It seems the Apprenticeship Program is a hit! I have many individuals who expressed an interest in the program. Some from as far away as the UK and California. Since it is very expensive to fly over every weekend, I decided to tweak the program to accommodate what people are asking for. The vast majority of individuals would rather be here for a week or two instead of coming out on weekends. So here is what we can do:
For local people who live in or around Edmonton, you are still welcome to come out for 120 hours over 8 weekends over a period of 4 months. This is to accommodate people who work and who are close by. These individuals will be able to experience a wide range of things due to diversity of tasks performed each weekend over 4 months.
For non-local people, you are welcome to come out for either one or two weeks. I will make the first two weeks of each month available for people who want to participate in the apprenticeship program. I will do everything I can to ensure you experience a wide range of activities so that you get a good exposure to all aspects of off grid living. Just as I explained in my previous news letter. I need $50 / day to cover food and other incidentals.
*If you work for 16 hours over two days then you will receive a free 3 month membership to my website ($349 value)
*If you work for 60 hours over one week then you will receive a free 1 year membership to my website ($995 value)
*If you work for 120 hours over two weeks then you will receive a free lifetime membership ($2995 value)
I can currently accommodate 2 or 3 people at a time. So if you are interested in this program then please book quickly. I am currently booking for the first two weeks in August through to December 2012. You can contact me via e-mail at the bottom of the page.
Apprenticeship Program Details
July & August – We will mainly focus of building fences, chicken tractors, mounting solar panels, working on greenhouse, building a rocket stove, harvesting wood, and other construction type tasks.
September & October – We will focus on harvesting the garden, chickens and hay for winter. May also include preserving, freezing, canning, etc. W e will also continue with construction as long as the weather holds out.
November & December – We will focus on preparing the buildings and animals for winter. Putting things away so that we don’t loose stuff under the snow and making sure we have enough feed, bedding, etc for the winter. Will also include ensuring that generators, fuel and solar systems are ready as well.
Please be patient with me as I do get a large volume of e-mail and I spend a lot of time outside working on projects around the yard. I ask that you put “Apprenticeship Program” in the subject line and that way I can give those e-mails a high priority.
