  • Descripción


    Our nature paradise & charity home office is a small backpacker type / farmhouse near Lawrencetown Beach on a lake & farmland. As a base for our international children's aid society the farmhouse is used as a stay over for adventures which we use to create an income for our aid projects overseas.

    My name is Sunyata, an international children's aid & animal rescue worker. Volunteers help with the old family farm house yard, painting, garden & organizing tasks, help with rescue pets, sort donations for international children's aid & sometimes jewellery fixing. I am happy to show the area and introduce to new friends.

    While enjoying our farm house & community, I'm looking for someone to or help 4 days a week for 3 or 4 hours a day.
    Main tasks are helping sort donations for childrens aid, create 1st aid kits & workshop materials while also organizing extra storage space twice a week, getting our space ready for tourist season through light gardening twice a week, 2-3 small painting projects, helping with tasks that create an income to help our childrens & animal rescue charity, mow once a week, cuddling and sometimes feeding the cats Gismo, & walking the a small cuddly Dominican rescue dog Peppers. Help organizing or designing the volunteer bedroom to be the best it can be.
    You can help with trails in the forest (if you like) & gathering brush for bonfires but nothing intense. I will help start you off on most tasks but they are mostly independent as I manage the bnb, teach & charity managment.
    All tasks are very flexible & can be spread to leave room for lots of surfing, hiking, biking and bonfires with other guests.

    2nd job: We could also make a 2 week placement for someone who likes to be creatively handy. This would entail fixing old doors, some painting, yard work, forest trail making, mowing and gardening. Also helping with pup and cats from time to time. If you love the outdoors, nature and can make something out of nothing being creative this could be a forfilling odd jobs gig for you.

    During time off you might enjoy surfing in one of the best surf spots in Eastern Canada, Lawrencetown Beach. Also the house is surrounded by lakes and trails. The TransCanada trail is 5 min walk away and beach 7 min walk. There is a cafe & small shops 20 min walk away.
    There are no bus so I will take you shopping once a week so you can buy what you need but I will provide you with some basic vegetarian items for your kitchenette ( but this is not an all meal full stay). There is no liquor store near us so please plan ahead to bring any wine or beer as we do not provide this, only some basic food to add to what you bring.

    You can use the bike to get around the area.

    If the timing works betqeen my jobs I will pick you up in town and drop you back at the agreed spot so you can travel onward.
