  • Description

    Description

    We are a fun, chill, active family consisting of my husband and I and our 14 year old son. We are looking for one person (possibly 2) to come and stay on our acreage and help with the garden, chicken and goat clearing land, walking the dog etc... Time commitment is negotiable. We always love helping our workawayer's figure out their next step in Adventure! We live 6kms from the little city centre of Courtenay on 17 acres of mostly forested land. There is access to bikes, paddle boards, bonfires, adventures, and good people to hang out with if interested.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are a very active family and we own a sports store in town and have access to many fun activities and adventures, we are 20 minutes from Mount Washington alpine resort and 10 mins to the ocean and minutes from rivers. We love to travel when we aren't homesteading!

  • Help

    Help

    Tasks would include, weeding, watering, harvesting and planting in the garden. We have 30 chickens and 2 goats so help with them would be great too! Clearing land, Bucking, chopping and stacking fire wood. Building projects if skilled to do so. We also love having fun, and going to the beach for bbq's after a good days work, or biking down to the river for a dip mid day to cool off! Four hours of help a day is expected and food from the garden and some meals are shared, or we can do all the cooking too. (Access to grocery stores is easy for ease with dietary restrictions and meal timing... This is negotiable)
