In order to meet high costs of food and other food security issues in the North and to address the high rates of diabetes and obesity on our First Nation, we have established a number of vegetable gardens. Although much of the gardening is done by volunteer community members, a consistent worker is required to mow grass surrounding garden and fruit trees, to do weeding and to assist independent Elders who are attempting to maintain their farmsteads on the First Nation.
One room guest house with ensuite is available on one of the farms for a non-smoking worker or couple. The guest house has one double bed, a library, a microwave and fridge, and a deck with bbq. Meals and this accommodation will be available for the worker. This farm and garden(s)with horses is approx 1 mile from the town site of The Pas. Transportation will be provided from the farmsite to the gardens. LGBTQ friendly/safe community. Temperatures during the summer ranges from 16 degrees Celcius to 30 degrees, with most days around 23 degrees C. Situated on the Opaskwayak Cree Nation, near The Pas, Manitoba, Canada. Approx. 500 miles north of Winnipeg. For leisure activities, the area has a beautiful Clearwater Lake where fishing, hiking, canoeing and kayaking are available. In June and early July, experience the Aurora borealis, sunrise at 4am and sunsets at 11pm. Stays of ten days to 2 weeks are preferred. Learn about Cree culture while working with us. When you have finished your work experience here, you may wish to travel north by train to Churchill to see the beluga whales and/or polar bears.
