  • Beschreibung


    Located in the Southern Rockies of Alberta, within the community of Crowsnest Pass, this 5 acre property is a welcoming destination for travellers who are looking to spend time in the beautiful Canadian Rocky Mountains and reconnect with the land. The vision for the property is to create a small self-sustainable community utilizing both new technology and old techniques with spaces for living and connecting with others. It will eventually include garden space (both outdoor raised beds and indoor greenhouse), communal gathering spaces (both indoor and outdoor) for events and activities, a sawmill and wood shop, a forge for blacksmithing metal tools, a kiln for firing clay, a tannery for processing hides, an apiary, some chickens and a few livestock perhaps (the land base is still quite small but maybe a cow or goat for milk), a waterwheel mill (or some other way to utilize the creek on the property), a rock wall surrounding the property (for multiple purposes - privacy, noise abatement, and protection), and many other self-sustainable permaculture practices.

    Right now I am in the process of completing land clearing for proposed infrastructure. At the moment there is always work to be done outside with preparing the land (cleaning up brush and branches to be burnt, moving firewood or logs by hand or with the tractor-training can be provided), garden areas (preparing the ground and constructing wooden raised bed gardens, construct a compost), cutting firewood with a chainsaw (training can also possibly be provided to those interested) and splitting it with an axe, putting up fencing around the property, constructing a trail to the creek In the valley on the back of the property, foraging for fresh herbs and plants in the area, etc.

    Particular skills I am looking for in people at the moment include: gardening, landscaping, carpentry, masonry, animal husbandry, plant identification, cooking.

    Eventually will be looking more for people who can bring specific skills to share to the community as well (ie. holistic healing, health and fitness, music, arts and recreational activities).

    I currently have space available on the property in the form of shared accommodations. There is a private bedroom w shared bathroom available. The property is 5 minutes from town and amenities and easily accessible just off the highway. More info can be provided upon request.
