Greeting Guests to the Goshala, (farm animal haven).
We are located 2 hours west of Ithaca and 35 min from Alfred University.
It is a very rural area. There is a county bus system; the farm is about
1 mile from the bus stop. We need help at any time of year, summers
Accommodations available in a solar guest house, (electric use is
limited at this time). Expect adventures learning to live in a house run
by an off grid solar electric system. Vegetarian meals only, (we do
cook with the milk from our cows who receive lifetime protection,
however we do not allow meat, fish or eggs). Family atmosphere. No drugs
or alcohol use permitted on the property.
Common Sense, Self Determination, Love of Animals and willingness to be
ready to work by 6-7 am are of paramount importance. (Lots of free time
during the heat of the day, work resumes again in the afternoon).
Carpentry skills are a plus, but not necessary. Expect to help with,
(or live around), some light construction this spring and summer in the
solar guest house, (ie drywall, painting etc...) If you have
construction skills, occasional employment opportunities available.
