Educational, Garden-Share, On-Site Living Opportunity Available at Sharon's Natural Gardens - Delmar, DE

Educational opportunity for a single person to live on site year round at Sharon's Natural Gardens in Delmar, DE. Individual would pay for utilities and their own transportation and expenses. No salary.

We would have an interview period and then a trial time to see if it is a good fit. This is not a production agriculture situation. We have a private room in the garden. House privileges and gardening access to foods would be included. This may work for a retired person, an artist or writer, or independent person with an interest in biodynamics, seed saving, homesteading, and gardening. The person should be fit and capable of helping in the gardens. Anyone with tractor or horse farming abilities would be given special attention.

The room has electricity, but no plumbing. It comes with an air conditioner, electric heater, & TV. (No other furniture.) It is insulated with track lighting, a hardwood floor, and is lovely with a private drive. There is a hose in the back for water or solar shower and a composting toilet behind the shed. It is about 100 yards from the farmhouse.

There is a" no smoking" policy on the property that has been in place for over 20 years.
