Position:  Where Permaculture dreams come true - Create a self-sustaining garden in remote Chilcotin Mountains
Hi there! We are a small NGO for conservation and stewardship located on site a ranch and would like to start one or two permaculture gardens in the Cariboo-Chilcotin district of British Columbia, Canada. We share our home with 34 mountain horses, two pigs, chickens and purpose-driven people from all over the world. Our current goal is to become more self-sustainable on all pathways. As part of the planned improvements we seek to grow our own vegetables to supply some of our needs and further reduce the long transportation times of our groceries to our remote location, but also to educate our volunteers and the public that visits us on a sustainable and natural way of living. We seek to live and work in harmony with nature and create a holy, sustainable concept for our property and lifestyle.
