HELP Needed asap, June 26th - July 14th
Current Projects: - building and burning charcoal mounds for gardens
- fencing for donkeys
- putting up hay for winter
- scraping old farmhouse to get ready to touch up paint

Our property is conveniently located close to the beautiful white sand beaches, the LaHave river (Bakery) and the town of Bridgewater. We are a family of 5 with three young children (ages 6,3 and 1). We have been working on our land for three years establishing a fruit orchard, veggie gardens, enriching and repairing soil, raising animals for eggs and meat, and applying permaculture principles to the land.

This summer our major projects will be building a woodfired oven, outdoor shower, landscaping our new post and beam barn, pond improvement (transplanting water plants to our ponds) and fence improvements.
We need help with mulching, transplanting, trail cutting, minor repairs and maintenance to the 200 year old farmhouse, fence and gate building. If you are good with a chainsaw that would be a huge bonus.

We have bees, a pregnant cow, chickens and two pigs and need help getting our fencing done for the donkeys to arrive!!

We surf and visit the beach often. A vehicle will be available for trips to town or hiking trails.
The accommodation has a queen size futon and a couch to sleep on. It is located above the workshop and has WiFi. The kitchen and facilities in the house are shared and we always appreciate when people pitch to help cook a meal or two.

We are looking for 4-5 hours of work per day, 5 days a week, in exchange for food and accommodation. We welcome other families to come and stay.
