Our farm is located in the beautiful rolling hills of the Eastern Townships where there are beautiful views and lakes. We have a large farm at the end of a dead end road and are quite secluded and surrounded by nature.

Normalement nous parlons anglais chez nous mais nous parlons egalement le francais. Cathy est originaire de la Gaspesie et Chuck est originaire de NYC.

We grow plants in our greenhouses in the winter for sale in the spring. In the summer we have a large organic garden and also flower gardens. There is lots of work but we always have lots of fun, laugh a lot, talk a lot, have really good food etc. We like to play Texas Holdem sometimes. The work that volunteers usually do in the summer are things like picking berries or harvesting and maybe preparing vegetables to go in the freezer,weeding or maybe mowing the lawn. We often take small trips to Vermont and once a month we sing beautiful four part harmony. I practice Chinese meditation and have intense interest in spiritualities. Cathy is passionate about subjects concerning the degradation of the environment and political and social injustice in the world. We both enjoy Facebook and there is high speed wifi in the house and we even have a spare laptop.
We have a wood fired sauna and a pond to swim in. Construction work or helping with firewood might also be helpful if the person was capable.. But the most important attribute of a good helper is sociability. Come and find new friends.
We have a large private room in the house for helpers and also a large camper.
