Area: AlbertaWe run an 80 acre, mixed, organic farm and organic food store just outside Lethbridge, Alberta about 1 hour east of Waterton National Park and the Rocky Mountains on the Alberta prairie. The farm is a busy place from April to November, tending the ALL organic strawberry fields, vegetable gardens, apple and raspberry orchards as well as taking care of the sheep and cattle on pasture. We are also in the process of completing three eco-buildings on the farm. They are built with light straw/clay construction and feature clay plasters on the interior and hydraulic lime stucco on the exteriors. One of the structures is a new organic food store/wood-fired oven bakery/alternative health center and it features a traditional Japanese joinery timber-frame. This summer we are planning to do a water bio-remediation project for our farm domestic water supply that will feature bio-sand and bio-gravel filtration, use of aquatic plants and trees and other innovative natural techniques to improve water quality. We hope this project will serve as a model for other farmers in this area that like us, do not have a well and must rely on surface water for domestic usage. We also have a unique metal roofing project we want to undertake this summer as well as lots of landscape work around the new eco-buildings. Additionally, we want to build Hugelkultur style, dry-stack boulder walled, raised mulch beds for tomato and greens cultivation. If you like the sun, outdoor manual work and want an opportunity to learn about organic agriculture, holistic health, eco-building and more, we are glad to share what we have learned over the last 18 years of operating this farm in exchange for reliable and enthusiastic help. We offer clean and spacious accommodations as well as ALL organic food. We welcome volunteers from any country but in particular have close ties with Israel and Japan. Please contact us if you are interested for a phone interview and to get more information.
