New opportunities to help get you unstuck

Do you want to live simply on the land, grow healthy food, and experiment with new ways to better live on earth? Do you think you have to work “in the system” for many years to save money to follow your dreams? Would you rather just go for it? Maybe you’d just like to go on an extended live/work staycation? Here are some live/work opportunities to check out if you want to get your organic groove on sooner rather than later.

Posted May 17, 2015 – Arizona remote off-grid farm

Old timer (in his 70s) is looking for help on a remote off-grid “old-school” organic farm on an inholding in the Tonto National Forest about 2.5 hours from Phoenix. (To get there you need a 4X4 or a horse, or hike in). The owner has been living and farming here for 35 years. There is solar power, a veggie garden, a vineyard, various farm fowl, and more than 100 fruit and nut trees. Produce from this year-round farm is sold at the local farmers market and local restaurants. The owner is also an expert in wilderness survival and primitive skills, an herbalist, and natural healer who produces a line of herbal remedies made on the farm. No experience necessary. The ideal candidate is willing to stay for several months minimum, is respectful of an elder’s ways and ideas, and has a deep desire to learn earth skills. No drugs or smoking allowed. In addition to learning, you get food and lodging in a private yurt or cabin. Someone who could stay several months or longer would be ideal.

Posted May 11, 2015 – Live and Learn in Costa Rica for $12 a Day

Do you love chocolate? A biodynamic/agroforestry centered farm in Costa Rica wants to hear from individuals interested in practicing their Spanish skills while living and working in a beautiful and rugged tropical environment where chocolate is grown and processed. They also grow avocados, beans, corn, oranges, mangos, lemons, pineapples, squash and extensive vegetable/herb gardens. Other things, like furniture building and various art projects happen at the farm, and there always experiments in sustainable living going on. Participants must stay at least three months and work at least 5 hours six days a week. Afternoons and Sundays are free. You get learning opportunities, three great meals a day (including a daily chocolate treat), and accommodations for $12/day.
