We are an organic farm transitioning to vegan or Stockfree, supplying vegetables as weekly baskets to families in Montreal and to a farmers market. We also operate a year round vegan catering venture using mostly produce from our gardens.

Work spans from April to December and consists of sowing seeds in the greenhouse, watering, transplanting, clearing fields from rocks, weeding, harvesting, washing veggies and helping to get the baskets ready as well as the markets. Babysitting and cutting vegetables in the kitchen might also be part of the schedule if you are so inclined.
35 hours of work a week in exchange of room and board.
The atmosphere is dynamic, the work can get overwhelming, there is always lots to do, so keep track of your hours. You will learn a lot about running a farm, growing vegetables, vegan nutrition, compost tea, green manure etc. We are very interested to learn the skills that you have.
We speak french, english and spanish and love to practice qi-gong in the early morning.
We are 40 minutes away from Montreal on the south shore, a bus drops you to the neighbouring village where I can pick you up, just let me know at what time you will arrive.
You will either be staying in the workers house, in the main house or in a tent depending of availability. Stays over 10 days are preferred and we live in a smoke-free environment.
