Laytonville Ecovillage Work Trade Opportunities
Work trade season is over for 2013 and will open again in Spring of 2014. Several people have already requested interest in work-trade and filled out applications. You’re welcome to email a request for an application ahead of time. Be sure to read through the work-trade description carefully. Note that we check references and for 2014 will require a minimum one-month stay.
The following description covers the basics for work trade responsibilities, expectations, and accommodations:
Work trade involves ten hours of work a week in exchange for living on ten acres of beautiful Mendocino County land and participating in weekend workshops on sustainability. We have an awesome eight-person community, community garden, chickens, outdoor solar shower, large outdoor kitchen, and are walking distance to town.
Work trade tasks include the following:
- General cleaning and organizing
- Making supply runs to town
- Brush clearing and trail maintenance
- Maintaining campgrounds
- Assisting with various construction projects
- Mowing, watering, and tending to lawn, landscapes & gardens
- Refining composting toilets, grey water, and hand-washing stations
- Making dump/recycling runs
- Orienting in-coming students
- Answering and directing phone calls for the Laytonville Ecovillage
- Assorted tasks as needed
Most tasks are light impact. You will not be expected to exceed your physical limits and be exposed to poison oak if you’re highly sensitive. There is a lot of poison oak on the land so if you’re highly sensitive please note this in your application. If you have any particular skills and talents to offer as part of your work trade please let us know. We’d love it if someone could build a chicken tractor this year!
Accommodations include use of outdoor kitchen, solar shower, common areas, use of Wi-Fi. Sleeping accommodations are currently limited to tent camping. We can provide you with a comfortable tent if you don’t have one. You’re welcome to bring a trailer or RV.
