  • Description

    Description

    We are a village of separate households of single people and families scattered over 100 hilly wooded acres. We homestead in varying degrees, living off-grid using some solar electricity and heating with wood. We grow organically much of our fruits and vegetables; some eggs and meat. We’ve spent 50 years learning how to be good neighbours, which has been a worthwhile process.

    Most of our children were home birthed and many have been homeschooled; ages 2 years to 20. Weekly ecstatic dance nights, swimming in our pond, trampolining, tobogganing, snowshoeing, sauna-ing, and potlucks are some of the things we do for fun. We all share a love of nature and the arts.

    A multi-generational community, we are all involved with the surrounding and supportive rural community in varying degrees.

    We are avid gardeners and homesteaders, with an aim to live harmoniously with the land here.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    You would get to be part of a community with a variety of people of different ages/experience levels/interests to interact with and learn from. We believe in connecting with the land, and encourage you to do so as well. This is a lovely part of the earth, with hilltop views, forest, streams, and grassy pastures filled with medicinal plants. Some of what we have to teach includes: organic growing practices, composting, humanure composting, sustainable forestry, orchard care, grafting, food preservation, fermenting, keeping bees, maple syruping, baking with a cob oven, growing and using natural dyes, and having a light footprint on the land.

    Aide

    The work we need help with changes with the season. In the early spring (February and March) we need help with maple syruping, chopping and stacking wood, and starting seedlings. In April and early May, we need help preparing garden beds, and weeding. In late May-July, we need help planting and watering gardens and in August-October we need help harvesting and putting our gardens "to bed" for the winter as well as cutting and stacking firewood. Throughout the year we need help caring for animals, maintaining buildings, cutting firewood, preserving food, clearing walking trails, driveway maintenance, caring for children, and helping with various communal projects.

  • Hébergement

    Hébergement

    We have lovely, secluded spaces for you to set up a tent or trailer. We can provide a tent/mattress/bedding if needed. Throughout the season there may be indoor residences that become available. These would be shared accommodation in log/wooden cabins - most with outhouses, and no running water.

    Your host is responsible for feeding you (ex: if you work with someone for the day, they would feed you three meals). Foods made here tend to be omnivore fare - usually organic, mostly home grown/raised, including lots of yummy fermented creations (sauerkraut, kimchi and home brewed mead and cider are regular accoutrements to the meal).

    Transportation to us can be challenging! Best is if you have a car. Hitch-hiking is also possible. Often there are people coming and going to urban areas who can give you a lift. We will keep our ear out for rides if we know you are coming.

    There is no public transportation that will take you directly to the farm. You can arrange a ride with us from one of the closest bus drop-offs. A gas contribution ($5-$10) is welcome.

    Public transit options:
    Check Ontario Northland Bus Schedule for buses to Pembroke, Ontario.
    It may also be possible to pick you up in Algonquin Park if you take the Parkbus from Toronto:
