** We are not currently looking for helpers **


I have a large mostly wild acreage with hardwood forests, wetlands, some meadow, river frontage, a small garden and a pasture for the laying hens as well as a small pond with ducks. This year I am planting an unheated greenhouse for the first time. I am guided by permaculture and biodynamic principles, and motivated by a commitment to honour the holy in nature.

The farm is situated in the beautiful Thousand Islands region of Canada, about 30 kms northeast of Kingston and a modest bike ride into the town of Gananoque. We are midway between Toronto and Montreal, and less than 2 hours from Ottawa, our nation's capital.

There is a separate one room "bunkhouse" with double bed, desk, wardrobe etc (including electricity) with a nearby outhouse. You would have access to the house for showering. There are acres of woods to explore, and a kayak (single) and canoe available to paddle the river if you like. Food is mostly organic, with a focus on locally-sourced, available for you to prepare for breakfast and lunch. The evening meal is a joint effort, with folks either pitching in with prep or clean-up.

The expectation is that you would be willing to contribute approximately 25 hrs per week. I am open to various arrangements (eg. 5 hrs/day with 2 free days, 6 hrs/day with 3 free days etc), including fewer hours overall, with meals/accommodations reflective of that.

There is also a self-contained larger cabin with kitchen facilities (rustic!) which is available to someone interested in a longer-term stay / more independence (with fewer work-hours expected).
