  • Beschreibung


    Stay on 10 acres in Roberts Creek, BC Canada on the slopes of Mount Elphinstone. Real wilderness begins right behind the kitchen, although we are 15 minutes from two small towns and a 35 minute ferry to Vancouver.

    We are a male couple in a long-term relationship with deep connections to diverse others. We renovated this property to gift friends and others through non-commercial intentional gatherings. Our objective is to nurture authentic human relationships in real time and space, building friendship and community through non-commercial experience. We are both vaccinated and require our Workaways to be. We welcome outgoing, interactive, creative and actualized adults.

    We offer a sense of non-traditional family to mindful explorers. We have shared forest adventures, local parties, meditation, hikes, yoga and light workouts with many Workaways. We often share movie nights and dinners with friends, whether with locals or from the city and you will be welcome to join us. Hunt for mushrooms in the woods. If you participated at the Burning Man Festival before it commodified itself and found your tribe then, you will find friends here. We offer a safe space where you can be your authentic self. It's Canada and we are 420 friendly. One of our Workaways introduced the idea of morning hugs and we like that as a tradition to build feelings of trust and well-being.

    From gardening to light forestry, from woodwork to crafts, from meditation to yoga and traditional strength training, we welcome experienced Workaways as valued friends. We take the lead on different projects and happy to coach, valuing your input. We are looking for helpful assistance from Workaways as enthusiastic assistants or mentors during work hours. Depending on your skills, you might tackle some tasks or projects on your own. Please join us with a neighbour at 7am for yoga, optional meditation with Tom after that. We like to work from 9a to noon, break for lunch then spend an hour on cleanup or prep for the next day. A key objective, after getting a day's work done, has been to share time and space building friendship that transcends age. We are all time travellers.

    Our big projects are behind us now so smaller workshop projects are in the queue, along with growing food and general maintenance of both house and property. Fire proofing the property by removing forest floor debris is always on the list.

    Your room in the main house has a view of distant lights of Nanaimo on Vancouver Island across the Salish Sea; a guest bathroom is across the hall. Workaway volunteers are asked to get involved with meal preparation through to cleanup while helping to keep our shared space in reasonable order.

    You can hike 100km of trails that start right off the property. You might want to take a ritual cold dip in a mountain stream surrounded by pink granite boulders just 5 minutes walk into the forest from the back door.

    During your time off during the day or at night, a multi-purpose room holds djembe drums, a keyboard, weights, yoga mats and props, massage table and projection video with big sound.

    Regional bus servicing ferry and nearby towns is a 1km walk from the property. Vancouver is close enough for a day trip. Roberts Creek village is a 12 min bike ride for able bikers or a 45 minute walk. Nearby towns Gibsons and Sechelt offer typical small town supplies, a short bus ride away. Ocean access is 2km down the road.
