Our Apprenticeship programme  is designed to prepare people for ecovillage life with an intent to teach some transferable skills.  On site time can be 30 days or more. Some fees are involved.

Volunteers are especially important for projects and seasonal aspects of the farm. Often, more hands make light work. Planting, harvesting, garden maintenance, food preservation, building, etc., are tasks that happen every year. People come from all over the world for typically 7-14 days to experience life in rural Canada. Work/trade is the rule. For more information contact us: info@kakwaecovillage.com


“I like spending time at Kakwa because fundamentally the ecovillage model is a solution to many of the worlds problems. Decentralization coupled with an integration into the local biome is a practical, grass roots path to a more sensible life, on many levels. Aside from my ideological lens on the situation the raw natural beauty and ecological purity of the Kakwa land-base is surreal – that in itself is an intrinsic motivating factor that keeps me coming back.”  Jerell Friesen, Edmonton, AB
