Farm Description:

We are a not for profit organization whose mission is to provide an opportunity for adults and children to connect with nature and develop an ethic and base of knowledge to live sustainably. "Farm" is located in a historic rural community near Shreveport Louisiana. (40 minutes)(location on Google maps is incorrect) Total acreage is 200, consisting of woodlands and hay meadows, but only a few acres are used for vegetable garden and a few animals (chickens, horses, donkeys) and housing. We partner with a neighbor farm that is developing a CSA serving Shreveport. We have contacts with community gardens in Shreveport as well. We host camps in summer, and could use one or two volunteers. Work would involve gardening and animal care as well as mowing and trail maintenance. Also general home maintenance tasks. We expect 4-5 hours of work per day, about 5 days per week. Housing provided in a nice small guest home or mobile home on the property. Pets welcome, but no small children as we have a large pond on the property. No public transportation is available, but rides could be arranged. Shreveport has two colleges, theaters, museums, casinos and shopping. Meals could be shared with host family or prepared by volunteer in mobile home. Prefer English speaker, but we speak some Spanish and French and would like to learn Italian. We may require references, background check and drug screen. Length of stay is flexible from one week to several months.
