. And this tiny ad:
Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 cars
