Help to create and support a healthy restaurant and yoga studio to change people’s lives! (in Ontario, Canada)
Description
Hi and welcome to our awesome project to change the world!

I have been traveling and working in the building industry for ten years. I'm a certified industrial millwright, with a lot of experience and schooling in all the trades. I have led different volunteer groups from all over the world to build a university in Korea in 2011. I have continued to work in different countries as I have travelled around the world and all over Canada. I have also lived in Holland for a year and Australia for more than two.

At the beginning of 2015, we had the chance to purchase a building to create a Cafe Veggie restaurant that currently serves our little city with wholesome locally grown food. In the summer of 2015 we converted an old doctors office into a local, health food restaurant with the help of foreign volunteers from all over the world. This health food restau... more inside

Gardening, forestry
We live in a small cottage on a friendly lake about 3 hours north of Toronto.
We have the usual cottage toys available, canoe, small sailboat, row boat. Looking for help with selective cutting trees for firewood and lumber which we cut on our own small mill. Hopefully someone that is a better gardener than we are as we would like to start growing our own produce and maybe even get some chickens. Help with some construction and painting projects. We have some old machinery we are always trying to keep running. We are offering free accommodation and meals in exchange for help.
This is a no smoking environment.

November, 2017: Renewing the profile.
Built the.GREAT ROOM extension with farm grown, felled and milled wood.
AND NOW.. Off for the annual Westward Pilgrimage to Victoria, B.C. Happy to accept helpxers from April 1st, 2018.
So, no pics of snow blowing after a monster storm, no pics of maple syrup production, of the vegetable garden, of the many flower beds to be kept, of the wide expanse of lawns to mow, of weed whacking, forest management and maintenance, the portable saw-mill, the summer cottage, rhubarb chutney processing, the asparagus bed, the apple harvest, and no pics of the fitness room/ soccer field, trampoline or the five workshops.
WHAT HELPX MEANS TO ME: Giving HelpXers a chance to be creative, inventive, resourceful and independent, given access to the extensive machinery and equipment that is available. Sure, the camaraderie and companionship are important, as are the opportunities to experience a variety of culinary delights that are brought to the table.

We are a very adventurous family who loves the great outdoors. Our cottage is on a small picturesque lake near Georgian Bay with hectares of woods behind. A lot of the material for the cottage we cut from our own woods. We have had several helpx helpers and the experience has been mutually beneficial and pleasurable for all concerned.
You will share meals in the cottage with me and the family. Family and friends will come and go on weekends. We have several remote cabins which we visit frequently. The work will be varied - sanding, painting, de-cluttering,cleaning, cooking and some carpentry. There will be plenty of time to explore the woods and surrounding area.

We are two long time friends who share common goals and desires for a simpler life, living on a fifty acre farmstead located between Ottawa and Montreal. We are in the process of restoring an old farm, reviving pastures and fields, and working towards self sufficiency. We grow fruit & vegetables, and raise Shetland sheep for wool and meat. We also raise chickens for eggs. We use the wool from the sheep to make some of our products that we sell, such as felt hats, toques, mittens, sweaters, and more.

We have been welcoming Canadian and international travelers through various programs for over 15 years, and have had some wonderful times, and developped lasting friendships along the way. We truly enjoy sharing our lives and our love for the homesteading arts and are grateful for the benefits these opportunities bring as well as committed to working through some of the challenges that crop up as strangers become friends. Skills and experience are not as important to us as a wilingnes... more inside
