   I am 27 years old. I own 5 acres, and a tree service, construction, and landscaping company here in Washington State. I have been homesteading here for 3.5 years.
    I am working towards buying more land. Business is going great! We are building an off-grid farm, wilderness sanctuary, and hippy/healing retreat.
    Right now, it is mainly just me, building this from scratch. I am working on the first tiny house now. We should have a well by next year. We currently get water from the neighbor's and we harvest from a local artisan well. We have 2 seasonal streams that dry up in summer, but are already flowing strong again.
     There are elk, deer, coyote, foxes, wood peckers, owls, eagles, Hawks, and much much more.
    An intern/apprentice could start with a 1 month agreement. 2-3 meals a day, plus housing in exchange for 3 hours work each day. If a lot gets done, there is a 50$ a week stipend, and an opportunity to make 15$/hr for one day a week doing landscape work, and another 100-150$ for a day helping do tree work.

      The right person could make 1000$+ a month while helping to build a farm,  and living cost free.
     Additionally, I am willing to pay 1/2 tuition for martial arts classes if interested, and bring you to classes, as well as festivals and ecstatic dances I regularly attend.
    There is a gas station 3 miles away and a Safeway, Walmart, and Fred Meyer within 15 min drive. National Forest a few miles away, a lake within 5 miles, and several 100+ft waterfalls nearby.  And a my Rainier view!

      There is lots to learn from carpentry and construction, to tree service work and milling lumber, to farming, hunting, fishing, automotive work, and much more.
   Really we are working towards a village/tribe/community, aiming to create art and shape culture while learning to live in harmony.
    I have a lot of connections and can help you get your own piece of land in time.
