About the workproject

We need 2 volunteers

We really need some help for planting the garden and greenhouse in Mai and June and from then on too!

Hello we are a small family that are installed on agricultural land in Gaspésie, after travelling and working in lots of different domains and places. We love community living; learning and sharing ideas

We now have chickens, pigs and goats in the srping, a dog and cats.

We live in a century home on which we will renovate part of the roof with cedar shingles.
We cultivate a home garden, a greenhouse to accommodate all our beautiful plants, an orchard of 80 trees, and we start a small organic garlic business and also transformation of garlic flowers.
We have land as green manure that we will work to plant the garlic this fall an for the oncoming years.
We will do our own hay this year in a new field!
I work my permaculture garden in June and throughout the season I'm picking wild medicinal plants to concoct herbal remedies and make reserves for the winter.

In the late fall we also make our own sausages,bacon, proscuito and all from our pigs that we raise.

So as you can see, we need a hand in a lot of domains so if you want to learn or share;
feeding animals
transformation, picking
Medicinal plants
We give in exchange of a roof (house or yellow bus) and great food from the house.
Do not hesitate to contact us!
