  • Description


    Dylan; I am from Tatamagouche Nova Scotia. I enjoy running my business and growing it at a sustainable pace.
    I enjoy BJJ, hunting and spearfishing, sailing and Catan.

    Franzi; Super smart beautiful German lady who is doing her PhD in Political Science. An avid Hiker and Climber, Franzi had our first daughter Luna in January 2019, and has been known to threaten people with apple crisp.

    We gained access to a beautiful spot of land of 11 acres, right by the Ocean, about 30 minutes from Halifax and now we plan to make it awesome with YOUR help. We aspire to own a pig, cat, dogs, goats and a baby crocodile. We plan to set up a beautiful garden and a chicken coup. We want to cut down trees and develop the land and use land the land as much as possible to live a sustainable, healthy and environmentally friendly life.

    Our place is made for workaways. We love hosting people, Franzi loves to prepare big meals and settle down with a book by the fire at night. The space is quite big to do your own thing or all hanging out and watch a movie or head to the Falls for an offseason dip. We are looking for someone who is easy to be around and loves to go on adventures and hang out with our little nugget.

    Our freezer is full of Deermeat and our pantry full oh homebrew beers. At this moment in time, we are not equipped to accommodate dietary restrictions. We eat organic and local and hunt venison in the Fall, which is our main source of protein.

    We will do our best to get you into town or doing some interesting stuff a couple times per week. The 30 hours of work can be applied in in any form, though normally 6 hours per day, 6 days a week.
    Example of an average day with our first workaway;
    morning; work for 1 hour painting, breakfast, 2 hours more painting, go for a drive to the beach, city, horse farm etc,
    back later in the day for 3 hours of cutting wood painting etc. end the night with beer and board games by the fire.
    We are happy to accommodate your wished and talents. Any visions and personal input into for the space is welcomed.

    Learn some wood working, Gardening (In the spring)

  • Help


    In the Winter we mostly require child care for our little nugget (one year old). Occasionally you may need to bring wood in, shovel etc. If you are there in the spring months there will be some garden prep to be done.
    If you have a car it's a huge asset. If you don't have one.. consider getting one! :)
    We have one, but you will want your own.
