Marianne and I (Julie) are just starting to renovate a huge country house in the Eastern Townships of Québec. We want to open a holistic wellness center in few years and we need all the help we can get whipping our mini-manor into shape. We're friendly, creative and well-traveled ourselves and we'd like to make new friends all the while gettin' 'er done! Come join us!

We NEED people with experience in building, greenhouse set-up and even well and sanitation projects... but we'll HAVE anyone who can pull a weed or hold a paintbrush :)

As of yet, we have clean, non-running water and generator powered electricity. Wi-fi is in town (10 min bike ride) but we should get that settled before winter. You can camp in the house (camping mattress and sleeping bag needed) or outside, or both on alternating days if it tickles ya. We ask you keep the site clean and assume responsibility for any actions or people you bring to the land. We're all about nature and community, and we ask only that you start there too.
We're 20 minutes by car from vibrant Magog (very fancy boating town) bordering the Memphrémagog that extends all the way to Newport, Maine. Also 20 minutes away is Orford, with amazing rock climbing, hiking and skiing. Oh, and in our backyard is Mount Foster, which attracts thousands of tourists to its trails all year round. We have access to storybook 40-foot waterfalls round the corner, but if we ever get the tadpoles outta the pool, we're guessing that's where we'll find you.
