We are a family of 4 who live in a beautiful beachside community on Vancouver Island. We own and operate a herbal medicine business from our home. We have a small store in our front yard where both tourists and locals can find herbal remedies for their ailments.
We love to share in the many projects that we have on the go however the most important piece for us is with meal preparation and planning. We ask that there be 5 days of lunches and dinners prepared and 2 days off. If you love to work with organic ingredients and eat healthy food, we'd love to have the support.
A few of the other tasks would be:
~ harvesting medicines
~ weeding and planting the gardens
~ learning about the medicinal properties of plants & helping to make products
~ cleaning the chicken coop and collection of eggs
We prefer those who can stay 2 weeks and longer.
We are a 2 minute walk to a swimming river and a 7 minute walk to Saratoga Beach (shown in pictures). Our neighbourhood is very peaceful with many trails and outdoor activities to enjoy.

We have an incredible natural world at our doorsteps. There are plenty of trails, hikes, beaches, and rivers to explore. We love to share in all things plant medicines and generally connect with those who are seeking a healing lifestyle.
Our perfect fit would be those who have a love for the natural world and are interested to learn more about plant-based healing. We invite those who have a desire to eat organic food and LOVE TO COOK. We are very motivated people and tend to keep pretty active with projects around the house and yard.
The accommodation is a private 19" travel trailer.
