Program Details

Helpers are expected to work about 20hrs a week in return for room and board. But you are always expected to tidy up after yourself. "Your mom does not live here." Days off can be from 2-3 per week depending on needs. If we can squish 2 days work together so you can get 3 or even 4 days off in a row to go on trips we will do everything we can to make that happen.


Activities & Shift

Help needed varies with the season and abilities of helpers but can be: working in greenhouse sowing seeds, transplanting, watering, inventory, etc. Helping at farmers markets with set up, take down and filling orders. Working in the fields digging, transplanting, weeding, picking, watering etc. General gardening on the homestead. Helping with household chores and cleaning. Conversing in Spanish if you "habla español"


Rules

No drugs or heavy drinking. We, your hosts, are very tidy and respectful, easy going people. As you will be living with us we are only looking for helpers who are also tidy, respectful and easy going.
We are omnivores. Please no Vegans or others with very strict dietary issues.

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
One of the highlights of the Worldpackers experience is the security. And we take that seriously. It is very important that all the conversations and confirmation steps are made through the Worldpackers' platform. By doing this, hosts and the travelers can review each other and get 24h support.
