I live on a farm on lovely Wolfe Island, near Kingston, Ontario. I have 3 horses and a cat. I also board several horses and. this year have started a small market garden that offers a local CSA and also serves to teach two young farmers who want to learn about ecological growing, food security and sustainability.This year I will need help building a small greenhouse, moving compost, building a horse shelter from pallets and putting away firewood for the winter. I am looking for someone with some basic carpentry skills.
My farm is just a few kilometres from the village of Marysville which has a lively music scene as well as some basic shops and restaurants. Big Sandy Bay is also nearby with several kilometres of beautiful beach and great swimming. If you have some riding skills, I am happy to take you riding! As well we are a short ferry ride (free) to the city of Kingston which has movies, restaurants, music and shopping as well as many interesting historic sites. As Ontario is opening up from COVID lockdowns, I am hoping that I can again host workaday guests safely.

You would learn about ecological growing, simple living and small scale farming!
I live in a century stone farm house on 50 acres of land. I can use help around the barn and gardens. This year I will need help building a small greenhouse, moving compost, building a horse shelter from pallets and putting away firewood for the winter. I am looking for someone with some basic carpentry skills. If you speak French, that would be wonderful as I love to learn and have been working at it for may years now.
I ask for 4-5 hours of work per day, 4-5 days per week. If you are an experienced rider, I ride several times a week and also have a couple horses that need to be worked to get them in shape for summer camps and lessons.
Private room, shared bathroom, some meals and full use of kitchen and house. I don't cook every day but will do my best to have plenty of food available.
Wolfe Island is wonderful for cycling as well as for walking along the shores of Lake Ontario at Big Sandy Bay. The ferry dock is 2 km from the farm. I go to Kingston fairly regularly and would also provide use of a bicycle. I work off the farm a few days per week but my schedule is quite flexible. I enjoy meeting new people and live a pretty relaxed life, though I generally get up early, so if you are a night owl, we might not be a good match!
