Role: Organic Herb Garden Volunteers
Farm: Chickadee Farm Herbs 
Type: vol./exchange for room and board, more (see below)

Location: Flatbush (north of Edmonton), Alberta
Accommodations: yes, see below

If you are interested in learning about many herbs, holistic farming or working in the boreal forest please check us out!

We are a herb garden farm. We grow and dry culinary herbs and herbal teas. We also have a large garden, which we eat from for most of the year, and a few sheep. Our sister farm up the road has taken over the goat farming, however, we can always go see them or they may come to see us.

We are looking for eager volunteers who want to learn about herbs or organic farming as our farm is solar powered and environmentally conscious. We are continually working to wards holistic farming so if you have knowledge or would like to learn with us please come for a visit.

We are located on the banks of the Pembina river with ample opportunity for hiking, and lazing by or on the river. We are also very near a Wildland area with some beautiful lakes and canoing opportunities. A perk to coming this far north is that in August, September and October we can often see the northern lights.

Accomodations are in an RV trailer during the warm months (April thru September). You can eat with the family or we can make it possible for you to do your own cooking.

Your jobs would be to work along side us to: plant (early summer), weed, harvest herbs using various methods depending on the crop, help with wildcrafting when need, wash the crops in preperation for drying, load and unload the dryers and help out with all other aspects of getting our herbs to market. We ask that volunteers work 6 hours/day 6 days a week for room and board and any recreational oportunities we can make available.
