Position: Apprenticeship (22 weeks)
Type: full-time with room & board, honorarium, more (see below)
Organization: Wheaton River Gardens
Location: 1 hour south of Whitehorse, Yukon

Wheaton River Gardens is a 35 year old homestead /now organic market garden, situated 1 hour south of Whitehorse, Yukon in the Coastal Mountains. I have a small flock of sheep, Icelandic and milk, chickens, geese, a horse and llama and farm dogs and cats. I process wool for felting, sell at two farmers markets and do a wide variety of workshops, including many school tours.

I have offered a 22 week apprenticeship on small farm skills for the last 9 years and plan to continue this season. This apprenticeship covers many skills needed to run a small farm or home stead and I look for someone who is serious about learning skills- lambing, organic vegetables, sawmill use, fencing, composting, butchering and much more. I apply to our local territorial government for an honorarium of $100/week for the successful apprentice and provide room and board with your own cabin. We work hard, eat well and live locally.

If you are interested please call me by phone for an initial conversation or leave your phone number and I will call you. My phone is 867-668-5964. I can provide an outline for the placement on request. I am off grid, no email or cell phone, but can check email weekly at best or every two weeks at worst. Email sjalexandrovich mask* .must be a Canadian citizen.

Deadline is March 15, 2018.

Looking forward to another season!

Sincerely, Shiela Alexandrovich
