Région: GaspéPLEASE, TOTALLY READ THE FULL PROFILE BEFORE INQUIRING, THANK YOU! Hi, We own a small company picking and processing wild mushrooms and plants. We are located in Douglastown, 25km away from the town of Gaspé, between Gaspé and Percé. It is a wonderful place for nature lovers (sea and forest, Forillon National Park,...). We live in the middle of a 55 acres forest, in a home-made wooden house. In the forest, but only 4km away from a beautiful sandy beach... We are also running a self-sufficient farm with rabbits, poultry, geese, sheep, cows etc...as well as an organic vegetable garden. We make our bakery, dairy products, etc... This year, we will go on with the construction of our workshop. We are also planning the construction of a new barn. We have a wide range of work from cooking to woodworking. We will need help to pick plants and mushrooms, to prepare the land (clearing, cleaning,...) and the new workshop, packing products, working in the workshop, cooking, gardening... Workawayers work with us from monday to friday, 7am to 5pm. It is mainly outdoor work, no matter the weather, so please take good shoes and some waterproof clothes. If you don't like the outdoor, we are definitely not the place for you ! Week ends are free (except if, sometimes, we have unexpected works, or mushrooms and plants picking to do !) so you can visit the region. We keep our week ends to stay in family while you are discovering the nice places around. Workawayers sleep in a nice cedar shed, in three wooden beds (ground sheets and sleeping bags required). The shed is also equipped with a wood-heated shower and dry toilet. If the shed is occupied, wwoofers sleep in a tent on a platform. See pictures. We eat together, of course. Vegetarians and vegans are welcome but have to prepare their meals. Important point : to avoid inconvenience we cannot hold a spot for you until we have received a confirmation. If you have not contacted us with your confirmation three weeks before your arrival, we may have to give up this reservation to other inquiring Workawayers. The whole family speaks french (we come from Belgium), but I also speak english and spanish. There are a lot of different things to do, and the atmosphere is great when everybody enjoy the time we spend together. You must be in good health, open-minded, autonomous, reliable and willing to do different types of jobs. The main idea is that you share a week or two of our life, so you could also help preparing the meals and, of course, you eat with our family ! We run a self-sufficient farm and garden, and a foraging company. That means we work outside most of the time, and some of the work can be tough. Here are some stuff we heard from tourist-workawayers who came here (even after reading this profile...): ``I agree to pick outside but I am afraid of spiders'' (we forgot to spray an insecticide, sorry) `` I love your farm but I don't want to work with animals'' (usually you have animals in a barn) ``I don't want to be alone in the woods`` (this guy watched too many gore movies) ``I don't have waterproof clothes, can I stay inside ?`` (Well, no!) ``There are a lot of mosquitoes here, I am intolerant`` (What do you expect here in the forest ?) ``Can I stay in bed later tomorrow as we worked well ?`` (and have your breakfast in bed ?) ``I agree to do this work, but if I am paid`` (Find a job then !) `` You work too much`` (Maybe this girl never really worked seriously) ``I want to work 4 hours a day, and have my afternoon free to go to the beach`` (No joke !) Please, don't come if you are not ready to really share our life and project ! We need open-minded and autonomous people, not part-time working people looking only for free accomodation and food. We have to deal with such problems on a regular basis, and it takes a lot of energy...civil servant minded people just don't fit here. Thanks for visiting our page. Gérard and Catherine

Région: Sunshine Coast, British ColumbiaOur Retreat is a 23 acre, water access only site of pristine wilderness on Nelson Island, in the mouth of Jervis Inlet on the Sunshine Coast. Our place includes a 3 acre private island and one of the only pebble beaches in the area with warm shallow swimming waters, deep water moorage and comfortable camping spots. We want to provide affordable, eco-friendly accommodations and a laid back vibe, for visitors to experience and the natural beauty and wilderness of the Sunshine Coast. We are completely off-grid and are trying to encourage sustainable eco-tourism. We use solar pv, rainwater collection and hope to be installing our wind mill this year. Over the past 18 months, we've constructed the main lodge, which is a 1,500 square foot wood framed Yurt with a communal kitchen / living area and some accommodations. We will also be erecting prospector tents, and a large tepee and regular 2/3 person tents to provide additional accommodations for paying guests and volunteers. With the help of our amazing volunteers, we've been able to get so much done, including cutting trails, composting toilets, drift wood stair ways and furniture, and the start of our veggie garden. We've still got lots to do before we open, including building decks and platforms, trails and access stairs, finishing carpentry work and we always need wood splitting for the fire. We're also building a website and have various art / gardening projects on the go. We are looking for volunteers who can stay for two weeks or longer, and a minimum of 25 hours a week in exchange for great food and lodging. We tend to have family style meals, and are keen to share cooking duties, so bring your "signature dish" with you.
