    Description

    If you want to experience a slice of heaven on earth, we might be right for you. We are a 10 acre farm in Winlaw, BC. This is the heart of the Slocan Valley! Life here is special. We raise poultry as well as a large garden. This year we are raising food as well as cannabis . I recently became a licensed cultivator with Health Canada. Daily work will vary from day to day according to the seasons. Currently there is lots of weeding and mulching in the garden. We have a small cabin, converted school bus and camping spots to stay in. Food will be provided if you’re working 4-5 hours a day . Most times will need to do your own cooking and clean up, however we enjoy shared meals sometimes as well.
    You will need to have enough monetary funds to supply your own personal needs .Please bring appropriate clothing and foot wear as well as a good head light or flashlight .World class outdoor activities including skiing, hiking, fishing, rock climbing, and mountain biking are all close by.
    **we are still accepting workers during this unique time. You can expect to be isolated for the first 14 days. After that time, you are welcome to enjoy the rest of the farm😊 we are especially looking for kitchen helper or pottery assistants for my artist wife.

    Help

    Farm and garden help. We are always busy . In the winter things slow down a bit. That gives us a chance to enjoy the snow and get ready for 2020! Cooking skills are always appreciated. Carpentry skills are awesome. I have been slowly rebuilding a small house over the last 10 years. There’s still drywall to hang, a bathroom to tile the floor etc.
