  • Description


    We are located in the heart of the Columbia valley just outside of Golden BC. We are building an off-grid Earthship inspired home. We are wrapping up the house, doing some minor finishing work and the next big projects are building an Earthship style shop, outdoor kitchen, and possibly another cabin for volunteers to stay in. We have 40 acres of land, including a campground with running water, solar shower, tent pads, yoga deck and a Tree house cabin! We are 20 minutes from world famous mountain biking, rock climbing, hiking and fishing (oh and we have all the gear! ). We are a young couple in our late twenties who are enthusiastic about building new projects but also not working too hard that it's not fun anymore.

    Because we have started a project of this magnitude we have less time to travel. We love to travel, meet interesting people and share knowledge about building and great stories.

    We both work In the town of Golden Friday, Saturday, Sunday, so lots of time during the week to get stuff done. We are looking for volunteers who can start on a day that we are around so we can show/teach about the project.

    Currently we are looking for helpers to help with pounding tires for the shop, we have a pneumatic tamper that runs on an air compressor so it makes life a lot easier not having to sledge by hand.

    There are also lots of smaller construction tasks that pop up often such as firewood collection, construction on the outdoor kitchen and building a new garden. We like to operate as more of a community setting where we help each other with all tasks such as dinners, dishes, feeding chickens, and clean up.

    We can offer you a picturesque location to set up a tent/trailer/hammock (whatever you want!), coffee every morning and dinner every night (unless you are a picky eater.. Then you might have to bring your own specifics ) although we try to keep as much food on site to share, it's always handy to bring your own snacks for throughout the day. (Lunch, second lunch, etc.) Especially on the days we don't work on the property. We can give you access to a fridge, BBQ, stove and delicious veggies from the garden.

    There are currently 3 separate Earthship builds in our area, all at different stages and different designs. We love to help out each other and share knowledge.

  • Accommodation


    We can provide a room in a small cabin, trailer OR an already set up tent with a mattress and bedding at our campground (dead horse camp, it's fantastic) if you have your own tent and sleeping bag by all means set up wherever your heart desires! We have outdoor cooking facilities, outhouse, solar shower, and multiple campfires.

    We will provide dinner every night and breakfast/lunch on the days we work. Please bring some of your own food for snacks and days off. We also camp on site, so if you enjoy the outdoors and a little bit of rustic charm you will love it out here!
