    Skill Sharing: I've worked in various trades throughout Ive worked in forestry, as an electrician, renovating and more recently have my own business in investigation. Persian cooking.
    If things go well after a month or so we could look at paying for your time as well but this would be looked at as a possibility later.

    WHAT TO PACK
    Work gloves -we do have extras if you forget 
    Headtorch -it’s dark at night up where there are no city lights
    Lock -  if desired 
    Rain Jacket – if we all bring one, we won’t need them. Rain or shine, this is a beautiful place !
    Warm layers – it will probably be chilly sometimes… its Canada!
     Easy-off shoes – you have to take them off to enter each building.
    Warm socks – with your shoes off, you don’t want your feet to get cold!
    Comfy clothes – for sitting on the floor, for relaxing, for yoga, for spending time outside
    Water bottle – keep hydrated :)
    Ear plugs – even when you’re heading up to the wilderness, sometimes people snore.
    Chargers- unless you want a forced vacation from connectivity which is in fact highly recommended.
    Good vibes!
