  • Descripción


    We are city folk learning to live the rural life, doing our best to live a sustainably. In our previous life, we ran a boutique hotel in Downtown Montreal. The pandemic allowed us to reevaluate our life, and take the plunge to build the homestead we always talked about. We've dreamed of giving our kids a rural upbringing, and though the pandemic was a disaster for our business, it also afforded us the time to reflect on what we really wanted for our family.

    Now we plan to explore our cultural roots, to live off the land, to grow what we eat, and to do our part in healing the land. Our homestead is on a 2-acre property in the beautiful Prince Edward County. We will have egg laying chickens, and will focus on permaculture, biodiversity, and regenerative farming practices. Through WorkAway, we hope to continue sharing our culture and the knowledge that we are accumulating.

    We have brought on 2 pups into our family as well. They are Great Pyrénées, learning to protect our homestead.

    Help us build a beautiful farmstead in the beautiful county!

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    We are adventurous, and love to learn and show our kids the different facets of life around the world. You could learn about the Hmong people, how to make beer, some woodworking, home maintenance, dog care, how to run a hotel, or how to make a killer pour over. We love all sorts of random stuff.

    Our homestead will feature food forests, hugelkultur beds, a flower garden, and all sorts of other ideas

    We just need general help around the house and homestead, in whatever areas you are comfortable in. Help us discover permaculture and learn to create a food forest. We will need help building, taking care of animals, gardening, and lots of general maintenance work.

    Projects to renovate the house are also in the plans. Expect physical tasks!

    In general, we expect a trade of 10-20 hours a week. We are flexible on how we can split this up.

    Este anfitrión ofrece intercambio de idiomas
    We are Anglophones from Quebec, so though we know our French, we'd like to not lose it! Hans is Chinese, but our kids don't speak any of it. Maybe it's time to teach them?

  • Alojamiento


    You will have a camping trailer with full privacy. It’s under renovations right now, but you can see a picture of it above.

    In our past life, we ran a boutique hotel, so you can expect to be comfortable!

    You are welcome to join us in family dinners as well. You will undoubtedly enjoy some Thai and Laos inspired dishes, along with frequent barbecues.

    We will have dogs and chickens around the farm. We'd love to see more animals around, but you must keep them leashed and supervised at all times.
