ABBONDANZA-THE ABUNDANCE OF NATURE
If you believe that work should always be both fun and creative, this is the place for you.
We are located in the beautiful Eastern Townships of Quebec, very close to the Vermont border and very easy to reach by bus from Montreal.
There is a fabulous swimming pond on the property, lots of wonderful walking trails and we are terrific cooks and eat super well here.
This is a small but extremely diverse farm that offers helpers the opportunity to learn about many aspects of food production and sustainable living. All of my work is based on protecting our agricultural heritage and getting people involved in growing their own food and supporting local agriculture.
There are several market gardens, a small orchard and a greenhouse where we produce seedlings for sale in the spring-mostly heirloom tomatoes and then use the greenhouse to grow tomatoes and peppers all summer.
There are chickens, ducks and turkeys! And last year we added sheep!
There is a also an active woodlot management project on the property.
In addition we run the weekly Farmers Market in our local town.
Three years ago we added educational workshops to the farm activities and they are going strong. So there is always something fun and interesting going on.
There is high speed internet access, a great collection of CDs and DVDs and we love to play music.
It is my great pleasure to share my knowledge with others and to learn from them in return. I believe that helpers have a rich and FUN time at my farm.
The spring is a crazy busy time but there is always lots to do, spring, summer and fall.
We speak both English and French.
Please visit my web site, see link above, to see more of what goes on here at the farm.
