  • Beschreibung


    We are members of a community project located south of qathet (Powell River), BC. We have been working together since 2015 and on our site since the beginning of 2019. We have built 4 natural homes, with more coming this summer. We are a multi-generational group that lives together on this beautiful 40 acre property. There is a beautiful year round river, with swimming holes along one border, 2 creeks, & 3 ponds.

    We have hosted over 50 workawayers and are excited to have some more join us in 2023. We are 2 roles we are looking to fill - groundkeeper & cook.

    We presently have 6 families living on site - ages from 2 to 75. The community uses sociocracy for our governance and organization. We hold regular meetings (usually once per week), which you would be welcome to sit in on.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    Learning about group communication and decision making - our governance model of Sociocracy has been used here for 7+ years and is a great model to witness and learn from. You may attend meetings and see it in action first hand.

    We live in a rural setting about 20 minutes away from the city of Powell River. We have beautiful grounds, with lots of water around for hot days! There is a gorgeous ocean beach about a 10 minute walk away (along a forest path).

    There are 4 natural built homes on site (slip/chip & hyperadobe styles) and 2 more being built this summer. Always room to learn about this!

    English is our spoken language, and there are folks here who speak French & Spanish.

  • Arbeit


    This year we are looking for help in the general community! We need folks who can work independently much of the time, though there will definitely be projects and work parties where we come and work together.

    We have 42 acres of mostly forested & some landscaped areas. Here are some examples of the work that needs doing :)
    - Trail maintenance: Rainforests grow quickly, trails need to be cut back
    - Bush/tree maintenance: trimming, deadheading, pruning trees & bushes in the landscaped areas
    - Weeding: Around lanscaped areas
    - Garden: All things garden - planting, watering, weeding
    - Building up soil in new garden areas (hugel beds, etc.)

    We are also looking for someone to do some cooking for the community - 3 or 4 meals/week. This would include shopping, prep, & cooking. We will definitely help with the clean-up. Community meals are usually dinners for between 15-25 people. There is a variety of dietary considerations (some vegetarian, gluten & lactose restrictions). We do our best to eat local produce when available, as well as local meat & eggs. If you are passionate about cooking, we are a very appreciative crowd :)
