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.
