I'm a 61-year-old Canadian semi-retired media professional and I'm looking for a kibbutz where I can be a volunteer for about six months, or perhaps longer, preferably with access to an Ulpan. All the programs seem to be aimed at much younger folks. (The link to kibbutz.com.au is dead.)

you are right, that the Ulpan Kibbutz program is meant for people up to 28 years of age, but I have seen also older persons in this program - over 40 years of age...
I would suggest the following:
1) you can contact branch of Jewish Agency (Sochnut), which is closest to you - in Canada, they should be able to help to find the right program for you.
2) you may try to contact Kibbutz Malkiya - it is very friendly Kibbutz in the North, just on Israeli border with Lebanon - great people, great nature, great place for pioneers!
I was there for 1 year in the past and it was very nice and I can suggest it - I do not know, what is the present situation with their programs now, but they had Ulpan Kibbutz and also volunteer program. So, may be, this can be also one of the options...
After a few years of cooking experiance for private entities and private events, Sarin Benhaim began her Glatt Kosher Miami Restaurant. With a little help from herfriends and family, she built Sarina's Kitchen, a showcase for Glatt Kosher experiance. The restaurant is simple, casual and relaxed. You can wear jeans or a suit, you can drink beer or champagne. Truly, it is all about the food. Every customer has the full attention and the feeling of eating home, the feel of the Jewish Mom's Kitechen and love.
Visiting Sarina's Kitchen Kosher Restaurant is like coming over to Benhaim’s house for friday night dinner. Welcoming you at the door, cooking your food, serving your drinks. Chef Sarin visits as many tables as she can each evening, mostly to talk and express her knowledge about the food. This is his dream come true, her passion and her life.
