    Description

    Hello,
    We are looking for 1-2 helpers, at a time, to assist with the revitalization of our 100 year old farm located approx 12 km outside of Port Alberni. It is a quiet, peaceful spot, nestled at the base of the picturesque Beaufort Range, with field and forest views.

    Work includes:
    yard cleanup - clearing branches, debris into burn piles, lawn mowing, weed eating;
    gardening - planting & weeding;
    painting outbuildings;
    tending animals - pigs & chickens;
    household chores - light cleaning


    I would really love to start on a labyrinth, so if you have experience constructing one, or just love a challenge, this may be a great place for you!
    Accommodation is in our house, in a separate suite, with full kitchen and bath. Because of our busy schedule, I have found it easier to provide groceries for breakfast and lunch; you are responsible for your own cooking and evening meal.
    Work schedule is flexible, it depends on what needs to be done, weather etc. An average of 3-4 hours a day is expected - some days may be longer, others shorter.
    For your down time, the Alberni Valley has many attractions and outdoor pursuits - hiking, biking, swimming, boating, fishing and more. One attraction very close to the farm is Stamp Falls Provincial Park. We are 1 1/2 hours from the west coast - Tofino & Ucluelet.
    There isn't a bus system to the farm so your own car is essential.. We have cell reception and WIFI available also.
    No smoking, drugs or alcohol permitted.

    Situated at the base of the Beaufort Range and minutes to the stunning Stamp River. The area provides incredible hiking, biking, swimming, boating, fishing and is an hour and half drive to Tofino - west coast of Vancouver Island.
    We are 12km out of town so a car is handy to have as there is no public transit.

    No smoking, drinking or drug use.
