Enjoy peace & serenity at PapaLani Farm (this means Heavenly Earth Mother in Hawaiian).
There are 13 acres - 3 acres producing avo, macnut, veggies, variety of fruits & herbs & 10 acres are wooded. We are working on becoming a fully sustainable farm....
The newly built cottage for volunteer interns off the grid with a catchment water system, solar system, propane refrig/freezer and an outdoor composting toilet.
The main farmhouse is a vacation rental with Nikki's living space hooked to that house. There is another eco-cottage on the property that is also a vacation rental.
I will be looking for the right 1-3 EXTREMLY RESPONSIBLE & MATURE people to help out and live in the new cottage here at Papalani farm from april to next november. Please read further to see if that might be you! I am looking for volunteers who are self-motivated, self-directed, hard working, honest, healthy, strong, positive attitude, mature, clean, quick learner, must be alcohol, cigarette, drug/drama free.
There will be learning available about CGNF (I am a certified teacher), value added products, plant identification, tree trimming, seeding, gardening, etc. I need someone who can look after the animals at times, pull weeds, pick mac nuts, plant gardens & trees, harvest gardens & trim trees & possibly clean the vacation rentals or other "odd" jobs.
I am pretty particular about how things are done so if you tend to be more on the spacy side, sloppy, have trouble focusing, completing tasks or following directions this is not the place for you.
I will provide your home space and produce (herbs,veggies,nuts & variety of fruits) from the trees/gardens & eggs from the chickens (when we have them) in exchange for 25 hours of your volunteer services.
Because the main house is a vacation rental the guests privacy should be maintained at all times and a peaceful & respectful attitude is a must.
We are 30 miles south of Kailua-Kona in a remote location (meaning no neighbors are visible) at 1600ft elevation. Buses go right by the house 2x/day for your transportation & they are only $2.
Beaches are between 5 miles -20 miles away & we are 60 miles from Volcano National Park. Volunteers will either be staying in the farmhouse with me or else in the eco-cottage.... if you feel you are a match please call or email me.
