Área: OntarioI live in an off-grid straw bale house in the country just outside of the small town of Buckhorn, Ontario. I have 15 acres of mostly wooded land and I run my renewable energy business from my home (primarily solar installations). My son, who is 9 years old, stays with me sometimes (and sometimes with his mom). I am a ovo-lacto vegetarian and a non-smoker. I have a large dog (Bouvier de Flandres) named Frankie and a cat named Pumpkin. They are not vegetarian, but they don't smoke either (at least not that I have seen). I am looking for Workaway volunteers who are interested a placement of up to two weeks.
Área: Washington StatePLEASE NOTE: Due to The Carlson Complex Wildfire, the Internet is down in Okanogan County. Also, if you are not a US citizen, please read the note at the end of this page before you contact me. At age 50, I bought this land. It was a “rode hard and put away wet” decommissioned orchard. My 70 year-old friend, Betsy, and I began to transform the rubble into an oasis of health. WWOOFers and others came on board a few years later energizing the land with their sweat. This 7th year of transformation boasts production of hay, pasture-raised grass-fed beef, lamb, and chicken—all planted and raised as organically pure as possible; I’ve no intention of jumping "organic" labeling hoops. I oppose the ingestion of herbicides, pesticides, hormones or antibiotic additives and mindfully avoid GMO Frankenfoods. I grow most of our food and feed. Most people come here to learn about “sustainable” farming. From the standpoint of this being a closed-loop system, it’s almost sustainable. The animals provide nitrogen-rich “fertilizer” – though in quantities insufficient to eliminate the need for commercial fertilizer. Those who came before beat the land like a slave; it takes much longer to restore a body than to run her down. “Sustainable” would imply there is not a constant drain on financial resources. It is on this level the ranch falls far short of the goal. Perhaps we could meet that goal if I grew a high-dollar crop with low infrastructure and labor needs that produced sufficient yields. It cannot be done with hay, cattle, lamb and chicken. Seeing the writing on the wall, in 2012 I shifted my focus from trying to build sustainability from the land to building sustainability for the land.
