We are still accepting applicants during this crazy time in our world but will only be taking people who can offer longer stays as we feel this is a way we can help minimize contact and keep everyone as safe as possible.
We need willing hands this spring/summer to help with finishing work on our Earthship that we now call home, building a garage, yard cleanup and landscaping, child care, cooking and general life.
Our family of 4 lives on the side Willowbank Mountain in the Bleaberry valley near Golden in beautiful British Columbia!
We are on an off grid adventure. For 6 years we loved living in our hand built yurt. In the summer of 2016 we started tackling the building of an Earthship to be our forever home. We moved in this October and are LOVING IT!!! There is still a lot of work to be done.
We are focused on finding joy and purpose in life. We love sharing experiences with people and love the idea of doing things as a community!
DIY and building projects
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help with Eco Projects
Help around the house
During our project we will be hoping to expose people to different alternative building styles and off grid solutions.
If you are thinking of living off grid in any capacity we are sure there is something you can learn!
Also we love the idea of a rich community on our property. We currently have our family of 5, my Dad, and my sister and her family of 5 as residents of Inshallah. It's awesome!
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
This summer as we build our Earthship we are looking to have many hands around to help with:
Generally we need help with putting up the building and daily life.
We offer a very basic accommodation situation.
We have a camper that is cozy with a wood stove in it for the cooler nights in spring and fall (we’ve even had a couple workawayers stay a winter in this trailer!
As we are completely off grid there is no “normal power” (leave your air conditioner and curling iron at home please! Ha!!). However we have plenty of power for charging small electronics and keeping connected.
There is running water in the earthship (Not hot yet! :-). COMING SOON THOUGH!!!). We have a sauna for bathing as well as outdoor showers that are a delight on the hot days.
While we are off grid we are not off line and do have Wi-Fi.
Things we have an abundance of are: amazing views, wonderful quiet, amazing starry skies, TONS of world class activities in our area, campfires, music and NATURE!
Golden is known for it's outdoor activities.
Within an hour of Golden you will find most any outdoor activity you desire and chances are it will be "world class".
Biking, climbing, kayaking, rafting, paragliding, hang gliding, hiking, backcountry huts, camping, etc.... It's all right here!
Golden itself is a small town with all the basic amenities. It has plenty of great local restaurants and cafes, a decent night life. It even has a a bowling alley and a movie theatre. Wow!
Calgary AB is the closest main centre.
