The Experience

Help start a Farm by building the Infrastructure needed to grow veggies, berries, grapes, fruit trees, chickens. Plz know that we are not a growing working farm yet. We seek volunteers to help with homestead painting, farm building tasks for irrigation, Carpentry, fencing, concrete laying, solar energy, trellises for fruit vines. Our 2.5 acres is on a hill so lots of retaining walls need installation. Experience is preferred, But not required

Lisa and Derek, I am so grateful to have met you! Considering life’s unexpected circumstances, they both are so compassionate, caring and understanding. Great mentors and knowledge of local community. There is nothing more to ask for when you arrive to their property- comforting, safe and open-minded! I hope to come back and will always have in mind the life long relationships created in such short time!!
