I just bought this farm. As of November 2018, I have planted over 600 trees. Those trees are LOTS of effort to water every day!!! In spring of 2019 I will plant more berry trees. There are NO animals... yet. Maybe in the future I will have pigs, a cow, lama, cats, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs. I love animals but just bought this farm and have NO animals yet.

I am REALLY into RECYCLING and REDUCING and REUSING. If you want to learn about this then you might like it with me. I know ALL about that. And I can teach you because I have 30 years of experience with it. I am, on my farm, recycling all kinds of stuff that mainstream society throws away. I am finding ways to divert things from the landfill. I am finding people to reuse items.

Come help me with my reuse recycle farm idea. There are also women and children here. It's not just me. See the Rocky Mountains and possibly come for a hike with us. You may possibly take some road trips across Western Canada because sometimes I do road trips. My farm is located JUST outside Edmonton which is a city of over 1 million people. There is ANYTHING you want to do here. Festivals, bars, pubs, nightlife, shopping, cinema, theatre, sports, spectator sports (hockey / football), gymnasiums, ice skating. Edmonton has the biggest urban park of any city in the world I think. There is amazing hiking in the river valley. We have the biggest shopping mall in North America and possibly the best in the world. We have lots of downhill skiing in the Rocky Mountains and also a short drive from my farm. There is a pond on my farm if you want to turn it into a hockey rink (you can shovel the snow off the frozen ice). I can provide skates. I can possibly take you snowmobiling and dog sledding. We have snow shoes and cross country skis for you. You shouldn't be bored in this place. When working you will be cleaning and organizing because we're just setting everything up. Expect hard dirty work but good food.

There is UNLIMITED internet access. You can at least catch a ride with me into the city as I drive in almost daily. I also have accommodation for you IN THE CITY so if you want to escape the farm for a weekend you can go into the city to party or sightsee for a couple of days. And then come back to the farm to work for 5 days. I will show you around the city as well.

I sometimes take road trips into the Rocky Mountains to go hiking. Most of the time you will be on the farm working. When you're not working you can watch movies, satellite TV, use the high speed internet to Skype or WhatsApp your friends. Or just go for walks out in the woods/trees. Maybe use our big recreation room to play billiards or sit by the fireplace with a book and read. Or start a fire out in the back yard and have a wiener roast.

I will take care of you and teach you English. I will feed you well and show you around my area of Canada and possibly even do a road trip with you. There is UNLIMITED internet for you. There is FREE laundry. You will get all your food provided for you.

But.. Do NOT expect fancy accommodation. You will probably be staying in our home in the basement. Or you might be staying in a motorhome in my back yard. And there will be lots of cleaning, organizing and dirty hard work. If you can't physically do the work I'll put you on lighter duties. You might be helping my wife with cooking and childcare. You might be helping me clean up my messy yard. Or maybe I'll just get you to do some computer work for me if that is what you prefer.
