Program Details

There can be a mix-and-match of skills offered and tasks done - - they don't all need to be in one category.

I offer basic food - - bread, eggs, fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes, coffee/tea, milk....basic condiments, spices, etc. legumes. We share food so we cook together or for each other - - this time isn't really part of the shifts - - since we'll both be doing it (unless 'cooking' is your specific work with me - - though I'm not really requiring that - - but if need be we can discuss prior). If you want meat, deli, 'delivery', pastries, desserts, candy, or other foods (ie. processed/packaged food) that's on you. You'll have a refrigerator, microwave in your space.

Activities & Shift

days and times to work is flexible but we'll discuss at the beginning of your time with me/us.


- NO other house guests are to be in house, ever.
- If you house/dog sit - - you cannot leave house more than 4 - 5 hours at a time - - dog care is top priority, though other tasks done as part of your stay would also occur during this time.
