WORK-TRADE / WORK-EXCHANGE POSITION

Wanted: Farm, house, land help needed
Type: volunteer position with accom., breakfast, lunch, more (see below)
Organization: Free Roots Farm
Location: Margaree Harbour, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia

We are Tierra and Dave, founders of Free Roots Farm, a conscious, all-natural vegetable farm located in rural Cape Breton, NS. Our goal is to provide delicious and healthy produce to the surrounding area, and to build a conscious community that lives harmoniously with nature and each other. We are looking for people that have a like-minded environmental consciousness. Experience isn't necessary, just a willingness to learn. We also offer the opportunity to stay for as long as you would like and work on your own dreams. We would like to offer equal opportunities here and want to encourage others to live in a sustainable way.

We ask for our workers to invest about 5 to 6 hours a day depending on the weather and work (sometimes less, but never more). There is plenty to do in the area during the summer, spring and fall months. Throughout the season we require help with prepping garden beds, seeding, transplanting, watering, weeding, mulching, harvesting, washing, packaging and labeling, preserving, wild foraging, help with our Air BnB, art projects, building, and other farm and homestead related tasks as they come up. We offer breakfast and lunch on work days as well as free board. Our mornings usually start with coffee, breakfast, and music while we discuss the day ahead. Lunch is around 12ish. We also expect everyone to contribute in meal clean-up.

We have 1 available room in our home (couples are welcome), plenty of places to set up a tent as well as places to set up campers, buses, etc. We are also hoping to have communal spaces such as a kitchen, shower, and sitting area, as well as new living spaces, completed for the growing season. Currently the kitchen and shower is in the main house.

There is an abundance of activities in the area. We are centered between 2 towns, Inverness and Cheticamp. English and French are the main languages of the area. We are just a 5 minute walk from a lovely pebble beach and a 10 minute walk to the large sandy beach. The area offers a lot to do during the summer including Dance Temple, drum circles (hosted by our farm), beach fires, restaurants, paddle boarding, sea kayaking, whale watching, floats down the river, hiking, micro breweries, live music, parties, and we are located at the foot of the world famous Cabot Trail.
