  • Descripción


    Hello, we are four people and two dogs living on a forested, 100 acre, oceanside property on the Eastern Shore of Nova Scotia. Yaro and Savayda live with their dog, Rexy, and Wouter, his son Ben and their dog Nala live in a separate home, next door. Our land is very special, with a beautiful coastline, 5 km of hiking trails and five islands to explore. We moved here 3 years ago to be immersed in nature, to enjoy hiking, biking, swimming and boating and the natural beauty in the area. We have vegetable and herb gardens and raise chickens for eggs. We have a diverse range of skills between us, including professional herbalist, foraging, gardening, carpentry and boating. We hope to attract individuals seeking a nature based lifestyle, who are willing and able to help with basic property care, and who are interested in learning the skills that we offer.

    We don't over-consume alcohol, smoke nor use drugs and we ask the same of guests.

    It is peaceful and restorative being here. Everyone who visits feels at peace and enchanted by the beauty.

    Our accommodation is suitable from May 1 - November 30 (whether permitting). We give priority to those wishing to stay for three weeks or more.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    Travelers would learn various skills including carpentry, herbal medicine, gardening, boating (sailing, kayak, canoe).
    We offer a series of nature based workshops and retreats, which you are welcome to attend.
    We participate in local cultural activities such as our farmers market, music festivals and other events.
    We travel to Halifax (50 minutes) at least once a week for work and shopping, you could join if you wish to have a city day; Halifax has many cultural sites.
    We have bicycles you are welcome to use to explore the area.
    We have all travelled extensively around the world and enjoy learning about other people's cultures and travel experiences.

  • Ayuda


    We have a few building projects that require assistance: sauna, small woodshed, outhouse. We are continuously clearing trails and spaces in the forest, so we would appreciate help clearing brush, movement of gravel, and wood chips to make paths. Plus general property care - trimming hedges, mowing, help in the garden. We have a small saw mill, so need help hauling logs from the forest and milling.
    Good basic health, strength and stamina are an asset.
    Sorry, no pets as we already have two on the property, plus free-range birds.

    We are 10 minutes from the nearest town and 45 minutes from Halifax. The Eastern Shore offers natural and cultural based activities, including the 100 Wild Islands, gorgeous beaches within 15 minutes, farmer's market and heritage sites.
    We are situated on the ocean, within a strong culture of fishing and boating, and a slow-paced way of life. All seasons provide opportunity to be outside; we enjoy evening fires by the ocean under a bright sky.
