Looking for 1 or 2 helpers
for help on a natural building projects. You will gain hands on skills working with wood in the round. Need at least a 2- 3 week commitment.

If you're interested in sustainable building and living, and want to learn and share, then come for a visit. We will be building in the round this summer, using material harvested from the forest. Learn and help with building projects. There will also be other tasks which will include gardening, cutting/splitting firewood, cedar shingle making.

Our homestead is located on the beautiful Bruce Peninsula, the sandy beaches of Lake Huron on our west and the rugged escarpment of Georgian Bay to the east. We have an organic garden, and some chickens. We build handcrafted log houses and rustic cedar furniture, which is harvested from our forest and other managed forests. We host ongoing workshops on movement practices as well as workshops and courses on sustainable construction and sustainable living. Helpers will have the opportunity to learn hands-on skills in building, as well as gardening and forestry skills...and of course, there will be plenty of time to enjoy swimming, hiking, sight seeing, and dancing on the beach (yes, Wendy is a Nia dance instructor). Hoping to see you on the Bruce!
