Working Together and Learning Sustainable Living Skills

The Green Life Farm belongs to the wwoof network.  Wwoof is an acronym for “world wide opportunities on organic farms”.  It  is a worldwide network of volunteers and farm hosts in more than 30 countries.  The web site for the Canadian division is
We have wwoofed on a few farms and have been hosts on our own land.  It has always been a great experience one way or another.  Wwoofing is a way to experience sharing a space and values with other people.  With some people it only goes so far, while with others it flows like time spent with old friends.  Wwoofing is a good way to look into an alternative way of life.  It is a experience of self discovery since it is a leap into the unknown.  It may not be exactly what you’re looking for but it is always a learning experience.
This year we’ve had four wwoofers.  Three from Montreal and one from Maine

About thegreenlifefarm

The Green Life Farm welcomes people who are on a path toward sustainability, increased environmental consciousness and mindfulness. We are 80% food self sufficient, off the grid for lighting, have reduced our wastes by 90% and have become more and more producers instead of consumers. The Green Life Farm is a place to meet kindred spirits and experience how it could be to reconnect with people and nature. Our farm is always open to visitors interested in alternative energy, living, thinking, building, husbandry, forestry, cooking and farming. In summer, our place is open to campers. Our names are: Bonnie and Sylvain. Calling 902-665-2084 is best because we are not online,, every day. You are welcome to bring your pet. Be ready to use an outhouse! All visits include harvesting (even in winter), preparing and sharing a meal…and good discussions
