We are Jonathan and Debbie. We live on 9 acres of non soil based agricultural land. What this means is we have animals and market gardening going on here. Jonathan is working with straw bale planting and hugekulture planting. We both work, Jonathan in Agriculture with the Yukon government and Debbie as a Teacher on Call with the local schools. Which is why we really appreciate the extra help. We live with an number of athletic dogs in the house and in the kennel. So you would really have to like dogs to be here.
Jonathan loves board games and strategy games as a great way to unwind. He is always on the go. He loves growing things, both animals and plants and strives to give his animals the best possible life he can. Debbie loves reading working with children and relaxing. She's a little more laid back. We complement each other.
We live 40 minutes north of Whitehorse, Yukon, a short hike away from the beautiful Lake Lebarge surrounded by mountains and nature.

We enjoy sharing our lifestyle with travellers. We offer a fairly rustic lifestyle here although we are not to far from town. Whitehorse is known for it artistic community and music scene as well as the history of the area. Agriculture and sustainable food sources are very much in the forefront in the Yukon and we are part of this endeavour.
We are looking for an individual or individuals who are able to work independently and as a team. This summer we will have sheep, chickens(layers) and turkeys to look after as well as the compost. We are planning on building some more hugel mounds for planting as well as using the ones we presently have. We are also putting up a wildlife fence around our property. There will also likely be some basic building projects going on.
We have a small cabin for living quarters or a wall tent. There is no electricity or water. However, water can be taken from our pump house and electricity can be delivered using an inverter and battery set up. (In the summer there is very little need for electricity as we have almost 24hr daylight). There is a very good wood stove in the cabin and lots of wood around. There is also a propane stove for cooking and we can provide you with your food.
Shower and laundry are at your disposal in the main house.
With the use of a vehicle (you just need a license and pay for the gas you use) you can explore the many hiking trails in the area. Cycling is big here with some impressive races being held. Mountain biking is also popular. Some very nice coffee shops also have extensive information on what is going on in town.
Whitehorse has a huge sports complex for reasonable daily rates. There is a great pool there as well as many fitness courses and even a skating rink.
If you love the arts there is a tremendous amount of art culture here.
A trip to Dawson City, the Dempster Hwy and Tomestone is also a must.
