  • Descrição


    We are a multigenerational well travelled professional family. We have cats, dogs, chickens, rabbits, pigs, sheep, bees, and are slowly developing our indoor and outdoor gardens.

    We steward an 13-acre property on a peninsula with mixed zoning. We are looking for help with the indoor garden set up, to build shelters, as well as haul and chop trees.

    We are not a business and lean towards community and gift economy. We are not looking to sell anything we manage to produce, but simply enjoy eating and living more in sync with our surroundings and increasing self-sufficiency. While still on a massive learning curve, we are doing this more and more. Families are welcome. We have two independent teens.

  • Ajuda


    While experience is helpful, our main criteria is compatibility, ability, and willingness.
    For gardening: We welcome help to start our indoor garden.
    For DIY and building projects: We are presently renovating and building animal shelters and welcome help with this.
    General home support: We welcome help for deep cleaning and cooking.
    For those who enjoy being in the forest: We welcome help to haul and chop wood. We have tools for this.
    For those who enjoy computer work: We generally leave that till last as we prefer to be outside, so we could probably use some help with that, too:-

  • Acomodação


    Depending on the timing and who else is here at the time, there would be one of three options: one private back-country caban with a sleeping loft, a one-bedroom bunkie, or bunk beds in a main room. Each is very different, so if interested, just let us know your needs and we will let you know if we can accommodate. Generally: This is country living with warmth, low EMF, electricity, running water, toilet, and net available in a shared facility. Overall, we cannot accommodate those who are not outdoorsy by nature or who need glam-style creature comforts. On the other hand, we are in paradise for nature lovers.

    Workawayers are welcome to be more independent or to join us as we go through the days, depending on what they are looking for.

    What helpers can do with their time off:

    If they have a car, they may visit Marmora (10 minutes away), Stirling (15 minutes away), Belleville (30 minutes away), Peterborough (60 minutes away), Toronto or Ottawa, each a 2.5 hour drive. There is no local transport. We visit local cities regularly and can pick up and drop off as per our schedule if desired.

    They may go hiking, caving, cross-country skiing, kayaking, fishing, birdwatching, swimming, canoeing, jump on the trampoline, go down the zip line, star gaze, running, cycling, camping, all at our door step. We are a peninsula surrounded by several hundred acres of rarely trodden forest, rapids, rivers, lakes, caves and trails.

    Downhill skiing is 30 minutes away at the Battawa Ski Hill. Horse back riding is 30 minutes by canoe and hike or 30 minutes by car.
