    Description

    organic farm with orchards and horses, on a tidal inlet on popular Salt Spring Island. A sanctuary that strives to give people an intimate experience with nature, birdlife, horses, dogs, and farm sustenance. Looking for helpers who truly honor mother earth, and want to help keep the farm beautiful, harvest and trim, and enjoy the gifts the island has to offer. My helpers built me a greenhouse this year, built and repaired fences, planted gardens - everything is looking beautiful thanks to all their wonderful efforts.

    Help

    regular chores include cleaning the horse stalls and paddocks, harvesting, pruning, indoor help is always appreciated as well. It is not required to help indoors but if someone enjoys it, that's great. Right now there are structures to build but it's raining a lot so indoor work can be painting, putting up wall paneling, making signs, or helping cook, clean, and create things. It's a beautiful settings, so it's enjoyable. A helper is always encouraged to be happy and choose what suits them best.

    Accommodation

    furnished room in the farmhouse.
    The food is 100% organic, it would be nice to have helpers that appreciate the extra effort and cost of providing this. Breakfasts consist of home made granola, yogurt, farm fruit, eggs, pancakes, your choice. Lunch is again choice of breads, cheeses, avocados, salads, and dinner is a group effort where we all sit together to enjoy.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    the summer is particularly busy, lots of harvesting fruit and berries, maintaining fencing, watering, . There are canoes here, bicycles, paddleboard, hikes & beaches nearby, village is close too, so lots to do and explore. The seaside deck is very cool on the warm summer days, there are also many large trees and forests surrounding the farm to keep it's integrity intact. Sunsets are the best! The winter brings us indoors more, but we learn to face the elements every day, and plan accordingly. Your help is always greatly appreciated!~
