Position: Wilderness homestead volunteers
Type: volunteer work-stay, 60 day minimum, with staple foods, more (see below)
Organization: Warmsprings Homestead
Location: Atlin, northern British Columbia / south of Whitehorse YT

We are a remote off-grid wilderness homestead on Atlin Lake. Connect deeper with nature and the spirit of the land surrounded by forest, mountains, and the biggest natural lake in BC. Our closest city is Whitehorse, Yukon.

We ask for about 25 volunteer hours a week with gardening, firewood, and homestead chores. We provide staple foods and a tipi, wall tent, or camping space. Up to 4 positions available between May 1 and Sept 30.

We are looking for mature helpers who are strong physically and emotionally and eager to live communally.

Opportunities to learn and practice the healing arts, indigenous culture, cleansing mind and body with herbal medicine, fishing, hiking, and spiritual community.

There is a wood burning sauna and warmsprings pool for bathing, and a communal cook shack with a wood cook stove. There is no cell phone service within 150 Kms, and no power, telephone, electricity, or running water on the property. Limited wifi available.

Experience with gardening, wilderness skills, chopping wood, and shamanic healing are an asset.
