Hi! We are a small family working hard on a resilient and autonomous house project. We bought a house two year ago and we are renovating the major part of it. We are 100% water autonomous (rain water system). We are actually building the deck, fixing the outside siding, doing the kitchen and starting the garden (Hugel Kultur). We are using permacultural principals and we are interested to share the vision and knowledge with others. Our dream is to become antonom, to cultivate our own organic vegetables and to share this abundance with others. We are looking for help to make this project real!
We are a fun family who decided to leave the big town to live a life according to our values. Renaud, 36 y, o, is mainly working on the house project and also working part time for a formation Institut in ecological construction. Karine, 34 y.o. is mostly a full time mother and also working part time as a therapist!!! Collin, 5 y.o. and Anaëlle, 18 months, are amazing children who love to discover and play.We are usually french speaker, but we can also speak English and Spanish.

Help with Eco Projects
This is the opportunity to learn about green construction and renovation, permaculture and to share good time with an amazing open mind family.
We are looking for a volunteer who likes construction, physical tasks, getting things done in teams and children. Also, as our house does not offer much intimacy, the campsite is offered.
We actually would love help with: chaux painting, fixing gypse, fixing wall wood finishing, ventilation, fixing floor, assemble the kitchen, fixing the outside siding (metal siding), taking care of the chiken and playing with children.
Inside or outside campsite and campground equipment provided, delicious vegan and organic food. We could also borrow our car with you if needed.
We live in the eastern township, an amazing region for nature, hiking, canoeing, biking,... We have a national park at about 15 minutes from home. Magog city, a gorgeous small touristic town, is nearby
