  • Beschreibung


    We are a small farm and greenhouse operation in northern alberta, working with hemp, medicinal herbs and preparing for Solar Energy install and EV upgrades. we are a couple with 2 young boys so may need some help around the house too. We are well travelled as our son has already lived in 5 different countries so we welcome different cultures to share our farm. The greenhouse is located on the edge of the town of lac la biche in northern alberta. The setting is very rustic and great for outdoor enthusiasts. Your stay will be very near the lake( 1 mile)and we have bikes, canoe and kayak and small fishing boat to explore the area. For the Earthship build, we are looking to get it started this year once the crops are planted
    we would be interested in a long-term au-pair to help with the boys and the homeschooling
    permaculture principles play a key role in our wildcraft crops and solar energy is something that we want to encourage for all farmers to diversify their revenue.
    2019 spring/summer should include some of the following projects:
    --hemp gardening: growing, transplanting and watering the greenhouse, etc
    -planting our greenhouse and gardens
    -improving the watering system of the greenhouse
    -hempcrete build on a lean-to and garage happening now
    -roof repair of garage
    -solar hotwater system installed
    -Earthship build, we are starting from scratch, breaking ground first of august
    -micro-generation and EV charging systems:
    -EV charger and solar installations with two EV's in the yard which need work
    -greywater installation for the site
    upcycling skills are useful here as DIY is permaculture and you can expect some small projects such as finishing the compost toilet roof, solarium for house, bunkhouse from old grain building,
    -we do volunteer work for the keepers of the athabasca environmental group
    2020 january we would be interested in a long term house sitter who could look after things without much supervision as we have some travel in our plans. the work would include feeding two cats and learning to make tea and a few projects to prepare for the spring

    ,solarium for the house,starting and growing and maintaining new plants, We are very interested in developing an eco-friendly world so any knowledge of solar, medicinal plants, herbs, organic and permiculture would be a bonus.

    Help will not be overally physical with most time spent on the greenhouse acreage though we are starting an Earthship Farm building on 1/4 of land as well. We are researching making our own herb kits, i We have a small book store on the property and want to add a vegetable stand and wildcraft goods made locally Volunteers will have plenty of time to visit and explore the area. biking is available and encouraged as well as tennis and we could use help with a webpage project. Lots to do and the place is rustic, we will be working on more than one site and we sometimes help local farmers with an old fashion work bee as we would like to encourage organic food in the area.
    we are involved with the keepers of the athabasca and ARREA which is a budding solar cooperative so we often volunteer with these groups in the athabasca area.

    area is a lakefront community, we are 1.5km from the lake, one block from a pool and gymnasium and hospital and tennis and other sports are a short bike ride/jog away at the Bold Centre(50 million dollar sports complex)
    bike trails all around the lake, we have canoe, kayak, bikes, small row fishing boat as this area is paradise for the outdoorman/woman. normally there is plenty of time to visit the area and do some camping so camping gear is useful
