    Description

    Hi I’m Shane. I’m starting a new homestead and am looking for some help setting up a garden, greenhouse, apiary and orchard. The area is beautiful with endless trails, and so much friendly wildlife everywhere. I have eleven forested acres with lots to do. I would also be happy to accept any help with fencing, firewood and any household chores. There simply aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done alone. I have a small home, a playful dog, and a lot of dreams for turning this bare land into something productive and brings me closer to self sufficiency.
    Electricity, minimal/no cell service, no running water, out house. Come be close to nature.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As a hunter and gatherer, as well as cartographer, I know BC very well and can offer good travel advice. I also am an avid fermentationist and reader, and I’m sure we’ll have many intellectually stimulating conversations as well as a great transfer of skills.

    I know a little about gardening but I need to learn more. On top of preparing the land and building the greenhouse, I’ll need you to teach me as much as you can about growing things :)
    Permaculture knowledge is an asset.
