We are looking for someone to take care of our extensive garden & chickens (and maybe a cat) on Lummi Island while we are away this summer. We are 100% organic. Rain catchment system. Approximate dates: May-August 2018. In exchange we offer a fully furnished studio apartment which includes power, water, heat, internet and phone. In addition, you may have eggs, veggies and berries from the garden. You may sell excess veggies, eggs and flowers at the local Saturday market. There are many, many, many flowers (I used to have a flower business!). Also includes use of private beach and hiking trails. Perfect for student. We are looking for someone who is respectful of the land, animals and plants. References required.
Hello Nancy. As I am researching various spring/summer projects to get involved in, your family's needs and my plans and aspirations match fairly well for the same months/time frame. I am looking to head to a living/work/building/maintenance trade/exchange until the end of August. Mainly, to escape the heat of Las Vegas. I work as a consultant, 46, single and am seeking this type of work exchange you describe. Here's my email and LinkedIn page. I'll send personal info via email.

Also interested. Seems right up my alley. Lived in Chehalis and Shelton, WA doing much the same. Cared for 10 acre small farm--40 chickens, goats, pigs, dogs, garden, worked all large and small equipment. Was working overseas as a teacher until my mom passed and life got crazy. Been in a hold pattern here in CA caring for my dad but my sister has got involved--water & oil, so very interested. Seeking a opportunity from another member in northern CA which ends mid-May so timing seems ideal.
