    Descrição

    My family and I live on a queer and trans friendly Land Co-operative just outside Nelson in beautiful southern BC, in traditional Sinixt territory. We are a sex positive, polyamorous triad living together with one child. I (Emily) am a food activist and am passionate about the local foodshed and growing my own food! Some of my endeavours include permaculture gardening and establishing a food forest, fermenting everything, animal slaughter and butchery, wildcrafting and herbalism.

    Just Phil is inspired by native vernacular architecture combined with modern techniques and tools. He creates permastructures guided by geometry and flow. Each project undertaken pushes the boundaries with whole systems modelled after the patterns of nature, with a heavy focus on interconnection. He intends to teach anyone willing to get dirty how to take advantage of locally available materials to create anything you can imagine.

    Damo is a jack of all trades. He is a trained chef and has skills in carpentry, timber framing, stonework, and many other practical pursuits. Creatively he is inspired by photography and can often be seen following his lens.

    Our child, Tencza is often working alongside us (and you!) helping/hindering :) Her enthusiasm is contagious.

    We live in community on 88 acres of mostly forested land, a rural wild mountainscape and are off-grid on microhydro. Bird Creek (Chiweha Sk'kaka) provides us clean, fresh water and reliable power. Being off-grid allows us to more intimately understand how we consume power in our lives and has led us to a more simple and ecological way of using electricity.

    There are Other workaway hosts on our co-operative too:
    Troy and Jason
    Eric and Lauren
    Michael

    We are currently creating a subterranean reciprocal round post and beam home, Insulated with slip and chip, with an earthbag cold cellar and a living roof sheltered by a double green house. We are also establishing a food forest, and maintain an organic community garden. Along with all other things that come with living in a forest on a mountain.

    *️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️We are always looking for someone who is specifically interested in from scratch cooking -3 meals a day, with the most stellar ingredients you can imagine :)

    This summer we are cutting the round log frame for the GnomeHome If someone who knows how a mortice and Tenon is made using hand tools, come this way! I am looking to carve the joinery on large fir timbers and assemble in Fall

    There is always something to do in the garden, but this tends not to be a full time thing, as generally the garden takes care of itself. There is always some harvesting and a bit of chaos management. With the more intensive times being spring and fall.

    Our preferred structure is 4 longer work days with 3 days off, generally Fri/Sat/Sun. We provide three whole food, mostly organic meals daily.

    We are looking for Long term volunteers (2 weeks+) and short term volunteers.

    Anyone interested should come dressed to work and play outside in the mountains rain or shine.
    Quality waterproof footwear and raingear are necessary. In the winter, we have hike in access only, so come prepared to walk up the driveway 1km and then toboggan out!

    While we are open to hosting digital nomads we live a very screen minimum lifestyle. Our internet is relatively slow and only have 100gb a month bandwidth. So i would say if you are looking to work full time from our space you are unlikely to be a good fit. If you need to do small contracts/projects in a part time manner then you may contact us....
