Are you interested in working on a hybrid earthship building?
Does camping out with a beautiful mountain view excite you?
Can you dedicate yourself to be a conscience and clear communicator?
Do you want to experience the wild beauty of Northern British Columbia?
Come join us for a work trade! As a community, we are a compilation of many hands, and we welcome hands from all walks of life to join us.
We expect a minimum of 5 hours of work a day, 6 days a week from our worktraders, and it’s likely that if you fully engage yourself in what we have going on, you’ll be doing more without even realizing it. Work will mainly be helping us build a hybrid earthship, but will also range from garden building, growing and storing food, wild harvesting, working with firewood, resource gathering, trail building, to any other number of things. We like to have fun and work hard, so you’ll want to ask yourself if you’re up for the challenge and can gain satisfaction through long days and physical labor. Our lives can sometimes be hectic and there will be days you’ll be in charge of motivating and supervising yourself. We like people who take initiative and are just as excited about seeing new possibilities as we are. For people staying with us over a month and who are inspired to do so, we encourage they take on a part-time project of their own, as long as it contributes to the community as a whole.
You’ll be living outside, sleeping in a tent, cooking in an outdoor kitchen, and working outdoors. You will not have regular access to a conventional shower, toilet, or laundry machine. We often eat our meals together but there are times, due to circumstances, that we all fend for ourselves. You’ll be provided with basic staples and produce. If you’re not comfortable cooking over flame, ask one of us and we’ll show you.
We like to have people over for campfires, go for walks down to the river, and get out for activities in the community.
The nearest train station (Via Rail) and bus station (Greyhound) is in New Hazelton and we should be able to pick up volunteers if arrangements are made ahead of time. There is also an airport in the nearby cities of Terrace and Smithers. If you are interested in volunteering with us, shoot us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org and below is a link to our volunteer form.
Also, check out our internship program for 2017 if you are able to dedicate yourself to a whole season with us!
