Région: Salt Spring Island, BC, CanadaWe are developing 5 acres on Salt Spring Island in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. We are building new garden areas and improving those that we started over the last 4 years. A lot of the work will be related to digging new areas, planting, mixing soil, etc. We are also requiring the assistance of a carpenter/builder as we have fences and gates to build and we are renovating certain areas of our buildings. We eat very healthy with a lot from our gardens. We are mostly vegetarian. We prefer to take in one worker at a time. We can offer very comfortable accommodations with internet. We have a full bath available in another building. We are a retired couple and have a lot of energy and plans. No children. We live in a very beautiful area near the ocean (5 minutes) and just above the best hiking trails on the island. There is a lot to do here on this island and Vancouver is very close and easy to get to. Most workers that have stayed with us have taken the time to visit Vancouver Island including Victoria, Tofino and other areas directly on the Pacific ocean.
