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.
Cooking / shopping

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.
English, Spanish, some French, minimal German
I have a modest home and there is room to stay inside, or of you prefer, you could camp anywhere you please. This is open.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
A few hours a day, 2-3 days a week, minimum.
