    WE GIVE PRIORITY TO THOSE WITH BUILDING SKILLS

    Hi! We are a small group starting an eco community on 165 acres on a pristine mountain vale in southern BC. Our focus is on creating a replicable permaculture orchard & farm as well as offering nurturing earth based healing experiences. We are focusing on developing our permaculture orchard, market garden, farm with animals (goats, chickens & bees so far), and natural home buildings.

    Currently we have here Cea (54), Ricky (56), isaiah (21) Cea's son, Matao (19) Cea's son, Ashlyah (10) Ricky's daughter, Margaret (58) here part time and James (36). Soon to come are Jordan (25) James' partner, and Brooklyn (11) James' daughter.

    Ricky and Ashlyah have done about a dozen workaway gigs across eastern and western europe, and turkey. We do our best to pay attention to your needs and we are ready to welcome you with open arms.

    When you come you will be welcomed by the eco community group and will share in our community meals, mostly outdoors under our pergola. We are building this community from the ground up. We already have an artisan agri building with a common kitchen and hang out area with games, musical instruments, turkish daybeds with cushions & throws. We have cell service and some wifi access.

    We also have an outdoor kitchen, screened tent for massage or energywork exchanges, a fire circle gathering area, a slackline and hammock plantation in the trees (on hot afternoons we siesta there after lunch). We have 165 acres of beautiful nature surrounding us so much opportunity for hiking, forest bathing and contemplation. There is a camping area (bring your tent and camping gear or stay in our tents) in the trees or meadow by creek, an outdoor tub in aspen grove, and a showerhouse with a changeroom & sink. Mostly open air and glorious! we are currently building a workaway dorm wall tent with woodstove and sitting area. it will be done very soon.

    Our expectation is that those who feel drawn to be a part of creating this eco community is that they will be involved in the projects and social life going on, although may use personal time as desired.

    We have a stretch/ yoga, quigong or short mindfulness meditation every morning and then a quick check in circle and make a work plan for the day. You may join in with whatever project most suits or interests you. Work projects range from gardening in market garden, building a root cellar, building a greenhouse, building fences, feeding goats and chickens, cooking and meal prep & clean up, general maintenance rocket stove building, and helping to build earthbag and cob houses.
