Kimmy and I have had several awesome experiences as guests traveling abroad and working on farms in exchange for room and board.
We made chevre in Brittany and tended Icelandic sheep in Copenhagen.
At Triple Green Jade Farm, it’s our turn to be the hosts!
Now that we have our own little “broke-down” farm, we are going to open up our home and hearth to willing volunteers who want to come help bring an old farm back to life starting this Summer and Fall.

Help us spread the word by sharing this link with friends and family whom may be interested.
We’ve already had a few volunteers contact us. We have a permit to build two small seasonal cabins and we’ll have those ready in time for our volunteers arrival.
Stays are arranged upon contacting us and could be for a few days up to a few weeks for the right people.
Eco-Cabin Building Workshop
Since we need to create accommodations for our volunteers and friends, one of the projects we’ll have in May will be an eco-cabin building workshop.
I kicked around the idea with a few folks already and it seems that the desire is there for a workshop like this.
I’m not an expert on eco-building, but I do have a lot of experience with it. It’s been a big part of my life.
I’ve taken courses in cordwood masonry and timber framing with Rob Roy up at Earthwood Building School.
Plus I built a pretty slick chicken coop a few years ago.
Weekend Work Parties
Inspired by this idea from Full and By Farm, we’re going to also host some work party weekends.
That way anyone can just stop by on a Saturday or Sunday and spend a few hours or whatever they can spare to help us out with a project or two.
We’ll provide a tasty lunch and cold drinks to anyone who lends a hand.
