    Originally from Australia and after spending 20 years in the Sea to Sky Corridor (Whistler, Pemberton area), Sharon French ~ Wild Womyn Plant Wisdom, realized it was time to step off the hamster wheel and slow life down. I moved my life into the unknown, to the off grid back to the land movement in the beautiful Yalakom Valley. The Yalakom Valley River Sanctuary is near the confluence of the Bridge and Yalakom rivers. It's a safe sacred place to unwind, let go, unplug and tap into the inner self. The soothing sound of the river, the peace and the quite of the natural setting of the property will step you back in time. Sharon practices basic herbal medicine, collecting the foods in and around the land and makes, tinctures, oils, teas, infusions and dehydrates. The Yalakom Valley is surrounded by the Camelsfoot and Shulaps Mountain Ranges.

    The property is in the "beginning stage" of what I would like it to be. When time and finances open up this is when I can get the projects I would like created on the property. Eventually the property will have pigs, ducks, chickens, sheep, loads of berries, fruit trees and an organic garden. I like the idea of Permaculture and would like to study/learn more to be able to create a Permaculture setting at the property. The property consists of a piece of land down by the river as well as the top property which is up on the bench. The bench property has the sun and the river property has the water. The Plan is to somehow have Solar Power running from the top property down to the river property and to have water being pumped up from the river property, up to the top property.

    It would be great to have a like minded community to share the land with as it is a bit too much to handle for one person especially when i'm working. We have just had our first "2 day ~ Take a Walk on the Wild Side Retreat" which was focused around connecting to nature, plants and their healing properties, tincture and salve making.

    In the Spring of 2018 we converted a garden shed to a cabin that will be rented out from time to time and I'm open to the possibility of having it as a B&B.

    I live here with my cat Suzi Q.

    We are surrounded by nature and all the wildlife that live and pass by the property from time to time.

    Originally from Australia, i've been living in Canada now for 22 years. The Yalakom Valley River Sanctuary is located in the horseshoe of an off grid community with many worldly cultures, visiting or staying a while. We are neighbours to unceded ancestral and traditional lands of the St'át'imc people.

    right now would be help with invasive plants. also need help with fire fuel management. clearing land of debris. when the fire ban is lifted I would also need help burning the burn piles. there is wood that needs to be chopped and the gathering of fire wood.

    In the spring the projects are setting up of irrigation and hoses. In the fall it is preparing the property to be "put asleep" so to speak for the winter.

    future projects are finishing off a skool bus conversion to a tiny home and building a barn like structure to house pigs, sheep, hay, straw and feed.

    It would be great to create an outdoor shower/bath area by the cabin as well as in another communal area on the property. I've been collecting cast iron bath tubs and rocks from the high alpine to use as tiles for the outdoor setting. I have x 1 hot water on demand system for the cabin. Just need to get another for the communal bath area.

    Helping out with meal planning and co creating delicious meals.

    If anyone has experience in Permaculture that would be a great asset here.

    I also live in a community with elders. From time to time or when time allows/once a wk I like to help out and give a hand to the elders.

    Photography of the place/property along with the downloading of pictures and i/t help would be GREAT !

    Please, Please, Please only contact me if you are ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN you are going to make the journey to the property. Please, Please, Please DO YOUR RESEARCH as to where I am located and how to get to Lillooet.

    When workaways do not show up last minute or are not serious about making the commitment to be here it puts alot of stress and strain on myself, what needs to be done around the property and the safety and well being of the furry and feathered ones that dwell here. THANK YOU !

    If you have a vehicle I can send you my pin, my GPS location.

    What works best is to travel to Kamloops and then take the Medical Bus to Lillooet.

    I can then travel to Lillooet to gather you and start your off grid, back to the land experience.

    There are a variety of options. In the Summer months there are a handful of tent spots available in and around the property. In the Spring and the Fall the air is cooler and there is more of a chance it will rain, accommodations available would be the unfinished "Skool" bus as well as the "Special" white bus. Life and projects work with the seasons over here. From time to time I am working therefore I may not be around for every meal. There will always be food in the fridge.

    Outdoor showers and bath tubs will only be available during the months of June, July, August, September due to the potential of frost freezing the hot water on demand hardware as well as the hoses/water lines.

    as of June 14th, 2019 the outdoor shower has not been set up as I've had a couple of workaways cancel and i haven't had the time to set them up.

    This would be one of the projects to set up the outdoor shower for the season.

    We are fortunate enough to have the beautiful Yalakom River flow by the property. Relaxing and reading a book down by the river is one of my favourite past times as well as hanging out in the hammocks provided on the property. There are walks around the area as well as some amazing hikes. There is a great spot along Porcipine Ridge for watching meteor showers. From time to time there are pot lucks in the neighbourhood and every Tuesday night our good friend Len holds Music Night. Len has been holding Music Night now for over 20 years.

    I go into town at least once a week. We are a 40 minute drive from the town of Lillooet.

    The main house is x 2 cabins from 1934 put together with a face lift. The house/property runs on a system. It's really important to learn, understand and respect the system for longevity of the place.

    There is an indoor bathroom, however it is encouraged and highly suggested to use the outhouse as well as the sesonal outdoor showers/bathtubs once they are set up outside.

    The property is a drug and alcohol free zone and since we live in the forest with a high potential of fire danger the property is also a smoke free zone.

    The property is out of cell range with limited internet access times.
