Since over than 15 years I use a private 2,000 sq.ft. rooftop to live summertime and grow vegetable and fruit, and now three rabbits. The 14-apartment and 2-store building is located very close to city centre (in trendy Mile End) with commercial and residential streets all around, but pedestrians and neighbours cannot see what’s going on on the roof (5th floor). Country lifestyle in the city with lots of greens and also two "rooftop cabins" for sleep, full-equipped kitchen, hot shower, projector for movies, WiFi, etc.
I hosted few couchsurfers since two years but, since there is a lot a work to be done, I’m now looking for helpers.
I offer a place to stay for one person for one week (or more) including accommodation and food but also request help for some four hours a day (mainly morning). Work includes wood staining, light renovations (wood), but also gardening (permaculture) and rabbits care.
There’s a lot to do and see in Montreal summertime. I request that helper come back be... more inside

Français plus bas.

We are a small Buddhist community living in the forest close to Sainte-Julienne, Quebec. We have an organic fruit tree nursery, along with many other projects on our land: several fruit orchards, chickens and bees, growing our own vegetables and herbs and trying to be independent in many ways.

NOTE: If you are looking for somewhere to stay in MAY, it's the perfect time to come here and we still have a plenty of availability! It's our busiest time of the year as well as the time when there the biggest variety in terms of jobs and things to do: packing trees and preparing orders, digging up trees, planting trees, (both for our nursery and our orchard); planting seeds, preparing our garden, running to catch up with the weeds, grafting, and more! Exciting times especially this year as we are planting new orchards on our new land :D

We are seven people in this little community: Ajan, Eric, Veronique, Mars, Elisabeth, Matthew, Natalie, and Eva. The community a... more inside

English version below.

Depuis quelques années, nous accueillons à la maison des stagiaires et/ou des voyageurs d`un peu partout dans le monde. Cette expérience a toujours été enrichissante et aide beaucoup pour les travaux au Verger. Cette année, nous aimerions vous recevoir pour aider à la récolte des pommes et à la fabrication du jus, et ce, de la mi-août au mois de novembre.

Notre petit verger de 3 hectares (600 arbres) est situé en bordure d`un sanctuaire d`oiseaux migrateurs (oies blanches et outardes) sur la rive sud de la ville de Québec, à 30 minutes des ponts. Le Verger est plus que centenaire et sous régie biologique depuis 1993. Nous y cultivons une trentaine de variétés de pommes qui sont transformées de façon artisanale directement à la ferme.

L`accès direct au fleuve St-Laurent peut plaire aux amateurs d'oiseaux migrateurs. Nous pouvons communiquer en français, en anglais ou en espagnol. Pour plus de détails, communiquer avec nous.

Bonne journée !

Good day!

Dave and I live on a small 30 acre farm located in Compton (beautiful Eastern Townships)near Sherbrooke.

We are technically both retired, however we started a small home business about 3 years ago and it has become quite popular, therefore most of our time is dedicated to the business. Dave builds new circular sock knitting machines repairs old ones, and I take care of the administration part of the business. We sell these machines all across the world.Check out our Facebook page: Chambord CSM Tricoteuses

From time to time, in order to promote our business we often have to travel and attend shows, therefore the reason we are in need of trustworthy people to care for the property and animals during our absence.

On our small farm we have a few animals. I used to raise Cashmere goats but now I only have a few goats,a sheep, a horse, chickens, ducks and 3 Maremma/Great Pyrenees LDG dogs that guard the herd.

Aside from the animals, we have a small yarn shop i... more inside

Upcycling, landscaping, building, ecological projects and more inside/outside near Montebello, Québec

Bonjour! Ici Andre et Daniel. Ten years ago, we bought an old reception hall that used to be part of a vacation resort. It was originally a piano-bar when it was first built in 1982. The past ten years of our lives has involved a lot of work turning this 2500 sq ft (225 m²) commercial building into our home and our future life project. We haven't quite figured out the life project part yet, but that was the point of us taking a "semi-retired" sabbatical to let it unfold...naturally! As former urban landscapers, we are stoked by the challenge of greening up a larger space, 5 acres (2 ha) in all with a pure water stream, pond and waterfall. As couchsurfing hosts, we got used to the idea of having company over. When we discovered helpx, the bonus for us was that guests stayed longer and helped out! To be absolutely clear, we are not running a business, a farm or making any money fro... more inside

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 i... more inside

Nous habitons dans la belle campagne de l`Estrie, dans un endroit tranquille à 30 mn de Sherbrooke. Notre ferme est trés diversifiée, nous produisons de l`agneau, du porc et du boeuf. Nous effectuons notre propre mise en marché et avons notre boucherie sur la ferme. Notre production est sans hormone de croissance et sans antibiotique de prévention. L`été est une période trés occupée avec les travaux dans les champs et avec les animaux.

Les principales tâches dans lesquelles les voyageurs peuvent nous aider sont diversifiées. Cela comprend l`entretien des animaux matin et soir ainsi que les divers travaux qu`une ferme peut offrir selon la saison et le temps: entretien des champs, ramassage du bois, récolte de l`eau d`érable, petits travaux d`entretien de la maison, aide à la boucherie occasionnellement... une aide pour les tâches ménagères est également la bienvenue!
