***Now looking for farm helpers for June through to September***

We live on a small permaculture farm on the edge of town in Rossland, BC. The farm includes a big garden and animals (goats, chickens, & two cats) and a whole bunch of farm development projects. Were going into our fifth season on a new property and have spent the last four years doing earthworks, building farm infrastructure, and planting trees & shrubs.

Besides daily chores, current projects include seeding, fencing, earthworks, planting trees & shrubs, and various building projects...

Our three young kids are always up for adventure including exploring the farm, bike rides, trips to the skatepark or lake, building things, or jumping on the trampoline.

We welcome friendly & responsible volunteers who enjoy a bit of hard work and share our love for the outdoors. It works best for us when farm volunteers stay at least 5 days to get to know the place. Our usual trade is 4 hours of work each day for a place to stay and three meals plus all other living amenities (wifi/laundry/shower living space, etc.). We find this arrangement leaves lots of time to explore the area or pursue other projects.

We eat healthy food made from scratch, mostly organic ingredients, and fresh from the farm when we have it.

It's a 10-15 minute walk up to town. In the summer, Rossland is a premium destination for mountain biking & hiking. Were on the side of a mountain, so every outing involves walking uphill or down!

Wed love to hear from you. Get in touch, tell us about yourself, and your upcoming plans.
