In August 2014, we are going to begin our global village project in Taichung, Taiwan.

Area: British ColumbiaWe are a little family of 4 (Oliver, 32, Meike, 37, Emil, 3, and Eva, 1) who are seeking connection to the land and community. We value sustainability and want to live a satisfying, healthy and creative life. We have just bought a piece of property with the intent of starting an organic farm and forming an ecovillage. We have moved here in May 2012 and have started to establish our homestead with the help of many wonderful volunteers. Meike is a massage therapist and Oliver is a filmmaker by trade. We are located 15 minutes outside of Greenwood, BC. 142 acres (previously clear cut) on a mountain in the forest with Jewel Creek running through it. It is surrounded by crown land and has trails all around. 3 km to Jewel Lake with a nice beach, swimming, and boating, in a wilderness setting. We provide lunch and dinner on the days you work, feel free to take days off to explore! We eat mostly vegetarian and organic and in the summer lots from our own garden. Sorry we can not accommodate vegan diets. Breakfast and snacks are your own responsibility and you're welcome to use the outdoor kitchen that has running water and a fridge. You would have opportunities to learn the following skills: organic/ bio-dynamic gardening, herb-craft, canning, preserving, bread baking, beer-brewing, Permaculture, natural building methods, using heavy equipment (tractor, excavator), wood working skills (including the use of hand tools, chainsaw, and sawmill), animal husbandry, and many more. We are incorporating Permaculture principles: zoning, swales, terraces, composting, humanure, mulching, rainwater catchment, hugelkultur, just to name a few. We are also helping new members of the community build natural homes designed to minimize ecological disturbance. We use building material sourced from our land as much as possible. We are big fans of cob buildings and round houses. We are producing our own solar power and are planning to set up hydro systems. We look forward to meeting many cool people and are excited about what we can accomplish!
