    You have now stumbled upon your dream workaway situation! We are a big extended family sharing a large beautiful property in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island where we have created an "eco-homestead". We have large gardens, a house that is being expanded as well as other building projects and five children that we could use help with. We are very into food and music and friends so do a lot of entertaining (when health restrictions allow!). We are a very busy household with lots of activities and visitors so there is never a dull moment. If you are looking for an opportunity to experience an open-minded, artistic, ecologically-minded family then this is your place.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    We love to share our food and stories with you. Even though we are remote we have an extended community of interesting people who gather at our place regularly to share food and play music. We are unusual in that we live in an "extended-family" kind of community and have unusual and different eco-buildings on our property. We like good conversation and you will get lots of opportunity to practice english.

  • Arbeit


    We need help with weeding, amending, planting, mulching, watering and harvesting our gardens. Possibly some landscaping or other chores that need a good back (chopping wood?). We are also building an extension on our house and a bathhouse outbuilding so if you have building skills great! There are four older boys aged 11-16 and a 20 month old. The older boys are pretty self-sufficient but sometimes need rides places. The 20 month old is very cute and very busy and we'd love some help watching him.

    We have large gardens that we eat from most of the summer. We love cooking and eat delicious, plentiful (non-vegetarian) meals. We do a lot of canning and preserving at the end of the summer. There is always help needed in the kitchen...

    We enjoy music (listening and playing) and good conversation and value a sense of humour, initiative, and joy-full nature. A strong back, crafty hands or experience with wood would definitely be an asset. We prefer a longer stay- three or four weeks but will consider any length.

  • Unterkunft


    We have a rustic trailer that was recently renovated with a small bed (big enough for a couple who don't mind being cozy!). There is a small table with a bench on each side. We provide clean bedding and a heater when it's cold. There is a solar outdoor shower and composting toilet. Breakfasts and sometimes lunch are generally help-yourself from our kitchen but we cook dinner and eat as a family. There is always plentiful healthy food.

    We are a long way out a gravel road so having your own transportation can be helpful though not necessary as we drive to town regularly. We are a short walk to the famous Kinsol Trestle over the Koksilah River, and there are bikes you can borrow to explore. The Trans-Canada Trail runs through our property. It is a reasonable bike ride to the lake or to town (Duncan).
