We have 16.3 acres, mostly forested, partial wetlands, with a creek on the property. There is a soothing, cool wildness to the land. I'm creating a space where people can connect with other humans, and nature. A space to learn, heal, and love. We will start as a small homestead, and ideally develop into a small community!
I spent many years volunteering with various communities around the globe! After spending years searching for a place to set some roots, I've rooted here, in the Central/West Kootenays. This area is wild and powerful.
I have experience with plant medicines, fasting, meditation and yoga. I'm happy to chat about these things and share knowledge.
While there are plenty of tasks to be done, I like to practice bringing awareness to how things are being done. I'd like to empower others by provided tasks that teach skills they are interested in developing.
There are caves/mines around the property-- it was a mining site many decades ago. Town is 10 minutes away, wifi/cafe 3minutes away. There is cell service. Telus has informed us wifi will be working mid-May.
Slocan lake is minutes away. We have a canoe, too.
Great hiking all around.

Travelers will learn about the early stages of homesteading.
Preparing spaces and developing systems for humans living in harmony with nature.
Ideally, the tasks themselves will be learning experiences. They will be for me!
I like to go to farmers markets, and this is a good opportunity to learn about the local culture.
I'm happy to teach what I know about plant medicines and connecting with nature.
I am connected with a couple communities in the area and there could be events that volunteers will be able to attend.
-Tending greenhouse, grow room plants
-Working with wood, and metal.
-Retrofitting a shed, building a log roof.
-Retrofitting a cabin.
Building skills are an asset, but not needed.
Volunteers will have to be in generally good physical condition, able to spend 20-25 hours per week(3-5 days, or 3 if requested), often engaging in moderately challenging physical duties.

There are a couple areas available to camp, or park a van/RV. The property has glacier water and power, 1 minute from the main camping area. There is a wilderness creek shower(its cold), a camping solar shower, and an outhouse.
There is a creek next to the main site, and a stream next to the secondary site. Both sites get decent sun and are immersed in the trees.
There are regular sized tents and sleeping gear that can be provided to backpackers. We have extra blankets, sleeping bags, etc.
I can provide cooked meals in the mornings and late afternoons pretty much all days. Volunteers are welcome to cook too, if they'd like.
If there is a group of 3+, cooking meals and cleaning is considered a work activity. Food will be available so that work-awayer's can prepare meals. I can accommodate a variety of diets. Vegan, vegetarian, or carnivore diets.
Volunteers will have access to the kitchen in the cabin, and provided with food. Volunteers are encouraged to cook and clean. We generally like to share meals together. We eat a simple diet. Curries, veggies/grains with sauces. Big garden fresh salads. Occasional eggs/tofu. We like yummy oats on working days. There will be ample staple foods(vegetables, greens, quinoa, rice, beans, oats, peanut butter, bananas, eggs, tea etc) provided for volunteers. Things like chocolate and coffee may be offered.
We like to go to the hot springs each week, perhaps not in the middle of summer-- but otherwise, yes!
We also like to go to the sauna once per week. There is a creek next to the sauna.
There is generally a BBQ once per week. We like to invite the neighbors.
There is a bus that comes by that goes to nearby cities on Tuesday and Thursday.
I make a trip into town each week and can usually bring people along.
There are lakes, hikes, biking trails, hot springs, and more around to do.
I like to keep things clean around the property and ask that people leave the space as good or better than when they arrived.
No alcohol use on the property.
No smoking, or substances(even natural substances) on the property.
