We are at the beginning stages of creating a Biodynamic educational farm serving waldorf school students. We are seeking an individual or couple to do work trade (part time) in exchange for trailer housing on our beautiful, rural 80-acre ranch, for a minimum of 9 months. Other amenities include harvesting from our Biodynamic garden and use of a shared outdoor kitchen and wood fired oven and our large barn.
The property has a secluded feel yet is 15 minutes from Sebastopol. Our ranch includes open meadows, wooded hills suitable for hiking, beautiful redwood groves, creeks, springs and a pond. It is home to a small herd of dairy goat, four pigs, chickens and a guard donkey. The main work will be milking and tending to our dairy goats. The remaining hours can be tailored to suit your skills and interests, and could include nursery work, farm site preparation, irrigation installation, annual vegetable cultivation, carpentry, trail work, school group teaching or administrative work.
At least one season of farm work and goat tending is preferred, but a willingness to learn will suffice. Negotiable work schedule. Some weekend animal husbandry shifts expected. Two week trial period and deposit required for completing the term of the trade. For further information or to apply, please text Willow Summer at 510-409-3214 or email to [email protected]
