A straw bale, passive solar house with solar panels and composting toilets built on a site designed with permaculture principles in the village of Portneuf, Quebec. This is a great opportunity to learn all kinds of skills and help me finish the house and continue improving the property's fertility and design. I am hoping to find someone willing to stay for a longer period of time, between one and three months. But don't hesitate to contact me even if you can only stay for a shorter period of time.

I have extensive green building knowledge and experience, and am a Permaculture designer, consultant and teacher. I am offering free room and board in exchange for enthusiastic and conscientious work and pleasant, respectful company. If I give any courses while you are here, you can obviously attend free of charge.

Amongst the things that need doing before the winter are: finishing work on the exterior siding, some plumbing for the heating system, installing a ventilation system, interior finishing around windows and doors, flashing on the exterior of the house, thermal compost, soil preparation for next year's garden, and some fall planting.
