We are Tyler, Zenovia, and Metro. We live in one of the many beautiful places of the world. We love to: eat well, ride bikes along our coastal highway, play, walk in the woods, work hard in the gardens, eat delicious, fresh foods, have bonfires, listen to music, make art in the forge, make fresh juices and superfood smoothies, play bike polo, drink good beer, ferment many ferments, and sleep until the sun rises on the bay.
We live in rural, South Shore Nova Scotia on the Aspotogan peninsula, overlooking the beautiful St Margarets Bay. Our home is across the road from the ocean and is close to ocean beaches, lakes for swimming, cycling routes and hiking trails. The nearest town is 10 km away and the capital city, Halifax, is a 45 minute drive. We live on 1.5 acres with extensive gardens, chickens, and we are currently designing and building more accommodations on the property.
Work that you can expect to do here includes heavy landscaping, gardening, building maintenance, carpentry, food preservation and harvest. We often have people help with trail building and wild foraging. We are very welcome to those who like to cook and we can accommodate any dietary needs. We often eat together for supper but you are occasionally expected to be able to put meals together from basic ingredients.
We are not looking for help with business, and seek people interested in living, for a time, how we live in our private home.
