We are a non profit organization and have been in operation since 2005. We are off-the-grid with microhydro and/or wind turbine on site. We are searching for people with 'handyman' skills including carpenters/builders who like being in nature and who like alternative living and self sufficiency. Tasks for helpers could include construction activities related to the main centre building, building green house, woodshed and accommodation spaces and firewood gathering. There is need for landscaping and especially focus on the organic gardens for those with a green thumb! We are flexible and helpers should work with what resonates inside them. We have lots of tools! We ask Helpers to contribute an average of 6 hours labour per day in addition to meals and clean-up times. We can usually get Helpers to and from the airport in St. John's.

For accommodations, we have a wood-heated bunkhouse with kitchenette and bathroom with shared accommodation in individual rooms. Water is from a nearby ground spring. The focus is on sustainable living in Nature utilizing locally available resources. We provide food and accommodations. Living accommodations at the centre are rustic relative to commercial accommodations.

What else ...
This year, 2018, we are continuing our organic gardening, improving our off-the-grid energy sources, completing the main building, building a workshed and more. We are focusing on development details to qualify the Tree of Life as an 'ecolodge'.
