Opportunity to volunteer on a Haskap Berry Farm. Starting in April/May 2018. 180 acres of property to explore from forest to fields to a small wetland. Looking for support in getting the orchard ready for the season!

The farm is off grid so important to understand the restrictions to off grid living.

This summer, starting in July, we will be having our first commercial berry harvest, and there is a lot to do to prepare for it! We will be preparing the fields, weeding, and putting netting down to prevent the birds from eating our berries. there is also an opportunity to build a small greenhouse and prepare the vegetable garden for household use!

We need help - hard-working happy people urgently needed to help with gardens (both decorative and produce), along with some events, programs, etc. It's an amazing community and you can be part of making it even better!

In winter, we need help with light construction projects, and assisting with some of our community programs. Spring, summer and fall, we need help with the arts projects and with the large gardens, and with the kitchen.

It is an amazing place, and when open programs are available, we invite our volunteers to take part in great arts programs (when available)!

We live on 81 acres of beautiful Nova Scotia forest and field. We have 36 Alaskan huskies and 4 rotties we brought across country, from Yukon. In Yukon we raced dogs for the past number of years and hope to return to race, in the future.

Your farm experience here will include assisting Deb with the dogs and Jonathan with various building and clearing jobs. There will be daily kennel cleaning and watering and feeding of the dogs. As the weather is starting to cool down we are slowly getting the dogs out for more training runs. You can be part of this as we will teach you what is involved.
Our 4 rotties are very friendly and live with us in the house along with our newest family members Jake and BamBam. These boys are Padenco's from a rescue in Spain. So you must love dogs to enjoy your stay here.
Our land needs some trail clearing done as we are also starting a Dog Sled business.
We are also planning on reforesting our massive, grassy front lawn, in Sept. and there will... more inside

This is a thriving Bed and Breakfast which I run on my own. There are red current and gooseberry bushes, rhubarb plants and space for a garden but I have not had time to maintain the garden.
The Bed and Breakfast is located on the ocean (in a sheltered cove) which is perfect for kayaking or swimming. Conveniently located to explore Halifax or the South Shore of Nova Scotia.
I like help with greeting the guests and serving breakfast, laundry, cleaning the rooms and some yard or garden work. This requires up to 4 hours per day working along side me (some days less). Room and Board provided. I prefer minimum stays of 2 to 3 weeks. The greatest need is from June to end of September. I am just starting to look for helpers now for summer, 2018.
