    Beschreibung

    We are located on Vancouver Island in the foothills below the Comox Glacier, 6 km. from the ocean and have hosted travelling helpers for 18 years. Accommodation is a rustic and basic bright loft in the bicycle building workshop. (Unheated but with plenty of quilts and a hot water bottle, plus the house is warmed with a cozy wood cook stove in cool weather.) We have several garden plots, a greenhouse, fruit trees and a walnut tree. I am a writer, a folk musician and a community and social justice advocate and Ross is a peace activist, an alternative bicycle designer, specializing in power assist and recumbent bicycles, utility cycling and bike packing. The tasks depend on the season and include general gardening work such as compost making, planting, weeding, mulching, harvesting, fence repair, plus firewood, bicycle repair, help in the kitchen and occasionally some house work. We eat organic vegetarian meals, fish, chicken and meat. There are wilderness outdoor recreational activities close by, including hiking, skiing, mountain biking and swimming. There are cultural events in the village of Cumberland, 3 km. away, and in Courtenay, 9 km. away. We have bikes to lend and there is a local bus system. We share our house with one cat. As we are a small place we are open to shorter stays.We request that helpers please refrain from using chemically scented products while staying with us. The garden is in full swing now and there is much weeding to be done. We are also looking to complete some simple carpentry projects and would be very happy to host someone who has some woodworking skills.
    We did not host visitors in 2020 due to Covid 19 but are feeling more comfortable now that we have been vaccinated.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    There is always plenty of stimulating chatter about a large range of topics such as healthy eating, world politics, peace activism, the environment and climate change. And of course travel, gardening, cooking and family histories. As I was born in India I love to talk about Indian culture and politics and Ross is especially keen on fitness and exercise.
