We are a family of 5, kids aged 24, 22 and 19. We have lots of pets including dogs, cats, goats and horses. We live on an old farm on the Saanich Peninsula on Vancouver Island.
We also have a farm in the Sayward Valley on Northern Vancouver Island.

The farm was built in 1885 and comprised of 600 acres around Sidney in North Saanich. It is now 9 acres and all the livestock is for pleasure rather than production! We have a large garden with fruit trees and vegetables. The help includes general building maintenance, gardening and animal care.
We have a vineyard which requires work throughout the summer, with harvest occurring in late Sept/October. Pruning starts in January so if you've always wanted to prune vines, now is your chance!
We have a boat which we use whenever we can and love to take people out for a cruise!
The kids are budding musicians! Guitars, drums, singing etc. so if you play so much the better.
If you kitesurf, maybe we can fit in some trips to the beach.
Cultural exchange should benefit both parties and although we have a European based culture workawayers can learn about the way Canadians and particularly Vancouver Islanders look at the world. Not only do the host and traveller benefit but there is much exchange, comparison and learning between travellers.
Depending on numbers either a room in our log house with shared bathroom or travel trailer using inside facilities.
We are 15mins (walking) from Sidney and a little closer to bus routes to Victoria. The Swartz Bay ferry terminal and airport are close as well. Own transport would be a benefit for the Sayward Farm but not a requirement.
