  • Description

    Description

    The idea: With COVID19 and the locking down of our children, we would like to figure out how to develop our farm into a Forest School. I have done some preparatory work but need an Executive Assistant who would do the research and development. Tasks include: reaching out to the Forest School and Waldorf education communities; determining what kind of programming could work; conducting some outdoor learning experiences; preparing a business plan that includes a social media plan and community outreach.

    Our Farm: My husband and I farm 200 acres near Glencoe, Ontario which is half way between Toronto and Windsor/Detroit in the Thames River watershed. To get to our place, book a ticket with VIA trains to Glencoe. We'll pick you up. We live ten minutes away from the Glencoe train station. Please look at our calendar to see if your travel plans coincide with our months of need.

    Growing evidence shows that managing animals for soil health and regenerating pastures is one of the most important climate change strategies. To fix carbon on our farm, we care for cattle and we eat our pasture-raised meat. If you are a vegan or have intense diet restrictions, our farm is not a good fit.

    There is no vehicle for you to borrow. This is a place for you to explore two hundred acres of nature at your back door. This is a place to cool out, practice yoga, meditate or do gardening in the evening. We have bicycles for you to explore the backroads of Southwest Middlesex. If you intend to use the bicycles, please study bicycle road safety and bring proper reflective road gear. This is a community of older drivers and cycling on the roads is actually quite risky.

    We are involved in the community and often there are local projects to help with too.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    This is an English immersion environment. Mary can help you with your book studies but mainly this is a chance to speak and converse in a pure English environment. Mary also does pronunciation coaching using some of the great Youtube videos that help with the science of pronunciation.

    Southwestern Ontario is a very special part of Canada. We are halfway between Toronto and Detroit City. The geography is flat and the main activity is conventional cropping of corn and soya beans. There is LOTS of rural culture here! This is Canada! Lots of music, church suppers, social activities, and small town celebrations.

    With COVID19 and the locking down of our children, we would like to figure out how to develop our farm into a Forest School. I have done some preparatory work but need an Executive Assistant who would do the research and development. Tasks include: reaching out to the Forest School and Waldorf education communities; determining what kind of programming could work; talking to local teachers and principals; reaching to to homeschool families to discover their needs; conducting outdoor learning experiences on-farm for small groups of children; preparing a business plan that includes a social media plan and community outreach.

    This is no small task but it is a great opportunity for the right person who is emerging from teacher's college or taking a break from teaching. Also a good fit for any social entrepreneur who loves kids and nature. Or anyone who is concerned about addressing the growing mental health crisis.

    Cet hôte propose un échange linguistique
    Mary has a Teaching English as a Foreign Language diploma and can offer a total English immersion experience with coaching in speaking, reading, writing, pronunciation, grammar, listening. English learners, if motivated, share their exercises with Mary in the evening so she can help them with their formal program. More typically, she corrects pronunciation and explains the dreaded phrasal verbs! Mary and Ross include their worker guests in many family social activities so be prepared to meet many people and speak, speak, speak.
