We are a Warmblood horse breeding and training family farm. One of our goals is to produce top quality horses for international competition in jumping, dressage and three day events. Our main farming activities include feeding, training, breeding and caring for our herd of 100 horses. To view current pictures of our horses life here, go to our Touchstone Farm Facebook page.

We have chosen to be as close to nature as we can and build as naturally as possible. We are therefore a rustic facility. We have a small portable saw mill for sawing our own wood. We are endeavoring to organically produce some of our own food. To this aim, we also have a few goats, chickens, a cow and calves and a garden.

We need help year round with the livestock, training and caring for the horses, pasture management, fencing, landscaping, gardening, meal preparation, housekeeping, building construction and repairs, cutting lumber and firewood, mechanical repairs etc. Winter is a unique experience on... more inside

We operate a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program during the summer, where our farm grown, spray free fruits, berries and vegetables are sold directly to the consumer, we also have a pick-your-own fruit market garden. There is a large amount of gardening to be done during this period (May to October).

We host weddings and other events on our farm and operate a Bed and Breakfast.

We make improvements to our farm as weather and time allows. We look forward to converting a barn to a greenhouse and need good help in all these areas.

Along with our adopted grandchild (9 yrs) my husband and I live with 2 cats, 1 hamster and 2 dogs in the house. We are close enough to bike to a tourist site (Ellis Bird Farm) and Lacombe.

The Ranch is located 1 hour S.W. of Calgary, with a terrific view of the Rocky Mountains.
All the wildlife that you can imagine, live in this area.
The chores here are varied.
Feeding and maintenance of the Sheep and their pens. Preparing and maintaining the garden.
I have 2 Horses, that require some attention. Feeding and maintaining their pastures.
The small chicken house requires daily cleaning, feeding and collecting of eggs.
When the hay is ready for harvesting, there are a few longs days of collecting and stacking the bales. It is always a race with the weather, to get the bales into the barn before we get hit with a thunderstorm or rain shower.
Experience with a chainsaw is helpful.
Landscaping experience is also very welcome.
Fixing and improving fences, and corrals is an on going project.
Cleaning & cooking is something we all share, depending on who is busy doing what, and who is better at what.

I've been off helpx for some time and moved cities. I'm now enjoying Edmonton in a small happy rambling home near the city centre. There is city transit from the Airport stopping a couple of blocks from our home.

Near our home you can enjoy the forested North Saskatchewan River Valley and it's huge park system with soaring cliffsides and miles of trails. This river valley is the largest expanse of urban parkland in Canada. 18,000 acres in size and 48 km in length with 22 ravines. You could spend days walking this forest.

We ask 4 full hours each day for the first five days with two free days after that (On your free days you are responsible for your own food buying, preparing and cleaning up). Work varies and may include gardening, clearing brush, conditioning soil, painting and prep and housecleaning. Renovation experience such as tiling, carpentry, plumbing, etc. would be great but not necessary.

We all share meal preparation and cleanup outside your work hours so bring ... more inside

My tree nursery is located 120km west of Edmonton and only a 2.5 hour drive away from famous Jasper National Park in the Rocky Mountains. There are 3 members to our household: Pat, his girlfriend Anita and our kind old friend Froggy.
We need help with stapling, tying and crimping the trees we dug, digging and planting seedlings, caring for the trees in our nursery and you might help with tree planting and landscaping jobs all over Alberta. In spring we sometimes go as far as BC to dig trees. Tree care means pruning, fertilizing, parasite and weed control. Working here also includes renovating and building projects, i.e. fencing, painting or carpentry. There are a beautifully landscaped yard and rock gardens to look after and some fruit picking in summer. During the colder months one of our helpers is usually in charge of the daily horse chores. As we are all living together we share the household work. The tree business is seasonal - weather permitting we might start as early as th... more inside
