  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of three living off grid on a hill overlooking Conception Bay North. We have ten acres of land in an abandoned Newfoundland community. We hope to be able to expand our homestead to include eco-retreatants and Newfoundland Ponies.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers will learn carpentry skills, off grid skills, and animal husbandry, and discover how people lived in Newfoundland outports. They will learn how to build a pasture for animals, dry rock wall construction, and traditional cod fishing.

    The Newfoundland Pony is going extinct because of loss of habitat. They have gone from 12000 to 250, and the few that remain have little pasture land. We hope to enclose a kilometre of prime pasture on the coast to offer it to Pony owners in the summer. We need help building the fence and digging a well for the animals. We also need help finishing construction of the Hermitage, building an outdoor kitchen, digging a garden, and laying foundations for a guesthouse.
