    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will have the opportunity to get in contact with the Xeni Gwet'in First Nation people as soon as you arrive since it's an adventure to come to my place. The Xeni Gwet'in First Nation are the first and only ones who won Title for their land in the entire Canada. This is the chance for you to get to know them and their philosophy of care-taking the Land. You will become a caretaker too.

    People will be encouraged to be as creative as they can in all the projects involved here: cooking, building, gathering wood and medecine, gardening, creating spoons and bowls made out of juniper wood.. You will have to learn all kinds of new plants and you can cook them in a creative way on a wood stove. You can also help me build my new project, a small circular log building with vertical log and funky unusual windows.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    Volunteers sleep in simple and old log cabin, carry water, use outhouse and rustic bath or sweat house. This is a very difficult and isolated lifestyle, requiring volunteers to be physically fit. The wind is quite intense for much of the year. It is also as majestic a place as you ever will see.

    Kayaks are available with access to pristine wilderness, hiking, rowboat, fishing from a kayak, gathering wild roots and hunting or snaring.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Most diets can be accommodated. Absolutely no alcohol, smoking or drugs allowed on site.
    No pets except for camels.
    I am fairly serious as a yoga practitioner and would prefer someone with some kind of practice or open to learning. I have no religious leanings. No English required.
