Hey, fellow communards!
You already live in an income sharing community. Do you also have experience in managing a big garden, or a small farm? Would you like to live a unique experience, in a different country, another climate, surrounded by people speaking a foreign language, and yet, feel at home in a egalitarian tribe that decides by consensus, is LGBTQ+ friendly and shares other values, cultural traits and ways of life?
Why not take the leap, and LEX? (as in « Labor Exchange ») https://www.thefec.org/about/projects/lex/ Or simply, take a paid job in an international intentional community environment.
COOPERATIVE LES POTAGERS PARTAGÉS IS HIRING!
An organic local farm, in a 5 years old intentional community, is looking for a production manager for the 2021 season
From Mai to November, come live in Gaspésie, Québec, Canada!
The « Po-Pa », is: 40 vegetable baskets; 5 employees; 25 different vegetables, and at least 8 types of seeds; and a coop business well knitted in its larger community!

You know what? Le Manoir is still ‘’on the map’’! Yes, yes! On the far east, and up… higher, higher… Oh, yeah, have I forgot to mention? We are on the other side of the border.
Remember? This is a ‘’not-only-foreign-but-exotic’’ creature of the FEC, french speaking, and still unvisited by you, american members of the income sharing diaspora.
Last september, Le Manoir was celebrating its 5th year of existence.
The community is actually down to 4 adult members. We are gently settling in this new normal, as last year has been rich in turnover.
Winter is usually a quieter season. It brings a pause in farm and building work. As the day light becomes scarce and the snow slowly covers the fields with its white mantle, we ‘’turn inward’’.
Between a field hockey game and a cross-country ski trip in the surrounding forest, we get together around a warm fire. We think and discuss, digest the past months and make plans for the future. What’s in for 2021? We definitely will be looking for new members. The rest is yet to be seen (and lived!).
Here’s a video which features Le Manoir. It’s in French with English subtitles–also there is a warning with it: “This film contains scenes of animal slaughter.” However there is a nice piece about Le Manoir at the beginning of the film, before any scenes of animal slaughter: https://www.nfb.ca/film/gatherings-episode-1-territories/
