Perfect for remote working professionals or those looking to get a taste of what living on an off-grid permaculture homestead is all about. The 30 day Farmer in Residency program at Starseed Ranch is an opportunity to truly connect with the land and leave the busy world behind. Stay in one of our eco-cabins built sustainably out of bamboo and reclaimed materials, while enjoying opportunities to volunteer on the farm, participate in weekly workshops, learn in the permaculture gardens, and explore our fruit orchards. Participants can also join in weekly yoga classes, Farm to Table dinners, enjoy farm fresh organic produce from the land and enjoy amenities on our 26 acre ranch.
