Sustainable Living Demonstration Site and Education Centre

Shawnigan Lake, Bc, Canada for no min - no max +
25 acre Sustainable Living Demonstration Site and Education Center on beautiful farm setting. We are a park, farm, school, and residential community with food services and accommodation services available and hosting to almost 10K people per year. The space is created as a 'Commons' and is run mostly by volunteerism. Most folks pay own site/food costs when they come to volunteer but for certain roles OUR team covers costs in order to gain full commitment to the team running programs for the summer. Personal ability to work in a team and group dynamic is essential. Emotional maturity to be part of a residential live/work situation a must. Incredible opportunity to meet and work with folks of every walk and talk and meet incredible teachers! Currently we are winterizing OUR whole site and would love some major help putting OUR gardens to bed! Maybe some art work/mosaic design etc indoors on OUR construction projects too! Roles we require for 2014: 1) Site and Events team member who can work with S/E Coordinator doing on the ground prep for groups, events, and general care of people and place. 2) Cook assistant - working with kitchen team to fully nurture and provide for all kitchen tasks of cooking for up to 100 people at a time in a semi-domestic kitchen...with a lot of heart. 3) children/youth eco-ed and daily support with creation of fun, learning and nurturance. This is perhaps OUR most important role! We are a learning community which focuses on sustainability of the future - through and with OUR children. We have a small handful of kids onsite and some who need only short term care as their family is here for a workshop. Huge heart is the key to this role. 4) Alternative energy, heat, waste water, technical assistant. This year the village is plugging in (literally needing to install) a next generation of systems in an effort to 'close the loop' 5) General site and maintenance people. There is much to do, fix, and keep up and at year end lots of focus on winterizing. Sometimes this role is simply and extra set of hands that is needed on OUR team without necessarily lots of extra skills. 6) Carpenters and trades people. Plumbers, electricians, etc etc.

Over the next 5 months projects include, building and landscaping a market garden with greenhouse and polytunnel Fencing works around the farm to make it all livestock proof Looking after the pigs and other animals A number of woodwork projects including field shelters and stores Tree planting in a number of areas Woodland management and some coppicing.
