- Painting
- Carpentry / Timber frame construction

We are located only 10 km from Bridgewater and only 5 km from the famous LaHave Bakery. While we own and operate a Stained Glass Studio on the property our hobby farm has grown to include several large vegetable gardens, poultry and rabbits as well as and sustainable forestry. We make our living by running a stained glass studio, fabricating and restoring stained glass windows and creating glass art. We also have a fully equipped wood shop. There is a lot to do and a lot to learn. There is a guest cottage available to the helpers. The private cottage has a private bathroom and WIFI access. Helpers share home cooked meals with us and may use our bicycles or kayak.
