    Description

    We are a small community, two households at this point, in the South East of British Columbia. Join us on 3 acres with magical roaring creek, lovely cottage, outbuildings, resident cat, 15 minutes from Nelson.

    We’ll share our home and fill your bellies with good organic vegetarian meals. We invite you to experience the gift of this land and an alternative, low stress lifestyle.

    Please note:
    although we are new to the workaway network, and as such have no reviews, we've been hosts through other hosting websites for some 12 years or so. And our home registry of hosting experiences is filled with reports from happy helpers.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live what might be called an alternative lifestyle. We've chosen a life of voluntary simplicity, immersed in an exquisite natural environment.

    The photo shows some of our strawbale construction. Depending on who shows up and when and their interest, we have some more strawbale work in progress. It would be great to get a strawbale wall finished and airtight for winter.

    We would be very happy to welcome you to share in our living experience.

    In appreciation, achille

    Summer has just begun and we are engaged in construction; some roofing and Strawbale renovation, as well as gardening, firewood processing, falling trees.

    If you are looking at later summer we will be fully engaged in getting everything squared away for the change of season; In other words much to do before the snow flies.

    At that point we will welcome some support in harvest, preserving food, getting firewood and kindling squared away, and putting the garden to bed for the winter.

    ....and quite likely finishing up construction will still need some energy.

    There is ample opportunity for hiking, lounging by the creek, bike riding, and you can easily go to town by local bus. Nelson is a very interesting miniature city; it differs from most small towns in that it has a huge diversity of cultural opportunity, and a wide diversity of population.
