    .....UPDATES.... Due to the Pandemic the community aspect of the farm has suffered greatly. Its still bustling and people are here 7 days a week but the atmosphere here can be lonely at times. You have to be a self starter / confident and use initiative to start on jobs without being asked! Farm school is now a huge aspect to the farm and runs Mon to Thurs every week. 28 children are enrolled, and so if you arn't comfortable / happy around children don't apply! Ive updated the accommodation details. We take COVID very seriously, but are willing to open our bubble to the right person(s) that behave safely and follow guidelines submitted by Dr Bonnie.

    My name is Liam and I've been here as a Work-Away since 2019 November, an opportunity came up to be part of the team during my stay and I didnt think twice, so i'm now here for the foreseeable future! Part of my responsibility is to coordinate you and make sure you have a fun, safe time whilst you are here. I'm in charge of managing the volunteers and generally if anything needs looking at on the farm im on it! exciting stuff :) you will have lots of free time to explore and I cant express how welcoming people are here.

    We are a small farm within the City of Vancouver that works towards growing quality food following agroecological principles; to provide sustainable farm and food education through empowering people of all ages with traditional skills and knowledge; and to protect and preserve the Agriculture Land Reserve (ALR) within BC by advocating for and supporting other local farmers and food producers. We are on a 2 acre farm that has horses, goats, sheep, chickens, ducks, and bees - an orchard, and two large gardens to grow food. We host a non-profit therapeutic riding program, horseback riding school, and an educational, working farm. Thus is an inclusive farm and welcomes all.

    - being a part of an inclusive environment: fostering respect and welcoming diversity
    - building, carpentry, repair and maintenance of facilities
    - having a 'can-do' attitude for many tasks that can come up on a day-to-day basis; every day is different!
