Area: Nova ScotiaWe are Tyler and Zenovia and we live in one of the many beautiful places of the world. We love to: eat well, ride bikes along our coastal highway, play, eat great food, walk in the woods, work hard in the gardens, eat delicious, fresh foods, have bonfires, listen to music, make fresh juices and superfood smoothies, drink good beer, ferment many ferments, and sleep until the sun rises over the bay. We live in rural, South Shore Nova Scotia overlooking the beautiful St Margarets Bay. Our home is across the road from the ocean and is close to ocean beaches, lakes for swimming, cycling routes and hiking trails. The nearest town is 10 km away and the capital city, Halifax, is a 45 minute drive. We live on 1.5 acres with extensive gardens and we are building a retreat center in health and wellness. On this journey there are many interesting and creative opportunities especially in the realms of gardening and making food to sell at the local farmer's market.
Area: OlymposThe Bar is a world famous open air bar located at a Tree houses (Olympos, Turkey). It is run by a friendly and hospitable team of Turks. The Bar is open from 11pm to 3am every night. People come from near and far to party hard to the resident DJs' music. The Treehouses, where volunteers will be staying, is a 15-20 minute walk to the beautiful Olympos beach. There is access the beach as people pass through the heritage listed ruins of the ancient Lycian pirate city.
Area: British ColumbiaI really do mean Road's End! 15km of gravel road ends at our farm of woods, meadows and gardens near Williams Lake, BC. Road's End was the dream of two friends who both grew up in this area, spent ten or so years in various cities around Vancouver before deciding we wanted to get out of cities for good. We volunteered on farms around BC before returning to where I was born to begin our own farm. Chris has since moved on to other pursuits, though still visits from time to time, and I, Terri, am now running this business on my own! This will be my sixth growing season, my second season on my own. I am a woman in my early thirties, and I am excited to be a small business owner making a small difference through local food in my community! My partner, Curtis works seven days on and then has seven days off and will be helping around the farm sometimes when he is home. We are here because we want to do our small part to help heal our planet. Our garden is over an acre and this year the plan is to do a better job with growing more in this space. While not certified we use biodynamic practices and low-energy techniques, working towards developing sustainable, low-input systems that work with nature, not against. I have downsized on animal production this year, so some of my animal plans have changed and there will not be a large flock of chickens or cattle or pigs until possibly next year. (Usually, to provide manure for the garden we will raise a large flock of laying hens as well as a small herd of cashmere goats. We also usually raise a few pigs and cell graze a herd of cattle using movable electric fencing that allows us to provide these animals with a good life while growing good meat and increasing the fertility of the land). For now we have 2 beautiful dogs, three cats, two rats, two ducks, two horses (unrideable, but friendly), a small flock of cashmere goats and one young indoor/outdoor goat. Good food is very important to us and most of our meals consist of vegetables from our garden, homemade breads and our own pork, chicken and eggs as well as grass-fed beef from a local ranch. Vegetarians and vegans are of course welcome, but will have to do some cooking for yourselves. The log house is very comfortable but quite rustic. We have a phone and intermittent internet but no television (we do own one for watching movies from time-to-time) and no cell phone reception. Our house is powered by solar electricity. The stars are incredible out here with no city lights or even close neighbours, and the only noise is that of the birds and other local wildlife. We love this solitude, but be prepared if you're used to city living; some people find the isolation a bit too overwhelming. I go into town twice a week to sell my vegetables at the farmers' market and the new growers' co-op and you are welcome to come with me to market. I also run a CSA or "box-a-week" program. I am growing quickly and am very involved in the local food movement in our community. And while we are a bit out-of-the-way many travellers and friends find their way out to the end of the road and we are rarely alone out here in summer. There is a wonderful movement towards sustainable living and eating happening in the world and we are excited to be a part of this positive change. Every season is different, and I still am not sure what 2014 will bring. I have some big decisions to make regarding the market and how I sell my vegetables. This is a small community and was built with a focus on industry (mining/logging), it can sometimes be difficult to get people to realize the importance of local food. We've tried a lot of different approaches over the years, but it may be that this town isn't ready for a vibrant farmers' market quite yet. This season my focus will be on the box-a-week program. I have yet to decide whether this will mean delivery or if I will still participate in market as a pick-up point for veggie boxes. Because there are so many changes happening this season, I need helpers who are committed and excited about helping to build something amazing! I love this life, though it really isn't for everyone. Helpers who love being outside and who are generally positive, easygoing people seem to have the best time. We are looking for interesting and interested people who would like to help out and learn in a relaxed environment but who are also independant, hard-working and don't mind the isolation. What you get out of your stay with us will be entirely up to you. Accommodation is modest but comfortable and includes either a room in the house, a large, comfortable rv or camper van. We look forward to meeting you.
