We are a fun, chill, active family consisting of my husband and I and our 13 year old son. We are looking for fun people (we can take up to three) to come and stay on our acreage and help with the garden and clearing land. 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.
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
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!
Tasks would include, weeding, watering, harvesting and planting in the garden. Clearing land with a brush saw, chain saw, or hand tools depending on your comfort level. 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)
We have a clean and rustic, very cozy, and hip airstream trailer with a queen size bed with comfy sheets pillows and a feather duvet. A out side solar shower and composting toilet is used. The trailer is close to the garden in a private part of the woods on our property. We also have a Boler trailer to stay in, or a loft in our home....Options.
We live a very healthy lifestyle with clean surroundings and kind hearts, we would expect the same in return for anyone staying with us. We love going on paddle board, running, mountain biking, river tubing, canoeing, hiking, camping adventures that we would encourage our guests to come on too.
