Position: Part-time Land Caretaker, Month of August
Type: part-time, negotiable terms & housing, see below
Location: Northbrook ON (camp on-site) (near Bon Echo, Napanee)

I'm offering free camping for the month of August on my 2.6 acres in Northbrook, and grocery money in exchange for part-time caretaking of the land.

Candidate must have chainsaw and wood-chopping skills. Responsibilities include thinning out small trees, chopping wood, doing the odd garbage run and weeding the yard area around the cabin.

Your camping spot would be on the heights, completely private.

This is magical land full of quartz. Lots of lakes near by.

3 minutes down the road is a grocery store, a cute restaurant/music store, a BMO bank, and an independent dollar-ish store. The main town is Napanee, which is a little under an hour south. Bon Echo Provincial Park is 16 minutes down the road.

I will be at the cabin a few days a week throughout August. My cabin and land are off-grid, so we all have to haul in our own water and be okay with outdoor toilet facilities.  

WHO: You are an ecologically-minded person who's cheery and uncomplicated, curious, quiet (no radio or any other noise but nature), hard-working and believes in reliability and committment. If given a task, you take pride in doing it well. If you make mistakes, you initiate solutions. You have woodchopping and chainsaw skills (own chainsaw preferred). You have a car and own tent. 

Misc: Grocery money allowance is $50 per week and is paid at the end of the contract.

If interested, please contact:
