Avalanche Ranch is breaking the mold at the end of the road in Homer, Alaska. We are looking for volunteers to work with us on our organic high tunnel heirloom tomato, pepper and cucumber farm plus a cut flower market! and our raised bed full of championship mondo veggies. We are battling a bunny outbreak-all part of the cycle-but it is challenging. Lots of wolves tho...We offer room and board and both are fun! A original 1938 homestead log cabin and all the salmon you can eat! Plus the veggies. We are interested in creating food security, finding a way to grow sumptuous salsa and getting slugs drunk. Lots of digging, planting and figuring things out. A exquisite setting overlooking Kachemak Bay. We want to hear your ideas.

This sounds pretty amazing. I just finished my first week of WWOOFing at the Morning Star Ranch and I am already having garden withdrawals. I'm digging my own 12x14 garden in my backyard until I can get back out to a farm again! Your farm sounds like an awesome relic! I love salmon!

Let me know what kind of arrangements we can make.

Hi there! I'm a traveler from Minnesota WWOOFing about Homer and I came across Avalanche Ranch in my farm searches! This place sounds fantastic! I was wondering if you had any WWOOFing opportunities  over the months of June or July? I have a lot of experience farming and gardening sustainably and have WWOOFed and planted vegetables up and down the north and south islands of New Zealand. I have also done work for accommodation at youth hostels in New Zealand and Germany, I am an excellent cleaning hand!  I am a college student studying journalism and ecological anthropology and have worked as an intern at an urban farm for a year, promoting sustainable, urban agriculture in low income neighborhoods. I love gardening, farming, kayaking, being in the water, laughing, conversing, learning and exploring! I would love to come explore and WWOOF at Avalanche Farm!

Thanks for reading this novel!

Your reputation preceeds you. Coincidentally, I will be arriving in Homer mid-June on invitation to meet the owners of some cabins and look into a potential property management position. I also intend to sightsee and do some camping, and had made a mental note to check out the place where they grow things in tunnels. Would you be open to a visitor? Beside simply being curious, I'm a longtime permaculture enthusiast with a broad background in many homestead skill areas, so perhaps I can help you out in some way if I don't become immediately employed up there.
